By Brent Johnson, NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
TRENTON — A new poll shows a majority of New Jersey voters approve of increasing the state’s minimum wage, legalizing marijuana and requiring background checks for all gun buyers.
The Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday found 74 percent of voters approved hiking the sate’s $8.44 an hour minimum wage, while 24 percent disapprove. That includes a 50 to 46 percent approval rate from Republicans.
