Harry Reid Tanks With Public- Approval Ratings In Teens!

“I’m not going to get into a name-calling match with the administration’s chief attack dog. … I’m not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody who has a 9 percent approval rating”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
April, 2007

That was before Senator Harry “This war is lost” Reid’s approval ratings dropped into the teens.
Rasmussen reported:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%.

Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion of Reid while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.

Reid has been very visible over the past week in the furor over immigration reform. The effort to pass a bill that was more popular in Congress than among voters may have hurt public perceptions of the Democratic leader. His ratings are down from a month ago when 26% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senator. Reid’s highest ratings were 30% favorable in February.

Vice President Dick Cheney’s numbers held steady—38% favorable and 58% unfavorable.

Bummer… That means if you doubled Reid’s marks they would just equal Cheney’s approval rating.

And… The president’s very favorable number is more than 5 times that of Harry Reid at 16% versus 4%. The president’s approval rating is nearly double Reid’s at 35%.

Powerline adds this: “Scott Rasmussen’s latest survey has Harry Reid in a dead heat with Scooter Libby, each with a 19% approval rating. And Reid hasn’t even been convicted of anything yet!” -Ouch!

UPDATE: (Tuesday) Congress approval ratings lowest in 25 years!
