Sen. Cory Booker has the early advantage in his bid for reelection, but his lead is tempered by an unsettled electorate. The Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll also found that Pres. Barack Obama’s ratings have slipped in the Garden State, with residents holding negative views on his handling of Iraq and his signature health care policy.
The early line on this year’s New Jersey Senate race has incumbent Cory Booker garnering support from 43% of registered voters and challenger Jeff Bell with 23%. Another 15% say they would vote for another candidate at this early stage of the campaign and 17% are undecided. Booker garners the support of 73% of Democrats and Bell has the backing of 61% of his fellow Republicans. Independents give Booker a 35% to 20% edge. It’s worth noting that 18% of independents, 13% of Republicans, and 12% of Democrats say they would back a third party candidate if the election were today.—Monmouth University

The survey shows Canadians are split over whether the decision to allow energy company Enbridge to build an oil pipeline through northern Alberta and BC – provided it meets 209 conditions – was the correct one. Just over one-third (37%) say they think the decision was right. About the same number (34%) say the decision was wrong and nearly one-third (29%) say they aren’t sure.
Asked about those 209 conditions, just over forty per cent (43%) say they are enough to address concerns about the project, while 37 per cent say they’re not enough, and one-fifth (20%) say they aren’t sure.
When asked what factor should take greater priority in shaping this country’s energy policy, the majority of Canadians – 58 per cent – say protecting the environment is the biggest priority, while 42 per cent say the biggest priority is encouraging economic growth.—Angus Reid
