Sanders named most popular senator in America

According to a constituent poll conducted by Morning Consult, Bernie Sanders is the most popular senator in the United States.

The poll of 62,000 registered voters determined which senators were most liked, or loathed by their constituents by calculating their approval rating.

It found that eighty percent of Vermont voters said they approve of Sanders, while just 17 percent disapprove, the best numbers of any senator in the United States.

Senator Sanders also came out on top the last time such a poll was released, in November.

Among the most disliked senators included Marco Rubio of Florida, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John McCain of Arizona, who all scored a disapproval rating of greater than 41 per cent.
