A poll conducted by Joel Benenson and released by the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC) today shows U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg with a sizeable lead over challanger U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews.
Matt Miller, spokesman for the DSCC, said the April 1-2 Benenson poll of 500 likely Democratic primary voters gives Lautenberg a 52-21% lead over Andrews.
The poll shows Lautenberg with a 75% job approval rating among Democratic voters, and shows 57% of Democrats voting for Lautenberg and 12% against.
Beneson's poll put Andrews on weaker statewide footing, and shows the south Jersey congressman with a 28% favorable rating among New Jersey Democratic voters.
