McCain More Popular Among Democrats
According to the latest Gallup poll, Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) favorability among Democratic voters has skyrocketed since the last time the poll was conducted in 2015.
In 2015, McCain’s favorability among Democrats stood at 49%. Two years later — and immediately following the Senator’s vote against the Obamacare repeal, as well as his diagnosis of brain cancer — his favorability has jumped to 71%.
Meanwhile, Republican favorability of McCain has slumped from 61% in 2015 to 51% today.
You don’t have to be John Nash to understand why McCain’s favorability has jumped among Democrats. He cast the decisive vote against the “Skinny” Obamacare repeal bill in July. Had he voted in favor of the repeal, the count would have been 50/50, and Vice President Pence would have cast the deciding vote according to his Article I, Section III constitutional duties.
