The poll of 500 likely primary voters in the fifth congressional district, conducted by Victory Phones for the Lonegan campaign, had Lonegan leading McCann 46% to 27%, with the remainder undecided.

A majority of those polled, 51%, lived in Bergen County, with Sussex and Warren County residents making up 26% and 17% of the sample, respectively. Only 7% of those polled lived in Passaic county.

On the flip side, 20% said they had a somewhat or extremely unfavorable view of McCann, while 18% said the same of Lonegan.
