Observant New Jerseyans are aware that there is an election coming up. Actually, with mail-in balloting, the election is already happening. And it will continue to happen until Nov. 3. The presidential race is at the top of the ticket along with a U.S. Senate race, but the outcome of those campaigns is not in serious doubt around these parts. Still, there are other candidates beside Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Cory Booker and Rik Mehta on the ballot. And two of those candidates are contestants in one of the most closely watched congressional races in the country. To top it all off, voters will be deciding whether to allow the creation of an entirely new industry in New Jersey. So there’s a lot going on.
Fortunately, the state is home to one of the most highly regarded election experts in the country: Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. In this election edition of NJBIZ Conversations, Editor Jeff Kanige spoke with Murray about the dreaded undervote on public questions, the status of the presidential campaign and what really worries him right now.
