Poll: John McCain Least Popular Senator In Country

| by Emily Smith

A new Public Policy Polling survey revealed Thursday that Sen. John McCain is the least popular senator in the country, with an approval rating of only 30 percent among Arizona voters.

McCain scored low with both Republicans and Democrats.

Some 44 percent of Arizona voters disapprove of McCain’s job performance and 16 percent aren’t sure, according to the left-leaning poll.

Among fellow Republicans, McCain has only a 35 percent approval rating. Among Democrats, his approval rating is only 29 percent.

Though the Republican senator isn’t up for reelection until 2016, the poll suggests his time as a congressman is up. While he hasn't announced another run, McCain said he is still considering reelection.

McCain has served in the U.S. Congress since 1982. He was elected to the Senate in 1986.

PPP conducted the poll among 870 registered Arizona voters.
