Booker Has Inside Track For US Senate Seat in NJ

Seeing that I did not travel to Arizona or Missouri in the last few days, I guess I will keep this website going. Public Policy Polling has started to release some numbers for their poll for the state of New Jersey, but this first release sticks to the US Senate race and the possible match ups there.

US SENATE – NEW JERSEY (PPP)
Frank Lautenberg (D-inc) 48%
Kim Guadagno (R) 33%

Cory Booker (D) 52%
Kim Guadgano (R) 29%

Rob Andrews (D) 35%
Kim Guadgano (R) 34%

Frank Pallone (D) 32%
Kim Guadagno (R) 32%

On the primary side, Booker would crush Lautenberg in a Democratic primary and would also lead a primary field without Lautenberg.

US SENATE – NEW JERSEY – DEM PRIMARY (PPP)
Cory Booker 59%
Frank Lautenberg (inc) 22%

Cory Booker 48%
Rob Andrews 17%
Frank Pallone 13%

Both polls were done November 26-28 among 600 General Election voters and 300 primary election voters. PPP does state this about the gubernatorial portion of the poll they will release tomorrow apparently.

The Governor’s race would be an uphill battle for Booker as two polls released earlier this week show and ours, out tomorrow, will as well. But the Senate seat may be his for the taking if he’s looking for a promotion.

PPP also has numbers from Illinois that I expect we will see today or tomorrow.

    Vote jason

  2. jason says:

    The fastest a-hole gets the votes.

  3. Bitterlaw says:

    jason – If you drop out, you can command the HHR National Guard. GF sucked at it. IP came back and set up a poetry commune. Transparent Dem Troll was less of a troll than the trolls who swarmed across GF’s open-borders.

  4. GF says:

    Bitter, you’ve been told time and again; IP and the trolls were doing jobs Hedgehoggers would not do. We cannot possibly send them back; think of their kids!

  5. Apologetic California says:

    For all the HHR candidates:

    Where are y’all birf certificates?
    Are your parents natural-born? That is, they’re only natural born if they are a.) Christian b.) Was originally here 6,000 years ago when God created North America (which includes only America, so don’t get smart and say “But Mexico is North America!”, GFY)

  6. Brandon says:

    There hasn’t been a Republican elected to the senate in 40 years. I see no reason that’s going to change any time soon.

  7. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Full disclosure: I posted CCCI on the previous thread, because I did not believe jason when he said there was a new thread.

    Looks like you might be the perfect politician!

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    Although Walt’s parents were Adam and Eve, I demand proof that they were “born.” I believe that they were “created” but not “born.”

  9. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I am amazed that Lautenberg is still there. To think he had retired, and only came back to replace the Torch all those years ago.

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    I went to college with Lautenberg’s niece. I went to law school with Kelly Ayotte. Arlen Specter and I had the same dentist when I lived in Philadelphia. My tangential relation to the Senate is pretty broad.

  11. GF says:

    My tangential relation to the Senate is pretty broad.

    Comment by Bitterlaw — November 29, 2012 @ 12:47 pm

    Another 38%+1, and you could have been a contender yourself. It’s OK, though, I have decided not to run and am endorsing the fellow A-Hole who won’t mandate scrapple. I want a governor, not a friend.

  12. rdelbov says:

    I shook Strom Thurmond’s hand in 1984.

    I did order a “Strom Thurmond Latte” at Starbucks one time. That’s a part black coffee and one part whole milk. Its served in two cups with the portions seperate but equal.

  13. GF says:

    My tangential relation to the Senate is pretty broad.

    Comment by Bitterlaw — November 29, 2012 @ 12:47 pm

    Also, is that to say that most of your connections to the United States’ Senate have been through “pretty broad[s]?” I haven’t seen the corpse’s niece, and can only speak for Ms. Kelly. Was the dentist a woman of attractive appearance? The HHR public damands answers before heading to the polls!

  14. GF says:

    Admit it, rdel, you voted Dixiecrat just to put Strom in the White House. It’s OK, I have a few Al Jolson records in my collection; we’ll just use code words to communicate so Tingles leaves us alone.

