Senator Tillis Is The LEAST Popular Senator In The Country

Senator Tillis is the least popular Senator in the county, according to new ratings out from Morning Consult.

According to Morning Consult, Senator Tillis’ approval rating fell an additional 3 points in recent weeks, leaving him with an approval rating of just 33 percent.

Morning Consult notes, “former state Sen. Cal Cunningham raised $1 million, close to the $1.2 million haul by Tillis,” a weak showing by an incumbent Senator who has spent millions on his primary challenge from Garland Tucker and is “not raising the money needed in an expensive state. 

Here’s more from Morning Consult:

  • The most vulnerable Republican senators are not improving their standing in their home states ahead of a tough 2020 election cycle, while the field of potential Democratic challengers took shape and began to flex its muscle.
  • Republicans representing Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina, Maine and Iowa all saw their net approval… decline between the second and third quarters of 2019.
  • The latest figures come as Democrats in Washington have touted the third-quarter fundraising success of the party’s candidates.
  • And in North Carolina, former state Sen. Cal Cunningham raised $1 million, close to the $1.2 million haul by Tillis.
