McConnell is Least Popular Senator in the Country


A new Public Policy Polling survey in Kentucky finds Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) with a lowly 37% to 55% approval rating, the worst favorable/unfavorable numbers of any senator the country.

Nonetheless, he leads all of the Democrats tested against him in a 2014 race: Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson (D), Attorney General Jack Conway (D), and actress Ashley Judd all trail McConnell by four points, 47% to 43%.

"The reason McConnell does decently well in the head to head match ups despite his poor approval numbers is that even though a lot of Republicans dislike him, most of them would still vote for him in a general election before they would support a Democrat."

7. I have doubts about a young, liberal-leaning newcomer unseating McConnell.

And, I don't know -- but maybe McC has brought home the pork for KY?

I'd love to see her in office, though!

5. Didn't see Governor Beshear on the list

I believe he can beat McConnell this time around, and Jerry Abramson can take over as Governor
