Sanders Is Most Popular Senator, According to Constituent Poll
A new Morning Consult poll, tasked with finding the most popular senators, concluded that Bernie Sanders leads the constituent approval ratings.
The Hill reports:
Eighty percent of Vermont voters approve of Sanders, while just 17 percent disapprove. The Democratic presidential hopeful was also at the top of the list the last time such a poll was released, in November 2015.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) follows closely behind, with 79 percent approval and 13 percent disapproval.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) keeps his spot as the least popular senator, with just 40 percent of Kentucky voters saying they approve, while 49 percent disapprove.
Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is near the middle of the pack, with 55 percent approval and 30 percent disapproval.
And former presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) saw his approval rating drop 5 points and his disapproval shoot up 8 points since November. Rubio dropped his presidential bid in March.
The poll surveyed 62,000 registered voters from Jan. 8 to April 17.
