A recent CBS poll shows Cory Booker with a 46% to 32% lead on Jeff Bell. Another 5% are leaning towards both candidates. The poll surveyed 2239 likely voters. Whites respondents were split with 39% favoring Bell and 37% favoring Booker. The black respondents were unaminous. Of the 119 black respondents 104 said they supported Booker and another 8 said they were leaning towards Booker and 7 said they were not sure. ZERO said they supported Bell with not even a single black respondent saying they were leaning towards Bell. The poll takers were not able to get enough blacks to answer the polls so they weighted the 119 responses to equal 281. Hispanics and other minorities were also weighted to reflect much higher numbers than actually responded. The actual poll results were 46.2% for booker and 41.2 for Bell. If you subtract those who only said they were leaning it's 41.2% for Booker and 36.2% for Bell.

As of June 30, Booker has about 3.5 million cash on hand and Bell has close to 0
