Adler has a Tough Fight

September 30, 2010

Jon Runyan

Here are the highlights from Cynthia Burton’s article Despite Lead in Polls, Adler May Have a Difficult Fight with Runyan Right Up to Election Day which was published in todays Philadelphia Inquirer.

The second independent poll in a week says that although freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. John Adler is ahead of Republican challenger Jon Runyan, the hard-fought Third District race has the potential to be close all the way to the end.

Adler leads with 40 percent of the vote, with Runyan at 31 percent, according to the Rutgers/Eagleton Poll released Wednesday.

However, polling director David Redlawsk notes that Adler’s lead is tenuous because his Democratic base is less enthusiastic than Runyan’s Republican base.

“It’s always a truism of elections that turnout matters, but in this particular case, it really matters,”

 he said.

Though 58 percent of the Republicans polled said they were “very enthusiastic” about the Nov. 2 election, only 42 percent of Democrats polled felt that way.

“The economic environment is playing in a partisan way. It’s depressing Democrats, and I mean depressing them,”

Redlawsk said.

Republicans, “smell blood in the water and are more enthusiastic.”
