Republican Steve Lonegan has closed to within 6 points of Newark Mayor Cory Booker in the New Jersey Senate race, according to a new poll.

Booker's once-commanding lead over the former mayor of Bogota is all but gone, internal polling conducted for Lonegan's campaign shows.

Democrat Booker's lead has narrowed from 48 percent to 42 percent, according to the results obtained by National Review Online.

"Booker is 37-27 net favorable, a major shift from the 42-18 numbers he held two weeks ago," says a memo from the pollsters, National Review Online reports. The pollsters noted, however, that the 44-year-old Democrat is "still getting a significant share of the suburban and Republican vote."

Polls conducted by political campaigns generally are more favorable to their candidates than are independent surveys, according to a review of polling by The New York Times.

A Monmouth University poll released Tuesday found Booker's lead had narrowed by 3 points since August, standing at 53 percent to 40 percent.

That virtually mirrored a Quinnipiac University poll from last week, which put Booker ahead by 53 percent to 41 percent.
