A new survey just revealed America’s most, and least, liked senators with a few surprises.
Leading the pack of the loathed is Kentucky senator, and lukewarm Republican, Mitch McConnell.
In fact, out of the entire Senate, McConnell, who serves as majority leader, is the only one who is in the red with his voters, according to the survey conducted by the Morning Consult.
But there is some good news for the Kentucky senator.
He’s actually doing better than he had in the poll conducted prior to the 2016 election where had a 51 percent disapproval rating.
Taking the checkered flag for most approved of senator is Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders. Proving that promising free things you don’t deliver on is good politics.
The Democrat presidential also-ran nabbed a 75 percent approval rating in the liberal state of Vermont.
The most popular Republican was Wyoming’s John Barrasso who sported a 69 percent approval rating, while the least popular Democrat Claire McCaskill of Missouri, came in with a 39 percent disapproval ranking.
Of note, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio gained 10 points since the last poll. He was followed by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul who rose five points, Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey who climbed three points and Arizona Sen. John McCain who moved up two points.
