37% of New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of the Senate minority leader.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been obstructing President Trump and the Republican Party’s agenda at every turn, and this tactic doesn’t appear to be sitting well with his constituents who, in a recent poll, gave Schumer his worst ratings ever.
A Siena College poll released on Thursday found that 37 percent of New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of Schumer, his highest unapproval rating ever. The poll also found that Schumer’s favorability among New Yorkers is at its lowest point ever.
This new poll suggests that Schumer’s constituents aren’t big fans of the Senate Democrats’ obstructionist strategy, which is evident in their refusal to work with Senate Republicans on fixing Obamacare.
The Washington Examiner recently reported on how Senate Democrats have also filibustered two-thirds of President Trump’s picks to fill administration posts.
The Examiner said:
Every nominee was eventually confirmed, but the extensive use of the filibuster has slowed the process of staffing the administration to a near-crawl, leaving numerous federal agencies and departments lacking key personnel.
So far, 27 of the 41 nominees needing Senate confirmation have required Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to invoke cloture, the process for ending filibusters.
Combined with other recent polling that shows a majority of Americans don’t believe the Democratic Party has a message, it doesn’t appear the Democratic Party has learned from its 2016 mistakes.
