As an academic survey research center, we tend to operate on a September to June schedule, with fewer things going on in July and August. But now that September is well underway, we are also. Later this week we will release our first polling of the post-Labor Day election environment, both for the U.S. Senate special election in October and the Nov. Governor’s race. As always, we not only ask the “usual” head-to-head questions, but we try to drill down further to understand what New Jerseyans are thinking about the elections and other important issues facing the state. It should be an interesting fall, so stay tuned!
