Ranking the Senators



In August of this year, Survey USA asked 600 adults in each of the 50 states to rank their senators on an approve/disapprove scale.

Congratulations are in order to Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) who came in 1st of the 100 senators with a 77% approval rating. Rock on, Olympia.

Other Notables:

Barack Obama (D-IL) came in third, John McCain (R-AZ) was tied for 4th, and Jospeh Lieberman (D-CT) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) made the top ten. Joseph Biden (D-DE) and Chuck Hagel (R-NE) were among those tied for 24th, Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Trent Lott (R-MS) were tied for 36th, and Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA) tied for 56th.

John Kerry (D-MA) hung right on the approve/disapprove line at 52% at number 73. Among those receiving less than 50% approval were Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Bill Frist (R-TN).

And the absolute worst senator, according to the survey? Rick Santorum (R-PA).

Thanks Miguel. I've got it fixed now.

With Santorum's numbers continually decreasing, Democrats are beginning to feel that his political demise is only a matter of waiting until November 2006. He has a horribly bad habit of shooting off on controversial topics that don't appeal to the mainstream, especially in times of war.
