Hawley's favorability drops in Missouri after riot, but it improves with GOP nationally

Bryan Lowry, The Kansas City Star 13 hrs ago

WASHINGTON — A plurality of Missouri voters disapprove of Republican Sen. Josh Hawley two weeks after the U.S. Capitol riot, according to a new poll.

The Jan. 18 survey of 743 registered voters found that 49% disapprove of Hawley, the state’s junior senator, compared to 36% who approve of his job performance, according to The Morning Consult.

That amounts to a 12-point negative swing in Hawley’s net favorability since the day before the Jan. 6 insurrection. It is also a 17-point shift since the week President Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election— when a plurality of Missouri voters approved of Hawley’s job performance.

Hawley’s office did not respond to a request for comment on the poll.

1. You would think this naked insurrection would hurt the GOP, but it won't.

Their media machine has already erased the treason of just two weeks ago, and is in full attack mode on Democrats.

Nothing has changed.

They can actually storm the US Capitol during sessions, kill a bunch of people, try to overturn our elected government, and not lose a single supporter.
