Mitch McConnell, Bernie Sanders top America's least and most popular senators lists

America's political landscape has gone through dramatic changes since September 2016, however, some opinions remain the same -- Senate Majority Leady Mitch McConnell remains the least popular member of the U.S. Senate, while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders remains the most popular.

According to a new poll by the Morning Consultant, 47 percent of Kentucky residents disapprove of their senator, while 44 percent approve.

Although he is the least popular senator, McConnell's ratings appear to be moving in a positive direction. A similar poll conducted in September found 51 percent of those polled disapproved of McConnell and just 39 percent approved.

Since President Trump took office, McConnell has led the Republican charge to get his Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch confirmed. Republicans succeeded over the Democratic filibuster by resorting to a rule change known as the "nuclear option." Gorsuch was sworn in on Monday, filling the vacant seat left after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

According to the same survey, three-quarters of Vermont residents approve of Sen. Sanders. Twenty-one percent disapprove and four percent did not know. Sanders remains the most popular U.S. senator, but the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate's approval rating is down 12 points from September when his approval rating was 87 percent.
