Poll: McConnell Most Unpopular Senator, Kyrsten Sinema is 2nd

January 11, 2023

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is the nation’s most unpopular senator, followed by Democrat defector Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), a Wednesday Morning Consult poll found.

Only 29 percent of registered voters approved of McConnell, while 64 percent disapproved. Under McConnell’s GOP leadership, the national debt has risen by nearly $20 trillion, illegal immigration has continued, and real wages for American workers have not increased. Obamacare was enacted in 2010. Big banks were bailed out in 2008, and social media companies have silenced individuals without repercussions. In 2022, McConnell has also approved $100 billion in aid for Ukraine.

The second least-liked senator was Sinema, who shed her Democrat party affiliation in December. Only 37 percent approved of Sinema. Forty-eight percent disapproved. She is up for reelection in 2024, which could have driven her to change her party affiliation to independent. Arizona is a purple, swing state.

After Sinema left the party, she was permitted her to flip her affiliation without disciplinary action. Sinema will still caucus with the Democrats and retain her Democrat-designated committee seats.
