POLL: #NeverTrumper Republican Jeff Flake Falls to 18 Percent Approval Rating

Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:

Senator Jeff Flake has been a darling of media and Democrats lately.
Why? Because he’s bashing Trump and there’s nothing the left likes more than that.

The Business Insider reports:

A vulnerable Republican senator just got brutal poll numbers after his vote on the Republican healthcare bill.

The Republican push to overhaul the US healthcare system has taken a toll on Sen. Jeff Flake’s popularity, according to a new poll.

The poll, from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, found that the Arizona senator’s support of the GOP’s healthcare push had hurt voters’ opinions of him.

Overall, 52% of Arizona voters surveyed for the poll said they were less likely to vote for Flake in his 2018 reelection bid because of his vote in support of the various Republican plans. Twenty-six percent said they were more likely to vote for him because of the vote, and 20% said it made no difference.

Just 31% of those surveyed said they would vote for Flake if the election were held immediately, compared with 47% saying they would vote for a generic Democratic opponent. No Democrat has announced plans to run for the seat.

The poll also found that 62% of Arizonans disapproved of Flake’s performance, while only 18% approved.

That is brutal. What awful numbers:

Maybe his new Democrat and media supporters can help him out.
