Likely D, due to the national environment, but Menendez would be losing in a Clinton midterm. Yet another example that candidate quality matters.

But you know that there was a major crapping of the diapers in NJ if we are more likely to win PA and MI than NJ lmao.

Safe D, Menendez will win no matter what (and would have won even in a Clinton midterm, lol) since he has that magical (D) next to his name. I donít actually blame any Democrat for voting for him, but itís sad that this scumbag made it out of the primary.

A few brighter spots for Menendez, the poll is only 8% black, but NJ electorate is around 14% black, and asians are less than 1% of the poll, but are over 8% of NJ and a little under that in the electorate. Menendez is probably leading by 5-6.

This poll also  has only a 4% Hispanic sample in a state where 18% of the population  are Hispanic.

Oh wow, I did not catch that one at first, thanks for pointing it out. Yeah I looked and they clock in at a slightly smaller 14% of the electorate usually, but that is significantly more than 4%, and they go heavier than even the generic American hispanic.

Yeah, I feel a little better now, if we factor in the hispanic deficit in the poll too, Menendez is probably up by 7-8.

New Jersey has a history of really high undecideds and nearly all undecided voters choosing the Democrat, even outside of D wave years, so I wouldn't take this too seriously as indicative of a competitive race. If the Republicans had run someone better than Hugin... maybe.

More like a bad thing. Hugin would clearly be a far better Senator.

Unfortunately, this poll way under sampled miniorities, so Menendez is probably leading by much more

Stockton likes to oversample whites.

Suuuuure. Anyway, Menendez will definitely win by an underwhelming margin, but if candidate quality matters so much more than the partisan lean of a state, why isn't he losing by significantly more than any other incumbent Democrat?

It's obvious that the fact that this is a stubbornly Democratic state that's facing a blue wave is going to save Menendez.

That's exactly my point. The fact that New Jersey is a blue state and that this year is going to be Democratic-friendly have more impact on this race than Menendez being a terrible candidate.

According to exit polls from past off-year elections in NJ, African-American's have been about 10% of the electorate (looking back at 2006 and 2017), and not 14% which is the presidential level. Same thing for Asians, they have consistently been about 3% of the electorate in past off-year elections, so this poll isn't that far off. But who knows, that could all change.

If this is the case then the poll doesnít tell us much

Stockton always under samples minority voters. You'd think they would have tried to correct this by now.

2017 had record low turnout which 2018 wont have and 2006 was 12 years ago and the state has gotten a lot less white since then.
