The Democrats are indeed in much better shape to win the Senate election with former Senator Frank Lautenberg having replaced current Senator Bob Torricelli on the ticket. A Star Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers poll concluded Sunday night shows Lautenberg leading Republican Douglas Forester by a margin of 6 percentage points among potential voters, 46 to 40, with the remainder undecided. This is quite a reversal from two weeks ago when Forester held a 13 percentage point lead over Torricelli.
