John McCain: ‘The least popular Senator in the United States’, ‘Vulnerable’

Clearly not a title any US Senator wants to hold, bout someone has to.

According to a new Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll yesterday,  it 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, suggesting he could be vulnerable to challenges in both the primary and general elections the next time he’s up.

Concerning his vulnerability, PPP notes 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.

A McCain spokesperson responded to the poll saying, “This poll was conducted by a firm with well-known ties to the Democratic Party. Its results are strongly contradicted by recent public and private polling showing Senator McCain in solid position, and he’s confident that he has earned the respect and confidence of the people of Arizona.”
