Menendez Poll Numbers Crater in Wake of Underage Hooker Scandal

Posted by on Feb 21, 2013 at 10:15 am

Naturally the media largely  ignores the underage prostitution angle and claims his freefall in the polls is due his “ethics” problems. Well, we find it unethical to be banging 16-yeqar-old in the Dominican Republic, as we’re sure most people do.

A new poll shows that an ethics controversy involving Sen. Robert Menendez’s relationship with a major contributor may be taking a toll, with only 28 percent of New Jersey voters saying he is “honest and trustworthy.”

The Quinnipiac University Poll also found that Menendez’s overall approval ratings plummeted by 15 percentage points in the last month, amid reports that he sought to help a friend and donor who had given him free flights on a private jet.

We suggest his approval would be even lower if the media actually reported more aggressively on the prostitution angle, but that’ll never happen with the (D) behind his name.

    “honest and trustworthy.”

    What’s wrong with these people? He’s a democrat. From New Jersey. This is his nature. This poll is like watching maggots gag.

    Only 28 percent find him trust worthy? How in the hell did he get re-elected? Oh, yeah he is a democrat and all this was hidden until after he go re-elected.
