Garden State Hates Lautenberg

Our Senior U.S Senator, Frank R. Lautenberg, has the second lowest approval rating in the U.S Senate at 40%. His disapproval rating is 2nd highest, giving him a net job approval rating of - 4%.

What has Lautenberg done to gain this sort of negative attention? Nothing. He and Corzine delivered a bunch of transportation pork last summer, and he even introduced an amendment to deliver extra highway funds to states without universal helmet laws.

One thing is for sure: if Lautenberg doesn't impress you with his record then he won't sway you with his speaking skills. He goes off on tangeants and never seems to get to the point.

At the other end of the political spectrum is a man who bested Lautenberg's disapproval rating: Conrad Burns. 51% of the Montana population disapproves of Burn's job in the Senate. Unfortunately Jack Abramoff can't bail him out this time.

Lautenberg's approval rating was 44%, disapproval at 34%, as of yesterday's Quinnipiac poll. As mistifying as a low approval rating for Lautenberg is, I don't think it bothers him. He turned 82 last week, and he's not running again.
