Republican pollster extraordinaire Adam Geller produced a poll that includes some very encouraging data for CD-6 GOP candidate Anna Little and her supporters.
Ironically, Geller works for the Gooch campaign and is reported to have collected $18,000 in fees according to the latest Gooch FEC filing.
When given a choice between "A Republican Mayor who has lowered spending and property taxes..." and a Democratic incumbent Congressman, the Republican Mayor leads the incumbent Democrat by 5%.
Against "a Republican who made millions on Wall Street and contributed to Democrats..." the incumbent Democrat crushed the Wall Street millionaire 55%-20%.
“We know from countless examples that money is not a message. Candidates with deep pockets don’t necessarily impress voters (just ask Jon Corzine). Voters care about bio; they want to know who the candidate is and what they have done," said Geller in an internal campaign memo obtained by Politickernj.com
Geller produced the poll in February while working for Fair Haven Mayor Mike Halfacre's campaign for congress in the 12th district, the home of Wall Street millionaires Diane and Mickey Gooch.
Highlands Mayor Anna Little is a former Monmouth County Freeholder with a record of reducing spending and taxes.
The 6th district covers portions of Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset and Union counties.

" I read your blog all the time." ~ Chris Christie (April 6, 2009 while a candidate for Governor)
"More Monmouth Musings is a must-read. Art Gallagher skillfully covers local, state and national affairs and his blog is a definite stop on the daily news round up. A respected conservative, Art knows when to question conventional wisdom and his guest commentators provide an array of opinions on everything from the State House to the school board." ~ Senator Joe Kyrillos

"The most influential conservative in Central Jersey and Dean of the N.J. Conservative Blogging Caucus. First site I check every day... after my own!" ~ Matt Rooney, SaveJersey.com
"MMM is a great source of insider gossip and news in the conservative wing of the Republican Party and the Tea Party. I don’t agree with everything I read, but I keep taking a look- it is definitely entertaining. However, MMM would be better and could have far greater credibility if Art Gallagher didn’t display his biases quite so obviously and ran an unbiased forum for discussion. " ~ Mickey Gooch, Mickey Gooch
