Morning Consult has a poll out of all 50 states and the approval ratings of the US Senators serving there. Bernie Sanders is the most popular US Senator in a home state with an 80 percent approval rate, which explains his primary win there.
Here in New Jersey both Bob Menendez and Cory Booker have upside up ratings, with Menendez 10 points positives over negatives and Booker a pretty awesome 28 points positives over negatives. Menendez only has a 42 percent approval rating (32% disapprove), with Booker riding high at 52 percent (24% disapprove). Both are at about 25% for those without an opinion.
Let’s have some fun — what do you think of these results, and why do you think Booker is so much more popular than Bob?
