A new Quinnipiac University survey released this morning shows more New Jersey voters give their junior U.S. Senator high marks.

Today, Garden State voters approve 44 to 32 percent margin of the job U.S. Senator Bob Menendez is doing, up from 40 to 37 percent in March and a negative 36 to 41 percent in February in the wake of allegations of of using his power to help a campaign donor.  Voters say 39 to 32 percent that Menendez is honest and trustworthy, also continuing an upward climb.

“Has Sen. Robert Menendez weathered all those bad headlines?” asked Mickey Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “His job approval is inching up and, although they want an investigation, a third of New Jerseyans think the stuff was politically motivated.”

Good news for the State’s senior U.S. Senator too. Frank Lautenberg who is retiring after this term gets a 47 to 31 percent approval rating.

From April 19 – 22, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,112 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers called land lines and cell phones.
