Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is continuing his hot streak of being the most hated figure in American politics, by his own voter base. According to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports, Democrat Party voters hold a more favorable view of the America Last McConnell than Republican voters do.

The survey compared how voters from both parties view President Donald Trump, new House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Mitch McConnell.

Not surprisingly, Trump remains the most popular figure in American politics. He has a 52% favorability rating among all voters. He has a 77% favorability rating among Republicans, including 31% who view him “very favorably.”

Mitch McConnell’s numbers are still a hot dumpster fire, however. 60% of voters overall hold an unfavorable view of China Mitch. Only 32% of Republican voters hold a favorable view of him. Only 9% of voters view McConnell “very favorably.” And here’s the really hilarious part: 35% of Democrat voters view McConnell favorably.

Pro Tip: When the opposition party likes you more than your own party, you’re probably doing something wrong.

Here’s the big surprise from the poll. Kevin McCarthy is viewed favorably by 71% of Republican voters. Following the concessions that McCarthy made during 15 rounds of voting for the House Speaker back in January, and McCarthy keeping those promises so far, he’s enjoying the best popularity numbers of his political career.

McCarthy appointed committees to investigate the weaponization of the federal government against innocent Americans, and to probe the Biden crime family’s bribes from Communist China. He also released the January 6 footage to Tucker Carlson and will be releasing all of it to the public, so everyone can finally see that it was a mostly peaceful protest with undercover feds breaking stuff and punching cops.

As for Mitch McConnell, the only good news from this poll is that he’s still slightly more popular than Kamala Harris.
