Democrats Prefer Booker in Primary with Lautenberg

A new Fairleigh Dickinson poll in New Jersey finds Cory Booker (D) leading Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) in a Democratic U.S. Senate primary, 42% to 20%.

Booker's favorable rating also beats Lautenberg, 66% to 45%.

Said pollster Krista Jenkins: "These numbers suggest that some difficult days may lie ahead for the incumbent senator should he seek reelection. Senator Lautenberg's unfavorables, coupled with voter preferences for Booker as the Democratic standard bearer in the general election, complicate the landscape for this living legend amongst New Jersey politicians."
