Despite the facts that U.S. Senator Bob Menendez was indicted by federal prosecutors last month and Chris Christie says he’s in the clear after he wasn’t indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, Menendez has a higher job approval rating the Christie, according to Monmouth University Poll releases.
In a poll release issued this morning, Menendez’s job approval rating is 42% positive to 38% negative and 20% unsure among registered voters.
In a release last week based upon the same 500 person survey, Christie’s approval rating is 35% approve, 56% disapprove, and 9% unsure among voters.
In today’s release about Menendez, most New Jerseyans (60%) think Mendendez is probably guilty of the corruption charges brought against him. Yet, they believe the prosecution is politically motivated (51%) and that he should have an opportunity to stay in office(68%) while he is defending himself against the charges.
