A poll conducted by a super PAC connected to House Republican leaders shows a statistical tie in the race for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district and in the presidential race.

Freshman Rep. Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) leads Republican David Richter by a 45%-42% margin, according to a Congressional Leadership Fund poll obtained and reviewed by the New Jersey Globe.

The poll shows President Donald Trump with a 49%-46% lead against Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

In 2016, Trump carried the 3rd district by a 51%-45% margin against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Republican poll has Kim’s favorables at 37%-31%.  The largely unknown Richter has favorables of 18%-10%.

The closeness of the race is no surprise in a district Democrats flipped two years ago after the GOP held the seat for a decade.

The poll of 400 likely was conducted by Basswood Research on July 13-15 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.
