A new Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released on Thursday suggests that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is the “least popular senator in the country.” The results shouldn’t be that shocking as McCain has a low approval rating among both Republicans and Democrats.
The Republican has an approval rating of just 30 percent among all Arizona voters while 44 percent of respondents also disapprove of his job performance and 16 percent aren’t sure, according to the poll by the left-leaning PPP.
Among fellow Republicans, McCain has only a 35 percent positive approval rating and a 55 percent disapproval rating.
McCain isn’t up for reelection until 2016, but the latest numbers could indicate that his time as a Republican U.S. senator could be coming to an end. He has been serving in U.S. Congress since 1982, starting in the House of Representatives. He was elected to the Senate in 1986.
“PPP conducted the poll from February 28 to March 2 among 870 registered Arizona voters,” HuffPost notes.