  15. Bitterlaw says:

    Lautenberg’s niece was pretty but annoying. The dentist was a man – a handsome man with strong hands, a model wife and a commitment to free-flowing novacaine.

  16. bio mom says:

    Interesting. Obama approval today in gallup is 49% but in ras is 55%

  17. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    pretty but annoying

    -Aren’t they all!

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Let’s just say she was the kind of Jewish woman that my Jewish wife can’t stand. It takes a strong personality to make my wife anti-Semitic.

  19. Apologetic California says:

    17, diff between adults and Rasmussen’s idiotic faithtfulness to an LV screen a month after the election.

  20. jason says:

    GF, if I am elected you can eat cake, not scrapple.

  21. rdelbov says:

    Lets just say I knew more then a few dixiecrat and George Wallace types. My 1st Presidential vote was for Ford in 1976. I never voted for a democrat in a a partisan election. So Strom would not have got my vote in 1948.

  22. jason says:

    ” Are your parents natural-born? ”

    Well, natural births.

  23. Bitterlaw says:

    So Strom would not have got my vote in 1948.

    rdel would have to be 85 if he could have voted in 1948. I wish he was that old so he could tell us how bad the recession was that year.

  24. jason says:

    Bitter is just name dropping.

    A sign of desperation.

    I shook hands with GHWB, GWB, Gerald Ford and just this month with Senator Toomey, but I will be dammed if I will mention it just to get votes.

  25. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    just for fun they should have polled Christie in the Senate Race

  26. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    btw i’m feeling good about the campaign. both PPP and Ras have me in 2nd place and nipping at Bitter’s toes. However Jason and Walt are running strong and almost matching me. I have to watch out for a flavor of the month surge from them

  27. jason says:

    Bitter is trying to corner the Jewish vote just because his wife is Jewish.

    I will remind everyone Romney was from Massachusetts.

  28. jason says:

    I should win based on the undecided vote. And those who make up their minds on election day. And if you love kittens and puppies.

  29. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    watch out for the undecideds, some have been talking sitting it out

  30. Apologetic California says:

    To HHR candidates:

    What’s the percentage of Americans are you willing to alienate if someone secretly videotapes you?

  31. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    Bunu has made some noise that he’d jump in cause HHR is “Bunu Country”, but that he’d wait for the convention to use strong-arm tactics to steal delegates and not give a damn what the popular vote was

  32. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    “What’s the percentage of Americans are you willing to alienate if someone secretly videotapes you?”

    0%; next question

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    I did 9 hours of radio on a 50,000 watt station with Jill Whelan of The Love Boat. I had nothing to offer so there was not a 10th hour but at least when I fail, I fail at interesting things.

  34. Bitterlaw says:

    “What’s the percentage of Americans are you willing to alienate if someone secretly videotapes you?”

    I reject the premise of the question. I will demand that they videotape me openly so I can alienate 99.37% of Americans.

    I’m not running for “Friend of HHR.” That doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings. If you poke this A-hole, don’t I bleed?*

    *I need to make that appointment.

  35. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    “If you poke this A-hole, don’t I bleed?”

    I see Bitter is going after the gay vote

  36. GF says:

    36- No, he may be making a play for the Crohn’s/UC vote, but he already has mine, so I don’t know who that would be.

    Out for the day; I’ll try to check in later. Cheers.

  37. Hector says:

    Aw-thurr. Chew need to stop this election. Come back to me.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    Well, I have the Navy vote. I wonder what it will take to get the Air Force support from Marv.

  39. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    wait, Marv is running?

  40. rdelbov says:

    I have read several books about the 1948 campaign. My favorite story about that campaign is about Truman and one of his stops in PA.

    During his whistle stop train tour Truman would speak several times a day even into the late evening. On one stop after speaking late in the day the President left the train. He walked several blocks,with a huge crowd behind him, to the house of the mother of Mike Strank. Strank was a flag raiser and had died on Iwo Jima. Truman did not make any formal comments at the Strank house but rather stayed for a few minutes and chatted. I think it was either Johnston or Pittsburg area.

