Mitch McConnell


Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) just got some very bad news in the form of his latest polling.

McConnell, the Republican Minority Leader in the Senate, is now polling at only 33 percent approval.

Trump, on the other hand, is polling at 76 percent approval among Republicans.

Time to Go, Mitch

McConnell was never really nationally popular among Republicans, but those folks in Kentucky just love him.

The man has convincingly won every election since he first took the seat in 1985.

While those struggles were apparent, McConnell really fell into it when Donald Trump was in office.

The two of them had a falling out and McConnell has never recovered.

The hope with Trump running for president was that McConnell would step down from leadership and retire, but that is not in his plans.

McConnell has announced that after the current session ends, he will step down from leadership to allow a new leader to be elected.

He will not, however, leave office early.

McConnell recently stated, “I’m not leaving the Senate.

“I’m particularly involved in actually fighting back against the isolationist movement in my own party. …And the symbol of that lately is, ‘Are we gonna help Ukraine or not?’”

We can only hope the next class of Senators take a look at past requests by conservatives and do not elect one of McConnell’s top lieutenants as his replacement. Currently, McConnell’s top allies in the Senate are the ones that have thrown their hats into the ring, but I am sure we will see more interest in the position as the time to elect a new Senate leader arrives.

Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), who has a great relationship with Trump, ran against McConnell last time, and we would love to see him run again so Trump has an ally in leadership, not an enemy.
