America's Least Popular Senator

Which US Senator has the lowest approval rates of them all? Give it up for local boy and box turtle enthusiast John Cornyn and his anemic 40/36 ratings!

He's not a one-hit wonder, either. As you can see on this aggregate page, in the table at the bottom where the Senators are sorted by approval rating, he clocked in at 39% last month, where only Florida's Mel Martinez trailed him. Martinez obviously had a better May than Cornyn did, as he leapfrogged our junior Senator and two other colleagues in the rankings.

Oh, well. Like his equally unpopular buddy in Austin, Cornyn has never cared about his image, and it shows. Keep up the good work, Senator, and maybe 2008 will be as much fun as 2006 is shaping up to be. Survey link via Kos.

This poll notes a high level of people that responding "not sure" which corresponds to a poll I heard about 6 months ago when over 30% of the registered voters in the sample did not know who John Cornyn was.
