Democratic senators from Missouri, Montana and Wisconsin could be in trouble in 2018.
The re-election of three Democratic senators could be at risk, according to a new poll released by Morning Consult this week. The poll, which aimed to find the most and least popular senators in the country, found Democrats in Missouri, Montana and Wisconsin have perilously-high disapproval ratings.
The poll found that 38 percent of voters disapprove of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who has represented Missouri since 2007.
Similarly, 39 percent of Montanans polled said they disapprove of Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT). Tester was elected in 2006 and previously served as the chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
And in Wisconsin, 38 percent of voters said they disapprove of Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who was first elected in 2012.
Those numbers are steady for McCaskill and Baldwin, but it’s a spike in disapproval for Tester, whose disapproval in the same poll was just 32 percent in April.
High disapproval ratings like the ones currently held by McCaskill, Tester and Baldwin are usually a warning sign for re-election efforts. All three are running to retain their seats in 2018.
