A new poll shows that the Republican Senators who are the most critical of President Trump are those that are the least popular among the Republican base.
A new list of approval polls for all 100 U.S. senators released this week seems to indicate that the Republican senators with the lowest popularity among voters at home are those who have been the most vocally critical of President Donald Trump — and who have historically supported amnesty for illegal immigrants.
The least popular GOP senators, according to the series of polls from Morning Consult, were — in this order — Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). McConnell, McCain, and Flake were the three least popular senators overall, regardless of party affiliation.
Nearly half — 48 percent — of voters disapprove of McConnell. Nearly as many voters, 47 percent, disapprove of McCain. Flake has a disapproval rating of 45 percent, while 38 percent of voters disapprove of Graham.
According to Morning Consult, the popularity rankings “are based on more than 140,000 interviews with registered voters nationwide conducted from April 1 through June 18.”
“McConnell, Flake, McCain, and Graham. Hearing those names together takes me — and probably a lot of others — back to 2013,” said Eddie Zipperer, an assistant professor of political science at Georgia Military College.
This is great, let’s hope they all get voted out!
