Booker will win simply because of the overwhelming number of Democrats in the state, his skin color, and any voter fraud the Democrats decide is needed to ensure victory.

Well, I agree with AC above that Booker will probably win due to "election irregularities" but I don't think it will be on the up-and-up at all - NJ is not as liberal a state as many think, but political corruption there is rampant from what I hear. The state DID elect that fat guy for governor, but . . .  Booker doesn't even live in Newark.

This reminds me almost to the letter of what happened in New York governor primary about 3 years ago. Rick Lazio was in the lead for months, right up to the day of the primary. Then Carl Paladino won, and won big. (The Dems, along with a coordinated Albany press corp, made sure that such an upset wouldn't happen again and ran the most slanderous campaign on the planet against Paladino in the general.)

Polls are a lagging indicator. If they are breaking in one direction, expect that trend to be magnified come the time of the actual vote. Lonegan is going to be very close. I won't guarantee victory, but it is well within the realm of plausibility at this point.

"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)

I was considering voting for Booker just out of a desire to see nobama's attention focus be diminished.  Now I will be voting Lonegan because he actually has a shot.  Not a big one but a shot nonetheless.
There is a game being played on Booker, it seems, by the Jackson and Clinton types.  Like "he would be getting our coffee". 
Strategically dripped leaks and info about Booker.  Gay.  Not a resident of Newark.  Stuff a lockstep campaign or party wouldn't allow.
New Jersey politics at it's finest.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
