Newark Mayor Cory Booker has strong support from New Jersey voters if he decides to run for Senate in 2014, according to a survey from Public Policy Polling.

Even if incumbent Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg doesn’t step down, he trails Booker 59 percent to 22 percent among Democratic voters. Only 36 percent of them want Lautenberg to run again, while 45 percent think he should call it quits.

If Lautenberg does retire, Booker leads potential Democratic competitors and current congressmen Rob Andrews and Frank Pallone. Booker has 48 percent support, Andrews 17 percent, and Pallone 13 percent.

In a general election match-up with potential Republican opponent Lieut. Gov. Kim Guadagno, Booker leads 52 to 29 percent. That exceeds Lautenberg’s 48 to 33 percent advantage over her.

A total of 48 percent of New Jersey voters have a favorable opinion of Booker, while only 20 percent have a negative one. Among independents, he has a 45 percent favorable rating and 21 percent unfavorable rating.

Booker fared much worse in two polls released this week measuring his chances for governor against incumbent Republican Chris Christie. A Rutgers University survey of New Jersey voters showed Christie with 53 percent support and the Newark Mayor with 34 percent.
