It may be early, but U.S. Senator Robert Menendez is starting out with a big lead. A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll shows that Menendez is up 44 to 22 percent over Republican state Sen. Joseph Kyrillos. Kyrillos is mainly fighting the problem of not being well known. The poll says nearly four in five people have no idea who Kyrillos is or have no opinion of him. Menendez is up for reelection this year.
