The race for the only Democratic Senate seat that’s at risk this year is still basically a dead heat, butBob Menendez is surging.
The new Quinnipiac University poll shows [Sen. Robert] Menendez favored by 49 percent of likely voters, compared to 45 percent of those polled favoring [Tom Kean Jr.]. Six percent were undecided.
In the last Quinnipiac poll, released Sept. 20, Kean was favored by 48 percent of likely voters with Menendez at 45 percent.
Both polls have a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points, meaning the difference between the candidates is not clear-cut. Also, 18 percent of those polled said they could change their mind before Election Day.
