Surprise: Joe Manchin’s Approval Rating Skyrockets

Perhaps other senators and representatives should take notice: when you put your own constituents first, whether it be the whole state you were elected to represent or your district, rather than the Party, big outside interests, etc, those constituents like you

Sen. Joe Manchin’s West Virginia approval rating skyrockets during Biden’s term, Morning Consult poll finds

Sen. Joe Manchin’s approval rating has soared in his home state of West Virginia compared to last year, a recent poll by Morning Consult shows. Manchin’s popularity jump comes after months of blocking of White House priorities.

According to the poll, 57% of voters approve of Manchin, compared to 40% in the first quarter of 2021. His approval rating saw the biggest improvement of any senator within the first quarter of this year.

Republicans, especially, found a lot to like about Manchin. According to the poll, his approval rating nearly doubled among those voters to 69% since the first quarter of 2021.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has slid. In a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University in January only 33% of people who took the survey approved the president’s performance, while 53% did not.

Too many elected officials simply want to stick with the Big Agenda of their party, rather than considering the wants and needs of the people who voted them in, along with the people who voted for the Other Guy. Manchin seems concerned with the needs and wants of West Virginia, hence the approval rating bump. Biden seems concerned with his own agenda, regardless of it making no sense and hurting American citizens.

I’ll say it again: it’s why the 17th Amendment needs to be repealed so that Senators are appointed by the state legislatures, so that they are beholden to their states. Period.

Doesn’t mean Manchin is a great guy. He still has quite a few left leaning positions, but, he’s just not a wackadoodle leftist nutjob.

    Senx Manchin has used his position to make himself a multimillionaire. Dollars are transferred from the pockets of hard-working West Virginians to his pocket. If West Virginians don’t care that’s their problem. WV is a beautiful state with great people.

    Hell’s Bells, most professional pols use their position to line their pockets.
    How many pols have independently acquired their personal wealth prior to entering politics?
