Poll: Tillis among the least popular incumbent senators in DC

The Morning Consult has another poll.  They’ve done this for all 50 governors.  Now, they’re doing it for all 100 US senators.  According to a poll of 255,120 registered voters in 50 states from July 1 to Sept. 30, here is what we know: 

  • Bernie Sanders and Pat Leahy, both Vermont commies, have the highest approval ratings of ANY sitting US senator.
  • Least popular?  Robert Menendez,(D-NJ), currently on trial for corruption charges.  Mitch McConnell’s approval is just one point higher than Menendez’s rating.  Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican retiring this year, is one point higher than McConnell.
  • Thom Tillis has a 38 percent approval rating.  There are only FOUR US senators rated worse than he is.  Of those, only TWO – Flake and McConnell — are Republicans.
  • Tillis’s other numbers look worse.  Thirty-one percent disapprove of him.  Thirty percent have no opinion on him (after THREE YEARS in office).
  • Richard Burr is sitting a little prettier at 42 percent approval.  Thirty-two percent disapprove and 27 percent (after THIRTEEN YEARS in office) have no opinion.
  • The Republicans doing best with their states’ voters?  Susan Collins of Maine, John Hoeven of North Dakota, and John Thune of South Dakota.

    Not a surprising poll for anyone ever having to deal with Tillis’ staff.

      Agree. And we all know that staff are just a reflection of the boss. Tillis is no friend of voters who are not lining his campaign coffers or running around the State attacking those who oppose him.

    Let’s see, conservatives don’t like him, D’s don’t like him. Who’s left? The bootlickers, special interest lobbyists and enablers. Oh, and let’s not forget the illegals he’s constantly fighting so hard for.

    It’s like he is totally ignoring the voters who put him in, that we voters are beneath him and not worthy to be listened to,he had better relish his next 3 yrs there won’t be anymore.

    Thom is banking on us all forgetting the bad things when it is time for him to run again. Besides, he is doing such cute things. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/10/31/sen-thom-tillis-dog-costume-party-serves-senate-dose-bipawtisanship/819538001/

      Being bisexual means you cannot figure out if you are a man or a woman. Being bipartisan means you cannot figure out if you are a Democrat or a Republican.

      Senator Jesse Helms got it right with his oft repeated comment that “the only things you find in the middle of the road are yellow stripes and dead skunks”. Tillis is exhibiting the first one already, and after next election, he will exhibit the second.
