Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 14 was one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two are Districts 2 and 38. Districts 2 and 38 may lean more Republican after 2011 redistricting, and District 14 may still favor Democrats. As evidence, they cite a drop in registered Democrats in Districts 2 and 38, and only a small decrease in registered Democrats in District 14. History has shown, argues APP, that districts where Democrats hold less than a 10,000 registered voter advantage typically favor the GOP. The Democratic registration advantage in District 14 was roughly 21,000, (down from 25,000).[3]
