Still Skewed

Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's 2014 campaign manager on the recent PPP poll that found him to be the least favorably viewed senator in the country.

It speaks volumes that even a liberal Democrat pollster with an agenda to make Mitch McConnell look bad still can’t find an opponent who can lead him in Kentucky. This Democrat poll has a long-held reputation for skewed approval numbers and that’s obviously the case here since there is no poll, public or private, that has shown Senator McConnell’s approval ratings anywhere near where PPP suggests.

A "Democrat" poll with a long-held reputation for skewed approval numbers?

Public Policy Polling was rated the most accurate pollster of the 2012 election cycle.

None of McConnell's potential challengers have officially declared their candidacy, so it would seem natural that none of them currently top him in a theoretically match-up. With that said, PPP also found that Ashley Judd would enter the race within 4 points of McConnell if she chose to run.

    “A Democrat poll… a liberal Democrat pollster…”

    If the Republican party starts building giant people-ovens and a towering robotic Elmer Fudd to hunt down “Democwats,” I won’t be at all surprised at this point.

    It’s getting downright sinister over there.
