But is it possible that the public would — given a choice between the two — back Trump?
The answer, according to a new poll, is a resounding yes.
According to a new Harvard-Harris poll via The Hill, McConnell is America’s least popular politician — with an overall favorability rating of just 19 percent. Worse yet for the Kentucky Senator, his is viewed unfavorably even within his party. Just 32 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the Majority Leader, while 40 percent view him unfavorably.
Indeed, those numbers pale in comparison to Trump’s. The President, according to this new Harvard/Harris survey, has a 41 percent overall favorability rating. Fifty-five percent view him unfavorably.
That number does appear to be a bit of an outlier compared to other polls. His Gallup approval rating has been hovering around the low-to-mid thirties of late.
