A new poll shows the closest Garden State spread in this election cycle. Stockton University went into the field (9/19-27; 531 adult NJ residents screened as likely voters) and finds Sen. Bob Menendez (D) running ahead of former pharmaceutical company CEO Bob Hugin by only a 45-43% margin. But, the sample size of 531 respondents is very low for a state with 12 congressional districts. Often, we see New Jersey polls that are close during the election cycle, but when the votes are actually tabulated the Democratic candidate wins comfortably. Such may be the case again.
