(Ridgewood, NJ): A poll from Public Policy Polling released Tuesday July 19, 2011, shows New Jerseyans are overall strongly dissatisfied with how Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) is representing the Garden State. The poll finds Menendez "with an approval rating mired in the 30s.”
Conservative Republican U.S. Senate candidate from New Jersey Ian Linker spoke candidly about what the recent poll means for him and New Jersey in a statement released Thursday:
"Menendez's high disapproval numbers in this recent poll are a manifestation of the complaints I hear every day from New Jerseyans. Voters are disgusted with Menendez's job killing tax and spend agenda, his willingness to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, and his overall ineffective representation of the people of New Jersey. The end of Bob Menendez's Senate career will not come soon enough."
Linker continued, "In 2012, the people of the Garden State have a real choice: principled solutions that will restore America's greatness or more of the same failed liberal policies that pile up mountains of debt and kick our problems down the road."
