And yes that’s the state that he represents in the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has an 18 percent job approval rating in Kentucky, according to a new survey.

A Public Policy Polling survey found just 18 percent of respondents approve of the job McConnell is doing, compared with 74 percent who disapprove.

If McConnell were up for reelection today, 37 percent of respondents said they would vote for the Kentucky Republican. Another 44 percent would instead choose a Democratic opponent, according to the survey.

An additional 19 percent said they were unsure.

McConnell’s seat will be on the ballot next in 2020. 

McConnell’s Democratic challenger Amy McGrath has raised over 10 million dollars in the first three months of her campaign so McConnell should be really feeling the heat right about now. 

Man, it would be so great if we entered 2020 with a new Democratic president in the White House and anybody but Mitch McConnell representing Kentucky in the Senate. 

Then Mitch can return to his old job of climbing up on a stack of turtles to get a better look at the view of the world around him.
