According to a new poll published by Public Policy Polling, Arizona Senator John McCain is the least popular Senator in America. Here is their brutal analysis:
PPP’s newest Arizona poll finds that John McCain is unpopular with Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike and has now become the least popular Senator in the country. Only 30% of Arizonans approve of the job McCain is doing to 54% who disapprove. There isn’t much variability in his numbers by party- he’s at 35/55 with Republicans, 29/53 with Democrats, and 25/55 with independents.
McCain trails in hypothetical general election match ups with both 2012 nominee Richard Carmona (41/35) and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (42/35). He would lead though in a match-up with former Governor Janet Napolitano, 44/36. This has the potential to be an interesting one in 2016.
According to the Universal Free Press:
Republicans can’t stand McCain and Democrats don’t trust him. It’s no wonder McCain couldn’t beat Obama: He has no principles. People don’t want a wishy-washy moderate… they want to see a stark contrast in a general election so that we have a true conservative versus a true liberal. McCain hardly provided that.
Notice how Democrats never care to put up a “moderate” candidate like Republicans always seem to feel the need to do. John Kerry and Barack Obama were some of the most left-wing candidates to run for president in history. Why don’t we try nominating a conservative for a change, so voters can see what the Republican Party is really about.
These polling numbers come as no surprise to most Arizonans. We figured out McCain long ago, in spite of the fawning of the malpracticing media.
