New Poll Finds Republican Enthusiasm High for Midterm Elections In New Jersey

A new poll released today shows New Jersey’s voters, but especially Republicans, are enthusiastic about voting in next week’s midterm elections in which the economy and inflation are seen as top issues.

According to the poll from Stockton University, when asked which party they prefer in the congressional election, 47% said they would vote for a generic Democrat while 37% in the statewide poll of registered voters picked a generic Republican candidate.

However, more voters said they supported the Republican positions on hot-button issues such as the economy, immigration and crime than were aligned with Democrats.

The economy was the clear choice as the election’s top issue, named by 25% of the
poll’s 707 respondents.

Another 11% identified inflation or cost of living as the main issue. Twelve percent identified abortion, and all other issues polled in the low single digits.

More than half (57%) were very enthusiastic about voting in the midterms, and 21% were somewhat enthusiastic.

But more Republicans said they were eager to vote; 70% were very enthusiastic compared to 54% of Democrats and 55% of independents.

Voters in blue-state New Jersey were evenly split in their feelings about President Biden,
with 46% having favorable views and 47% having unfavorable views.

A majority of 56% – including 24% of Democrats – did not want Biden to run for re-election in 2024.

However, 67% of voters – including 26% of Republicans – did not want former President
Donald Trump to run again in two years.

The poll was conducted by the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy at Stockton
University and has a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points.