    So I now I have linked or connected the 1948 economy and Iwo Jima.

  41. Apologetic California says:

    To HHR candidates:

    Sandra Fluke, paperbag or without? This is a birth control question.

  42. terry says:

    The North Dakota Senate race showed us that Republicans in GOP solid states vote 100% party line. Here you had the Presidential and the Governors race won in massive landslides and a liberal democrat win a narrow 2,000 vote race over a sitting GOP congressman running, while the GOP candidate running for his open seat one.

    It doesn’t make sense but it shows that Republican and conservative leaning voters don’t vote like their liberal counterparts in Democrat states like Mass and CT.

    It really is ashamed how easily some republicans can be fooled by a smooth moderate sounding liberal.

  43. Bitterlaw says:

    Paper bags are a notoriously poor form of birth control. I vote “No Bag.” All cats are gray in the dark.

  44. terry says:

    Senator Heidi Heitkamp has no business representing a state like North Dakota belong to the party that she does.

  45. Apologetic California says:

    33, 0%?! You have alienated me. You lost my vote, sorry Author.

    Oh and I’ve opened up a Twitter account. It used to be my spam twitter account but I decided to make it legit.
    @1999FordRanger

  46. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    “To HHR candidates:

    Sandra Fluke, paperbag or without? This is a birth control question.”

    she’s annoying but she’s not THAT ugly. w/o paper bag

  47. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    “You lost my vote, sorry Author. ”

    Republicans can’t count on CA voters anyways

  48. Tim says:

    Yes, I am holding the Dem Nominating Convention for HHR Governor in Kenya.

    It has nothing to do with where I was born….

  49. Apologetic California says:

    48, taking my 55 electoral votes with me for the next 6 straight elections.

  50. Apologetic California says:

    Correct answer is paperbag all the way, one on her head, another on your junk.

  51. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    “Yes, I am holding the Dem Nominating Convention for HHR Governor in Kenya. ”

    it’s time for Eric Dondero (or w/e his name is) to ask questions

  52. Tim says:

    #45:
    Well, there is the small matter that she won the race.

  53. El Patron AuthorLMendez; For HHR Governor: GENESIS says:

    Tim I think he means the fact that was such a winnable race for the red team and they managed to lose it

  54. Tim says:

    I don’t know if they lost it, Author, as much as she won it. She was probably the best candidate the Dems could have possibly run, there. If she was not in the race, I think the GOP would have won it. Besides, it is not unusual, historically, for the Dakotas to split their votes.

  55. terry says:

    Tim it just shows that Republicans are more considerate than Democrats when voting. Ala North Dakota vs. Mass. Warren was an awful candidate yet she still won.

  56. Apologetic California says:

    56, Warren is a horrible garbage of a human being. Like an angel tried to drown her in a bathtub when she was a baby, but she survived and out for revenge.

  57. rdelbov says:

    North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and even Nevada senate races shows folks that in small states personal contacts and one on one campaigning still matters.

    That’s one reason I favor Rounds over Noem for US senate in SD. Rounds is so good one on one. Not that Noem is not but its harder to do that from DC.

  58. Cory says:

    lisab around?
    I see that the U.S. economy “unexpectedly” grew at 2.7% in the third quarter, rather than the 2.0% they were saying before the election.
    Do you have any conspiracy theories about that, lisa?

  59. Bitterlaw says:

    I think Obama is going to start releasing real economic numbers as leverage. Unemployment will probably climb in the report for November so Obama can say, “Look. We must raise taxes to avoid the fiscal cliff or unemployment will rise even more because of those damn Republicans.” The same people who voted for him again will probably believe it.

  60. Cory says:

    Bitterlaw with the conspiracy theories??
    That’s a new twist. Is this an attempt to get the conspiracy vote for HHR Gov?

