National poll indicates Corker now more popular among Democrats than Republicans

Democrats are now prone to have a more favorable opinion of Tennessee’s Bob Corker than Republicans, according to an Economist/YouGov poll. Two other Republican U.S. senators who have clashed with President Donald Trump – John McCain and Jeff Flake, both of Arizona – are in a similar situation in the poll of 1,500 persons nationwide Oct. 29-31.

Corker had a 37 percent approval rating among Democrats, but just 15 percent approval among Republicans surveyed. At the same time, 45 percent of polled Republicans had an unfavorable view of Corker but only 22 percent of Democrats.

The Tennessean’s totals – Democrats, Republicans and independents combined – came out 23 percent favorable, 32 percent unfavorable.

There were a lot of “don’t know” responses on Corker and Flake. McCain, a former presidential nominee much better known nationally, was viewed favorably by 64 percent of Democrats and 21 percent of Republicans; unfavorably by 63 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of Democrats.

    Gee, why am I not surprised? It did not take “Li’L” corker long to swim with the “swamp” people once he reached the banks of the “swamp” in dc. As usual, “li’l” corker is only interested in enriching himself. What a loser “li’l” corker is!
