A CBS News poll released Sunday has President Donald Trump’s New Jersey approval rating at an upside-down 43%-57%.
Just 13% of New Jersey likely voters say they’ll vote in the mid-term election mainly because of Trump.
34% of New Jerseyans want a Senator who tries to oppose Trump as much as they can, and another 23% want a U.S. Senator who is progressive but tries to work with Trump at times. 19% want a conservative Senator who is at times independent of Trump. And 24% of New Jerseyans are looking for a Senator who will support Trump as much as he can.
Nearly half of New Jersey likely voters (46%) want Democrats to gain control of the United States Senate, while 32% want Republicans to keep their majority. A little more than two out of ten (22%) of New Jersey voters say their vote for the Senate in not about which party controls the Senate.”
The same poll has incumbent Bob Menendez with a 49%-39% lead in the race for U.S. Senate against Republican Bob Hugin.
