Who could have guessed?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ranks as the nation's least popular senator, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The survey, conducted by Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling, showed that more than half — 55 percent — of Kentucky voters disapprove of their senator, while just 37 percent of those surveyed signaled support.

Yet just because people think he sucks, that doesn't mean they want to terminate his suckiness:
But despite his struggles, McConnell is still a favorite for reelection. The five-term senator is favored in hypothetical match-ups against any of the leading contenders in the Democratic field [...]
More than half of voters in Kentucky disapprove and this man is still in office. Better a shitty Republican that continuously works against their best interests than a Democrat working for them:
No matter who ends up as the nominee, however, Democrats will have an uphill climb in replacing McConnell, despite his lagging favorability numbers. Republicans continue to dominate in the state — Mitt Romney won by 23 points there — and voters are likely to favor even an unpopular Republican.
An unpopular Republican is an understatement:
"Both in terms of raw disapproval (55 percent) and net approval (-18) McConnell has the worst numbers of any of his peers, taking that mantle from Nebraska's Ben Nelson [(D-Neb.)]," PPP Director Tom Jensen said in a statement.
So next time you hear McConnell include phrases like "We all know" or "the American people think..." into all of that propaganda he so eloquently delivers, you can take into account that special bond McConnell has with those he supposedly cares so much about.

Please, Kentucky, do the whole country a favor and get rid of this guy.




Do you think Mitch McConnell is an asshole?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
