Sen. Elizabeth Warren really made a name for herself over the past 2 years, especially during the 2016 campaign season when she stood for Hillary Clinton and knocked President Donald Trump at every turn.
However, thanks to an amazingly popular Republican governor, she’s now facing a political problem she never thought she’d encounter in her reliably blue state of of Massachusetts — one that could change everything.
Free Beacon reports:
Massachusetts is a reliably blue state in most national elections, but its outspoken Democratic senator has seen her approval ratings drop among voters who approve of their Republican governor by a wide margin.
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (Mass.) approval ratings have slipped over the past year, while Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s (Mass.) numbers rank him as the nation’s most popular governor, according to a new Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.
Over the last three months, nearly 2,500 Massachusetts voters participated in the online poll, which showed Baker with a 75 percent approval rating of his job performance, compared to a 17 percent disapproval rating, the Boston Globe reported.
Both Warren and Baker are up for reelection in 2018. While Baker has rebounded in the survey, Warren’s approval ratings have slipped.
Fifty-six percent of the poll’s respondents approved of Warren’s job performance, compared to 38 percent who disapproved of it.
Warren’s approval ratings have dropped five percent since April 2016, when 61 percent of voters approved of Warren’s performance while 27 percent disapproved of it.
According to another poll conducted in January 2017, 46 percent of Massachusetts voters are ready to vote Warren out of office next year.
