    I suspect Lieberman's presence on the Gore ticket was responsible for Gore doing better than Obama in New Jersey, much like Gore's 67% victory in the old NY-09 compared to Obama's 55% win.

      Gore did very well in Monmouth and Ocean counties (I believe he actually won Monmouth), both of which have since trended hard right. Obama, meanwhile, won Somerset County (which Gore lost), reflecting the growth of Indian-American and other favorable voters in the last decade. New Jersey has both R-trending and D-trending areas.
