Devils Walk Among Us, But at Least Mitch McConnell Is in Hell

Collage of reporters dubbed “enemies” in Trump campaign

United States Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a statement saying the messages of hate from white supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups is not welcomed in Kentucky.

"According to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with almost 7 in 10 (68 percent) judging the Republican Congress a failure so far after last month's repeal and replace plan died in the Senate, approval of the current Republican leaders in Congress has dropped from 39 percent in January to just 24 percent now".

Republican voters were much more likely to say the president is more honest, with 55 percent agreeing. How he tweets and talks about Republicans seems to be a way to distance himself from the party. Trump has publicly fumed over Republicans' inability to make that goal a reality and holds Congress responsible, something that appears to resonate with GOP voters. "After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?"

The stalling of the health care effort has also taken a toll on the majority leader's popularity among Republicans.

McConnell and Trump clashed a week ago after the lawmaker commented at an event in Kentucky that Trump had "excessive expectations" of the pace at which Congress operates. Trump, on the other hand, tried to blame extremists on "both sides" for the mayhem.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says President Donald Trump's comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, are dividing Americans instead of healing them. "We just haven't seen that at all from President Trump yet".

"By targeting Mitch McConnell, President Trump has once again demonstrated how much influence he wields within the Republican base", said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult's co-founder and chief research officer. Fifty-two percent said Trump was more concerned about looking out for Republicans' best interests, double the quarter of GOP respondents who said McConnell.

Chao is married to McConnell and a member of Trump's cabinet. When taking all respondents into account, 47 percent said that the Senate majority leader knows more on policy issues. Nearly half (47 percent) of GOP respondents gave McConnell an edge over Trump (29 percent) when it came to knowledge of the legislative process.
