Since Hastert and Boehner condemned the FBI raid of Jefferson's office, I'd say their approval ratings just plummeted to zero.

Yay! At least in this survey Republicans are BLUE and DemocRATS are RED! That's the way it always was until 2000. Even in 2000 the major networks and cable news agencies were evenly split over which party had which color. But by 2004 it was universally RED=Rep, BLUE=Dim.

Note that Sen. Lieberman (D-CT) has 59% approval. Could he be in that much trouble?

No doubt there are some ultra-partisan Dems who agree with them.

Still, it's unclear to me how that's relevant to this thread. ;)

Maria Cantwell has even a worse number that dingbat Patty Murray. What an accomplishment!

Check again. (The color is by state, not by Senator.)

As an ex-CT Yankee, I can say that Lieberman is only in possible trouble in the Dem primary. He would be a candidate for a cross-endorsement (CT allows those), and a Dem win in the primary would give him a nice excuse to cross the aisle, where he would be a bit of a RINO, but still an upgrade over what CT typically offers these days.

I did check again.

When you list by "Highest Net Job Approval" or "Highest Approval" the Dims are Red and the Reps are Blue.

However, your questioning my sanity and colorblindness made me double check, and if you list the Senators alphabetically by last name, then the Dims are Blue and the Reps are Red.

So much for consistancy.

Ten of the least popular dozen are conservative Republicans. How many are up for election other than Santorum?

It appears that he should have continued that practice.

Joe Lieberman won't be in trouble in the general election. The Democratic primary is where the problem might lie.

If it were allowed, I'd re-register as a Democrat just to be able to vote in the Dem primary to make sure Lieberman keeps the Democratic nomination. Compared to the lunatics who would replace him, Lieberman is rational and sane.

If he makes it through the primary, he'll be re-elected. He's really a good Senator for Connecticut, and he's actually politically just about where the people of this state are. Connecticut is a liberal state, but it's a business liberal/practical common sense sort of place (as contrasted with New York, on one side, and Massachussetts on the other). Remember, we carried out an execution here last year. The death penalty in New England. Go figure. Connecticut's like that.

Pure BS. It looks like in North Carolina, they may have done their polling sample in Durham or Chapel Hill.

This just proves how stupid the public is. If they were actually following the Senate shennanigans, then they would all rate near zero.

Since I did not refer to any "lefties" this remark makes no sense but I have yet to see any strategy or understanding of the "true" conservatives which have.

Lieberman has a 17/100 lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union, and is worse in recent years. The idea that he would somehow make an acceptable RINO seems crazy to me.

He's a Conservative and it's become more obvious that the MSM isn't so much against just Republicans but double their efforts to degrade Conservative Republicans.

Well I expect that bias from the national media, but even here in Arizona, no one seems to know who he is, or they spell his name JOHN or KYLE. I'm talking about the average, somewhat literate Arizonan, which is directly attributable to the local media ignoring him too.

Hitlery's approval rating is consistently lower than Bushes = but all we ever see is that she's the dem front runner.

So does that mean all other dem contenders are less than 26%?

Why aren't these stats yelled from the housetop like Bush's?

The devil can quote....

Wow, really impressive numbers for Barak Obama--the highest of ANY senator--amazing even for a Blue state like Illinois. You'll see him on the national ticket in the not-to-distant future.

I never said he was acceptable, I said it would be an upgrade. He replaced Weicker. Also, I suspect if he jumped the aisle he would go from 17 to about 30. Still not acceptable, just better than what CT usually serves up from EITHER party.
