There’s not a senator in America whose constituents are so approving as those of self-professed Socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
In the Green Mountain State, 71 percent of those polled by Morning Consult approve of Sanders’s performance.
Alaska’s Sens. Lisa Murkowsi and Dan Sullivan both received approval ratings of 49 percent, about in the middle of the pack and slightly above average.
In the more-conservative state of Alaska, Murkowski’s disapproval rating edged up to 38 percent, while Sullivan’s was 32 percent. The margin of error was calculated at 5 percent in this poll.
Murkowski’s approval has sagged by 6 percent since the last Morning Consult poll in July, when 55 percent of respondents said they approved and 37 percent disapproved.
The average senator approval rating is 47 percent in the third quarter poll.
