ISSUES IN THE RACE FOR SENATE: National Security and Terrorism Top Voters’ List
Voters say that in this November’s election for United States Senator from New Jersey their choice will be determined more by the candidates’ positions on the issues than the candidates’ personal qualities. And at this early stage of the election, the voters’ issue agenda favors Democratic incumbent Bob Torricelli over his Republican challenger Doug Forrester. According to a new Star-Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers Poll, voters’ top issue concerns in this election include national security and terrorism, health care and prescription drugs, and education.

9/11 AFTER SIX MONTHS Life Has Not Returned To Normal
The terrorist attacks of September 11th are still very much a part of New Jerseyans’ lives after six months. According to a new Star-Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers Poll, some emotions continue to run high, and life has not returned to normal for most. Only about one-third of New Jerseyans feel their lives have returned to normal, while nearly a quarter of them feel life will NEVER return to normal. These feelings are little changed from last October when 25 percent said life had returned to normal, and a similar quarter said life never would.
