Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is having a difficult summer. After failing to pass the Obamacare repeal and replace bill, the Kentucky Senator’s poll numbers are plummeting. Surely, heightened friction with the President as of late isn’t helping.
Breitbart News reports:
McConnell’s score is worse than President Donald Trump’s or House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI), according to The Hill.
“Forty-nine percent of voters polled have a negative view of the Senate leader,” The Hill, which was given the poll results, reported.
On the other hand, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have high approval ratings — 79 percent of Republicans have a positive view of the president, with 41 percent favorable and 55 percent unfavorable from the broader survey.
Pence polls at 44 percent positive and 42 percent negative, The Hill reported.
McConnell, who will not have to face reelection until 2020, only has an 18 percent job approval rating in his home state of Kentucky, according to another poll released this week by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling.
“McConnell is the only Republican elected official polled that is not viewed favorably by a majority of his own party,” according to The Hill.
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell’s approval rating has sunk to 18% in HIS HOME STATE Kentucky.
President Trump’s approval rating in the Bluegrass State is at 60%.
This comes after McConnell failed to repeal and replace Obamacare seven months into President Trump’s first term.
The approval rating of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has plummeted to just 18 percent, a survey from Public Policy Polling has found.
The poll, which surveyed 645 Kentucky voters, found that just 18 percent of respondents approved of McConnell’s current performance, compared to 74 percent who disapproved. Seven percent of people said they were not sure.
McConnell, who is the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Kentucky history, having represented the state since 1984, was recently criticized by President Trump for failing to pass the healthcare reform bill through the Senate.
