Mitch McConnell’s Career Hits Record Low With Falling Approval

( In a Gallup poll released on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is polling 29 points underwater with only 34 percent of respondents approving of the job he is doing.

Gallup’s survey had respondents rate their approval of eleven senior government officials including the four leaders of Congress, Chief Justice John Roberts, members of the Cabinet, Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris.

And Mitch McConnell came in dead last.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had the highest rating of the four Congressional leaders, with 46 percent approving and 49 percent disapproving.

Among Republicans, McCarthy rated the highest level of approval of the eleven officials. Seventy-one percent of Republicans approve of McCarthy, giving him a net approval rating of 48 points.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer came in second among the four leaders, with 44 percent approving, while 53 percent of respondents disapproved.

Broken down by party, Schumer garnered 76 percent approval from Democrats, 40 percent from Independents, and 11 percent from Republicans.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi came in third of the four leaders with 40 percent approval and 58 percent disapproval.

Broken down by party, Nancy got 71 percent approval from Democrats, whereas only 38 percent of Independents approve of the old gal. Unsurprisingly, Pelosi only managed to eke out 6 percent approval among Republicans.

But then there’s Mitch McConnell.

In addition to an abysmal 34 percent approval overall, Mitch’s numbers are bad across the board. Only 46 percent of Republicans approve of the job McConnell is doing. But that’s still better than his rating among Independents (35 percent) and Democrats (21 percent).

However, it’s worth noting that a higher percentage of Democrats approve of McConnell than the percentage of Republicans who approve of Pelosi or Schumer.

Part of McConnell’s low approval rating among his party is no doubt due in part to former President Trump’s constant barrage of attacks against the Senate Minority Leader.

Gallup’s survey was conducted from December 1-16 and polled 811 adults across all 50 states and Washington, DC.
