Poll: Obama lead widens in NJ; Lautenberg ahead
TRENTON, N.J. - A new poll of New Jersey voters has Democrat Barack Obama expanding his lead over John McCain in the presidential election to more than 20 points.
The Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll issued Sunday finds Obama getting support from 55 percent of likely voters to 34 percent for McCain.
The last time a presidential candidate won New Jersey by such a large margin was Ronald Reagan over Walter Mondale in 1984.
The poll also finds Democratic incumbent Frank Lautenberg ahead of Republican challenger Dick Zimmer 50 percent to 31 percent.
21 points. Thank you.
