Earlier poll
Rutgers-Eagleton9/3 - 9/9462 LV6429Booker +35

The final word pre-election was from Kevin Mooney at The American Spectator who speculated on a shock Tea Party upset-but the key points were the lack of GOP Establishment support for Lonegan
and the 12 to 1 finance deficit versus the Dem's machine.

The last minute summing up by AP a Yahoo: "Booker's campaign path bumpier than anticipated"

With this telling remark; "For most of the campaign, Lonegan has gotten little help from Republicans outside the state.In an 11th hour push for Lonegan, tea party leaders have begun coordinating phone banks and a get-out-the-vote effort. The nation's largest tea party political action committee — the Tea Party Express — brought former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in to campaign for the GOP nominee last weekend."

Partisan comments at National Review

Lonegan will have a right to be mad at Gov. Chris Christie if he loses, as the special election timing will have hurt him and he could probably win riding some of the Governor's coattails if the election were held on Election Day.

      Lonegan couldn't win riding on Christ's coattails.

          Unless he's seriously considering a run for the presidency as a Republican, in which case he's an absolute fool. He could not have undermined any slim chance the Republicans might have had of picking up this seat any worse - first with his appointment of a place-holder and then with his selfish election tactics - if he'd been specifically trying to be sure it went Dem. Sure, it was going blue no matter what,
