Skip to comments.New Jersey Senate: Lautenberg Hangs on to Lead
Posted on 09/19/2008 2:54:20 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg leads Republican challenger Dick Zimmer by seven percentage points in New Jerseys U.S. Senate race. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the Garden State finds Lautenberg on top 49% to 42%.
Thats closer than the race was last month, but Lauternberg continues to hover right around the 50% level of support. Incumbents who poll below 50% are generally considered potentially vulnerable, and the New Jersey senator is the only Democrat in that category at the moment.

This race now looks to be the GOP’s best chance of unseating a Democrat Senator.
vulnerable...????...in this guy's case who should be considered lucky he's vertical

I have friends who live in New Jersey. Other than the politics, it is a fine place. Historical sites, good employment, good environment, and the crumbiest politicians who ever just barely avoided going to jail. Curious.
If this is the best chance we have at 7 points...should I take an antidepressant?
Prozac may do the trick.
Lautenberg is nasty garbage, hated by his colleagues, worthless, and they elect and reelect him.
What is the appeal?
This ain’t pretty on the Senate side. We get an “F” for recruitment. “F” as in f**k-up:
Not to mention all the cadavers that will be voting to send one of their own back to the senate.
The Zimmer campaign has been invisible, and Lautenberg is still below 50%. This is a huge lost opportunity.
John Ensign is running the NRSC. Maybe he’ll make a play, espeically with Republicans having few opportunities this year.
What kind of state votes for a Lautenberg? Answer: a state with the lowest collective intelligence in the country!
Gee whiz, he was in office back when I was in college in Jersey. I didn’t even realize that Lautenberg was still alive?
It’s hard to believe that you could come up with a more corrupt tifecta than Corzine as governor, Lautenberg and the other joker that they have as US senator.
Shame on my home state. Too bad Kean could not have been in this race.
>>This race now looks to be the GOPs best chance of unseating a Democrat Senator.
You must be joking. Lautenberg could be dead (as if anyone can tell the difference) and he would STILL get elected. People in NJ get raped, year after year, complain a lot, THEN REELECT THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE RAPING THEM.

The dead live!
How do they keep him awake?
When told of Paleo Conservative’s catty comment, Senator Lautenberg was heard to say “Grr! Fire bad!”
Lautenberg is still alive? I thought they were just propping up his corpse in his Senate seat till the next election.
That Landreiu has got to go down!!! 2 cycles without a Senate pickup would be ghastly.
As discussed before of course there are no open seats and we can’t beat incumbents though we usually get 1 of them.
Carnahan 02 (appointed)
Fowler/Sanford (NC) 92
John Melcher (MT) 88
(King RINO Lowell Weicker beaten by Lieberman who ran to his right 88)
Walter Huddleston (KY) 84
Howard Cannon (NV) 82
80 NINE beaten, last time there were more than 2 beaten in a year. Since then only 12, one of them appointed and one of them, Wofford, having won only a special election.
The rats have beaten 12 in 00-06! And 31 in same timeframe the GOP beat 12.
Every time a rat senator goes down an angel get’s it’s wings.
