“And voters are ready to break the cycle of flooding and recovery by having the government buy flood-prone properties and giving them back to Mother Nature.” Sen. Menendez Approval

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez’ job approval rating has bounced back to 40 – 37 percent from a negative 36 – 41 percent approval rating in a February 20 Quinnipiac University poll. The negative rating, in the wake of allegations of impropriety, marked a 15-point drop from a 51 – 33 percent approval January 23.

New Jersey voters are divided 35 – 36 percent, with 29 percent undecided, on whether Sen. Menendez is honest and trustworthy. Last month, voters said 44 – 28 percent that he is not honest and trustworthy.

Voters say 40 – 35 percent, with 25 percent undecided, that they are satisfied with the way Menendez is handling this matter. The controversy is worth investigation, 53 percent of voters say, while 30 percent say it is politically motivated.
