More bad news for Mitch McConnell.
According to a new poll, Mitch McConnell ranked dead last among Republicans in terms of popularity.
Even at a time of heightened political polarization, Republicans and Democrats can agree on one thing: They generally don’t like Mitch McConnell very much.
The 79-year-old Senate Republican leader, long known as the “Grim Reaper” for killing off numerous Democratic initiatives, ranked dead last among fellow Republicans in an Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters.
All told, 57% of Americans expressed an unfavorable view of McConnell, including 29% who had a “very” unfavorable view of the Kentucky Republican. That included 49% of Republicans and 67% of Democrats, who were among 1,005 U.S. adults polled online March 3-4.
This poll found that Trump was the most popular Republican.
The GOP establishment doesn’t have any support among everyday voters.
Why does this matter?
The primaries are going to be a battle between McConnell and Trump. Although they may line up with some candidates Trump has made it clear he will not back RINOs. Who wins this battle is going to come down to who is more popular. At this point, Trump is far more popular than McConnell. It is pretty simple. Whoever, Trump endorses will win the primary battle.
