Today is Tuesday. Tuesdays are when people vote. Except in New Jersey in 2013. Wednesday is the day to vote for those who are interested in the special Senate election.
Cory Booker still has a double digit lead over Steve Lonegan, but that’s been falling lately. Being on a Wednesday in October with plenty of headlines about other national issues, that means the turnout may be key to who wins instead of typical polls.
I’ll be honest, I don’t like Lonegan. But, if I lived in New Jersey, I’d vote for him. The fact is that Cory Booker is going to be a vote for every gun control bill that ever makes it up for a vote. He’ll probably sign on as a sponsor to some of the most extreme gun control fantasy bills as well. So, with that in mind, the best vote on the gun issue is Lonegan. While the numbers point to a clear Booker win, it’s the ability to turn out motivated voters that may make a difference in the final tally over any turnout models the pollsters are currently using.
