A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll (Nov. 15-27; 600 adults; +/- 4.3%) found that 20 percent view Sen. Bob Menendez (D) favorably, while 33 percent viewed him unfavorably. Of those surveyed, “more New Jersey residents disapprove than approve of his job performance (36 percent to 29 percent).” Forty-nine percent said that Menendez should resign.

“He remains popular with his Democratic base, however. Among those Democrats and independents who lean Democratic who report having voted in the recent gubernatorial election, more approve than disapprove of Menendez by a margin of 42 percent to 28 percent, and more have a favorable than an unfavorable opinion of him (29 percent to 22 percent).” (release)
