(Bridgewater, NJ) New polling shows the race for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District is up for grabs. A recent survey of 600 likely voters conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research shows Congressman Tom Malinowski tied with potential challenger Tom Kean, Jr., 46-46 percent (8 percent undecided) even though the district is rated lean Republican and national polls show significant challenges for Democrats.

Post-redistricting, NJ-07 is one of just 17 districts left in the country where the margin between Biden and Trump was under 5 points, and thus one of the few remaining districts likely to decide the House majority.
“The boundaries changed, but the nature of this race hasn’t. This district is highly competitive just as it was in previous cycles,” said Campaign Manager Stacy Cohen. “In a national environment and redistricting process favorable to Republicans, the race is dead even. Voters know and trust Congressman Malinowski. He shares their values, works hard and delivers for them, and that’s why they’re going to re-elect him.”
