Poll: Majority of New Jersey Voters Think Menendez Should Resign

Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez should resign, New Jersey voters say in a new Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.
Fifty-two percent of those surveyed say the indicted senator should resign his post, and 54 percent responded that he is not honest or trustworthy. The numbers break down along partisan lines, with more Republicans calling for his departure than any other subset.
Menendez was indicted on federal corruption charges on April 1, accused of using his position as a senator to improve the business interests of an alleged friend and political supporter in Florida, Salomon Melgen, in exchange for campaign donations, private flights and other gifts. Menendez pleaded not guilty to all charges on April 2.
