It’s good news for New Jersey’s two United States Senators: both have positive job approval ratings, according to today’s Quinnipiac University poll. Frank Lautenberg is at 45%-38%, and Bob Menendez is at 42%-30% — his highest mark since taking office in January 2006. Menendez is up for re-election in 2012 and Lautenberg in 2014.
The New Jersey Legislature has an upside-down 30%-54% approval rating. They always do, despite the high percentage of incumbents who win re-election with ease every two years.
