In 2019, it’s possible that New Jersey may have no Republican congressmen– at least according to a generic poll conducted by Monmouth University. This showed that a generic Democrat was preferred to a generic Republican candidate by at least 53% of the citizenry surveyed.

It’s no secret that NJ Republican congressmen have been fighting an uphill battle, and two of them (Frank LoBiondo, 2nd District and Rodney Frelinghuysen, 11th District) have already announced their retirements. However, this now calls into question districts previously thought to be safe, such as Chris Smith’s third district.

National Republican leadership has decried the poll as wildly inaccurate, banking on the old “I hate Congress but love my congressman” approach to voting that they feel voters will take. However, New Jersey has been a reliable Democratic state for most of recent memory, and the resurgence of anti-Trump energy could very well provide the final impetus for change.
