PPP Poll: McCain Least Popular Senator in America
« on: March 06, 2014, 09:34:05 PM »
By Cathy Burke

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, the GOP's standard-bearer in the 2008 presidential race, is now the least popular senator in the country, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday.

 In a survey of his own state voters, only 30 percent said they like the job he's doing; 54 percent disapprove, the poll showed.

 The low polling cuts across party lines, the survey found: he has a 35 percent approval and 55 percent disapproval among Republicans; a 29 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval with Democrats, and a 25 percent approval and 55 percent disapproval among independents.

 The results suggest "he could be vulnerable to challenges in both the primary and general elections the next time he's up," the survey analysis noted.

 McCain has said he's mulling a sixth, six-year term in the Senate. His term is up in 2016, when he'll turn 80.

 When voters were asked their pick in a hypothetical 2016 matchup with former Democratic U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, 35 percent said they'd vote for McCain, while 41 percent would cast their ballot for the Democrat.

 And when he was up against a hypothetical race against former Tucson Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, McCain had 35 percent to Giffords' 42 percent, the survey found.

 McCain did better against former governor and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano; McCain led with 44 percent compared with Napolitano's 36 percent, the poll found.

 States that like their senators the most are Wyoming and Vermont, the results found. The Wire noted PPP's full Senate data set didn't include every senator.

 In the race for the White House, the PPP poll showed Hillary Clinton polled with 44 percent, slightly trailing former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who had 45 percent. But she led with 44 percent up against New Jersey's GOP Gov. Chris Christie, who got 41 percent.

 She also had 46 percent compared to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's 43 percent, and pulled in 47 percent to Fox News commentator Mike Huckabee's 41 percent, the survey found.

 "Arizona could finally reach its long anticipated battleground status this cycle," the analysis stated.

 Ted Cruz led the GOP primary field with 16 percent, over Paul, Christie, Huckabee and Bush, the survey found.

 In his 2008 run for the White House, McCain won his state with 53 percent of the vote; President Obama got 45 percent, The Hill noted. Mitt Romney took Arizona in 2012 with 52 percent; Obama got 45 percent.

 Arizona has not gone for a Democrat in the presidential race since 1996, when Bill Clinton beat out Bob Dole and Ross Perot, the Phoenix Business Journal noted.

 Republicans have carried Arizona in the presidential race every other year since Harry Truman carried the state in 1948, the Journal noted.

Jiminy Cricket!  McCain is less popular than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid?   Oh wait, they didn't include him.

Say what you want to about Reid, but he is loyal to the principles of his party and doesn't backstab them conveniently for personal gain and celebrity status.  McCain is a demented traitor.

McCain won the title for good reason.

Wow, PPP actually got something right.

Demented is a good description of McCain... there is a reason most of us in AZ hate the man.

Thanks to Democrats...... and a LOT of money and fear of opposing him.  What a way to run a country.  If we still elected senators according to the original constitution he would not be elected dog catcher.

I think he has, too. But frankly, he has no life outside DC.  They will have to carry him away feet first.
