Hugin polling similar to other NJ GOP Senate candidates

A comparison of other Monmouth polls on New Jersey Senate race

By David Wildstein, October 18 2018 11:29 am

The increasingly dirty and exorbitantly expensive campaign for New Jersey’s United States Senate seat between incumbent Bob Menendez and Bob Hugin has produced polling numbers from Monmouth University, now the gold-standard of independent polls in New Jersey, that are not much different that previous races that more civil and less costly.

The Monmouth poll released this morning has Menendez, ahead 49%-40% among likely voters over Hugin.

Hugin is polling about the same as other recent Republican U.S. Senate candidates, all in Monmouth University polls of likely voters:

* October 6, 2014: Cory Booker leading Jeff Bell 53%-38%.

* October 1, 2013: Booker leading Steve Lonegan 53%-40%, fifteen days before the special election to replace Frank Lautenberg.

* September 25, 2012: Menendez leading Joe Kyrillos 49%-34%.

* October 23, 2008: Lautenberg leading Dick Zimmer 52%-36%.

* October 22, 2006: Menendez leading Tom Kean, Jr. 48%-39%.

Democrats have not lost a U.S. Senate race in New Jersey since 1972; only Hawaii (1970) has gone longer without a Republican U.S. Senate win.  There are 920,000 more Democrats in New Jersey than Republicans.

  1. I don’t believe this poll a lot of these polls I don’t trust a lot of the papers are for menendez. the Washington examiner has bob hugin down 2 points 42 to 40 came out today people of n.j. this is a dead heat race vote Nov. 6 that is the real poll the people poll. let’s retire bob menendez it is about time we the people of n.j. deserve better and bob hugin is the man. Vote bob hugin

  2. Polls mean nothing dems and the papers in n.j. trying to pump menendez up. But I do believe the Washington examiner poll They are honest and reliable polls. They probably call the same democrats that will vote for him. What a joke they no bob hugin is winning they are afraid and trying to show they are winning. Vote for a real man Vote bob hugin p.s. believe the Washington examiner poll honest real poll dead heat race, tied race

  3. I don’t believe this Monmouth poll, a more reliable one seems to be Stockton which had Menendez up only 2 points (45-43). Looking back at their polls from previous elections they seem to be pretty accurate. So I do believe this race is a dead heat and and NJ deserves better which is why I already voted for Hugin.