  61. Apologetic California says:

    Are we actually celebrating a 2.7% Quarterly GDP growth? Comprised mostly of increased gov spending and restocking of inventory?

  62. Cory says:

    What increased gov spending??

    2.7% is definitely a positive sign, but my point was not to celebrate, but to make fun of lisab.

  63. Bitterlaw says:

    Cory- I’m not a conspiracy guy. I just thought the efforts to get UE below 8% just before the election by no longer counting people who gave up looking for work was calculated for the election. UE will now go up to scare people into doing what Obama wants to avoid another recession.

  64. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Cory,

    why are so many companies giving out special dividends? And how many poor people will benefit from that?

    Once again, Dem policies are helpful to those with CAPITAL.
    Tim, how many of your “working men & women” actively manage a brokerage account?
    Full disclosure: I am lovin’ me some special dividends, an early CHRISTMAS gift from Uncle Barack! Costco – $7 per share. NICE!

  65. Cory says:

    Bitterlaw, people who give up looking for work are not counted in UE stats. That’s been true for a long time. Who told you that was done “just before the election” and why are you believing them?

  66. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Once again, Dem policies are helpful to those with CAPITAL.

    -Actually, the THREAT of Dem policies are helpful to those with CAPITAL.

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    Cory – Tina and others explained for more than a year why the UE numbers were a joke. I trust them.

  68. Cory says:

    You’re trusting conspiracy theorists with no handle on reality. I think that makes you just as guilty.

  69. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – How is the “shipping” business? You do not have to contribute to my campaign to get my support for you here at HHR. Of course, if there happens to be a shoebox filled with money left just inside the fence next to my office between 5:00 and 5:45 pm on Friday afternoon . . .

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    So everybody who said that the methodology of calculating UE changed is a conspiracy nut?

  71. jack says:

    71:

    Yes

  72. rdelbov says:

    Here’s puzzles to solve.

    1st the reason for QE3 was supposed to be the weak job market. Yet the BLS found 1.6 million jobs and the unemployment rate effectively dropped 3/4 of 1% in two months after QE3 started. So did we do QE3?

    2nd we are adding jobs in a torrid pace yet the obama adminstration wants to extend unemployment benefits for the long term unemployed. Some 2 million people who have been out of work for more then 50 weeks will lose unemployment benefits unless the law changes. We are adding hundreds of thousands of jobs every month now so why exactly do we need to extend benefits? Why not have one of these two million unemployed fill one of the 3.6 million job openings out there?

  73. Cory says:

    #71
    Well, it didn’t happen. So, you tell me.

  74. Bitterlaw says:

    I think rdel was on the grassy knoll.

  75. lisab says:

    “Do you have any conspiracy theories about that, lisa?”

    hmmmm … you mean like .7 of the 2.7 growth being unexpected one time government spending just before the election?

  76. Bitterlaw says:

    Hmmm? Trust Cory or Tina? Canadian leftist or Federal agent. Difficult choice.

  77. Cory says:

    What unexpected one time government spending??
    And, Jesus Christ, what’s your new conspiracy theory now?? They spent money just before the election, in an attempt to retroactively change the 3rd quarter GDP (that might take some ‘splainin), so that they could get a positive revision on November 29th??

  78. Bitterlaw says:

    Cory – Why don’t you move here? You obviously like Obama more than we do. Seriously. If he’s so great, why don’t you want to bask in his glow?

  79. rdelbov says:

    Cory let me explain to you how the Canadian 1st to the post election system works. Mercy Cory cannot even understand Canadian government and politics but he comes here to lecture us.

  80. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe I’m wrong. I have never been afraid to admit it. Does anybody else think the Feds are cooking the books when it comes to calculating the unemployment rate?

  81. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    The FEDS aren’t cooking the books, Bitter. They are just NOT counting those who have been looking for over a certain amount of time. Hopeless is not the same as unemployed!

  82. jack says:

    “The FEDS aren’t cooking the books, Bitter. They are just NOT counting those who have been looking for over a certain amount of time. Hopeless is not the same as unemployed!

    And how is that different from what they always do?
