Cory Booker’s presidential campaign is not running strong.
At this point, he might actually be running for vice president but who is going to pick him for that if he can’t even deliver his home state of New Jersey?
He’s currently polling in fourth place there, according to one new poll.
Poll: Cory Booker in Fourth Place in Home State of New Jersey
A poll released Thursday from the Monmouth University Polling Institute revealed that Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is in fourth place in his home state of New Jersey in the race for president.
According to the survey, which received responses from 713 New Jersey adults, Booker received nine percent support from New Jersey residents in the poll for president, trailing former Vice President Joe Biden (26 percent), Democrat Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (20 percent), and independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (18 percent). Democrat California Sen. Kamala Harris, who received six percent support from New Jersey residents and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who received six percent support, are the only other candidates who garnered more than two percent support.
The poll indicates that 45 percent of New Jersey residents approve of Booker’s performance as a United States senator, and 37 percent disapprove. Eighteen percent have no opinion of his performance.
That is not good news for Mr. Booker.

Booker’s NJ rating dips — and few here want him to be president
U.S. Sen. Cory Booker remains New Jersey’s most popular statewide elected official — although only barely, as his job approval ratings fade as he campaigns for a promotion to president, according to a Monmouth University poll.
Booker’s presidential campaign hasn’t caught fire in his home state, the poll found. Just 9% of Democrats in the state say he’s their preferred candidate for the Oval Office, and only 29% percent of residents say he would make a good president.
“Right now, Cory Booker continues to have positive approval ratings,” said poll director Patrick Murray. “They’re just not as positive as they used to be before he was running for president.”
How much longer will he last in this race?
