Poll: Mendendez Has Narrow Lead In U-S Senate Race

May 25, 2018

The election for a U-S Senate seat from New Jersey could be a close contest.

A Fairleigh Dickinson University poll of registered voters shows incumbent Democrat Bob Menendez with only a four-point lead over Republican candidate Bob Hugin.

Poll director Krista Jenkins says the Senate Ethics Committee’s admonishment of Menendez for taking gifts from a wealthy doctor is weighing on his re-election efforts even though he was not convicted when put on trial for corruption.

A Fairleigh Dickinson University poll finds a majority of New Jersey residents believe opioid addicts suffer from a treatable disease rather than a lack of self-control.

Only 20 percent of New Jersey adults surveyed say they’d oppose having a treatment center in their community for those addicted to painkillers while 72 percent would support it.

Fairleigh Dickinson pharmacy practice professor Anastasia Rivkin says that’s a shift in public perception.
