The Most And Least Popular U.S. Senators

Tyler Durden's picture

According to a new poll by Morning Consult, the most popular senator in the U.S. is independent and once presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

As Statista's Martin Armstrong points out, voters in his state of Vermont have given him a net approval rating of 54 percent - 75 percent saying they approve of the job he is doing, 21 percent saying they disapprove.

At the other end of the scale is Republican Jeff Flake, who with 37 percent approval and 45 percent disapproval is sitting on a minus 8 percent net rate in Arizona.

The Grand Canyon State is generally unhappy with its Senators - John McCain has a net rating of minus 4 percent.

Well, it's only based on the state that elected them, and some states are simply stupid, on either the D or R front.  AZ, CA, NY, SC, and VT come to mind.

McCain is the best senator in America.

Can we get them to field the targets on my kind of rifle range?

It would be fun to see them dancing.

Somebody has the goods on McCain.

There is no way someone so widely despised as he would have lasted this long unless he is serving some form of social decay.

Now that you mention that...

Keep up the good work boys.

There is a big movement to get rid of McCain lite (Flake) next election.

McCain will term out or full on dimensia will take its course (most likely).

The North Viet-Namese from the late 1960's believed McCain lazy and unmotivated.

He was always sunning himself and drunk,  while the rest of the US POW's suffered in silence.

The VC understood he was a cowardly piece of shit.

Yes, but..but..but...McCain is a true American hero...

even though some of us like heroes that do not get cought.

Rubbish, it is well known that Ted Cruz is the most hated senator.

Either of the CT ones are as bilious and that old atrophied toad.

Because he does the job he was elected to do.

Not in his district. He is well liked by a majority of his constituents.  This survey does not take into account the opinion of the rest of the country.

If humans were even slightly sane, McCain and Graham would have -100% ratings.

I know not a single person that voted for McCain this past election, and I'm in AZ and the vast majority of people I know are republicans. I seriously wonder if his election wasn't rigged that last two times. He's been censured by both his local and state level republican parties, for god's sake. He outspent his primary challenger six to one with most of the money coming from the national party and out of state. To say he's hated here by most is an understatement.

Flake was a trojan horse, when he was a rep he voted pretty conservative/libertarian as is consistent with the politics of his district, then he went off the reservation, I'm guessing whatever it is they do to control senators was done with him.

Bigly's picture

Count on it.

Your state is not completely overrun by retards ....yet.

Occam's Razor. Your elections are rigged. There is no other explanation as logical as this one. Plus this last election showed how hillary stole states from bernie then stole a few from trump with the dead and illegals, etc. 

Easy peasy.

As a fellow Arizonan I agree.  The Maricopa Mafia must be getting top many goodies to let go of McCain.  McCain was ok in the past, but he is three terms beyond when he should have retired.  Don't even get me started on smiley boy Flake.

Metastatic Debt's picture

Unfortunately McCain got voted in to block an illegal supporting Democrat. Exchanging time for keeping more illegal doo-gooders from the Senate.

Flake obviously got signed onto the McCain pay-to-play plan, hence the wild change in attitude. Dr Kelly Ward will be a strong contender.

I'd advise not playing the game of politics! I WAS one of the 1K Precinct Committeemen for the GOP in AZ who voted, both times, to censure Hanoi John. It did no good, that "man" knows no shame.

If voting made any difference, it'd be illegal!

A stellar example of all that is wrong in politics!

Deep State support...something former AZ. Gov. Evan Mecham never had...

Haven't seen your posts for a while. Always appreciate your POV.

This can also be interpreted as the states with the most delusional sheeple.

More likely ballot box stuffing and other electoral fraud.

DirtySanchez's picture

I'd like to take a flame thrower and nail gun to about 95 of those mother fuckers.

Then I'd round up their despicable, horrible, scumbag, spawn, and personally push each one off of a cliff.

Then I'd go celebrate freedom.

You are a real moron if you think there are 5 "good" ones in the senate. That's how I knew Sessions wasn't going to do anything substantial. If he wasn't a crook, he wouldn't have been allowed in the Senate in the first place. Probably a pederast like a lot of them.

Term limit these power hungry, money hungry whores; and their whore retard cousins in the house of representatives.

Any violation of any law should result in immediate death sentence.

Wildly unpopular and yet they keep getting re-elected.

Because the alternatives are usually worse, sadly.

Lil' Marco is hated here in Florida. He was going to leave politics, but the establishment needed him, so he stayed on. Too bad for us. He is an apprentice under Lindsay Graham and John McCain. I remember when he was first running for office some years back, he ran as a Tea Party affiliate. No sooner than he was elected and sworn in, he forgot all about us, and wouldn't even take our calls. It was like the guy who woos the girl, and promises her the moon, then as soon as he gets the pussy, he is done with her. Won't even return her calls days later. Today he is at the forefront of the politicians trying their best to obstruct Trump. In fact, you would think he was a closet democrat.

I have a dream.  My dream is simple, yet elegant.  If involves a mysterious and unpredictable sink hole forming under the entire Washington DC area.  It emerges from the depths, swallows everything above it (preferably during a State of the Union address), and disappears from sight. 

It's kind of like the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, where the demons eviscerate every evil human in gloriously painful ways, cleanse the landscape, and the rest of us are left to ourselves.  So simple, yet blissful in its conception.

A guy can dream, can't he?

Rand Paul is the only senator the nation has

meditate_vigorously's picture

He sure has you fooled. He is much a criminal as the other 99.

RussianSniper's picture

Trump is actually interested in trading some of these treasonous, self serving, scum bag US representatives, to Isis,  for land, some jack asses, and the promise of the evil empire to stay the fuck out of their lives.

Putin supports!

Sky flyer's picture

I generally agree with Rand Paul on most issues. I'm waiting for them to take control of him as they do most senators..

Patrick Leahey is still the biggest fucking dick of all of them. No way that ass hole has a 41% approval rating. The most obstructionist partisan prick on the entire judiciary committee.

Notice Bernie and him are rated high and it's Vermont..Lots of woods and heroin I guess..

He missed too many field goals as well.
