The five least popular senators, according to a Morning Consult poll, have all clashed with President Trump.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., leads the list with a 30 percent approval rating while a staggering 56 percent disapprove. Frequent Trump foil Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., comes next at 30 percent approval and 51 percent disapproval.
Perhaps more surprisingly, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has a 42 percent approval rating while 46 percent of Arizonans disapprove of his job performance. The next two are incumbents Trump and the GOP are actively targeting for defeat in November. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., stands at 40 percent approval and 44 percent disapproval. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., is deadlocked at 44 percent apiece… Reports the Washington Examiner
