Strategic Vision is a Republican polling firm, and I recall that in 2006 their polls usually showed Republicans doing better than other polls did. If even they say Obama has a nine-point lead in New Jersey, then the Rasmussen poll showing the state rather close looks like an aberration.

As to race for President, Obama +9 is a solid number. DEM has not lost NJ since Bush I in 1988 and Obama can not afford to lose a Kerry state.
As to Senate seat, this poll confirms NJ race as likely DEM.
