Maine Senator Susan Collins makes list for most unpopular senator

A global technology company known as Morning Consult has released U.S. Senator Approval Rankings for the 4th quarter of 2019.

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — A global technology company known as Morning Consult has released U.S. Senator Approval Rankings for the 4th quarter of 2019.

It lists Maine’s Senator Susan Collins as the number one most unpopular senator followed by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

"This is an online poll that has little credibility. We are confident that it does not reflect reality, and Senator Collins remains focused on the job that Mainers elected her to do," Senator Collins' campaign spokesperson Kevin Kelley said.
