I believe you. I've heard all kinds of interesting things from my sister about this.

That’s Presidential politics anyway. Congressional can be different, but gerrymandering is also a factor there. Presidential elections get higher turnout though and are more representative of the overall leanings of a place as a result.
Burlington County is Blue like Camden County, but Camden might be the most solid color of Blue in South Jersey. But, District 3 was won by Andy Kim (D) largely because of Burlington County. A lot of residents in the M towns and 295 towns are Philly, PA suburbs and Mercer County area commuters.

Gloucester and Atlantic appear more like swing (not that their numbers amount to much, nor do counties get to be called swing) but still interesting to look at.

In 2018, Atlantic County supported Hagin over Menendez, but then Menendez was a candidate indicted on corruption (i.e. not a good candidate). in 2016, Atlantic County had higher support for H Clinton over Trump. But I think Jeff Van Drew and Trump will likely still do well this year appealing to voters in the towns from Gloucester to Atlantic along the Black Horse Pike, and western Atlantic to Absecon along the White Horse Pike.

Just stop.


You're wrong about South Jersey being Republican.

It was a great time down the shore during a great time for the United States!


The crowd was polite, peaceful and they didn't trash Wildwood.


I wish the left could be so civilized.

Hopefully there will be someone that I can at least consider voting for. There used to at least be the Pat Paulsen option.

Why do lefties want to bite off their noses to spite their faces?

I lived in South Jersey for over 40 years and my sister is still there. Again, how many years have you lived in South Jersey?

It doesn't matter.

I have family all over South Jersey and I'm close enough to the situation to know this.


Why don't you?
