Well, this is a surprise! The Democrats are throwing their support to someone that is incredibly surprising.
A poll has just been released and the republican from Arizona, Senator John McCain is getting some love from the Democrats.
This is from a CNN survey that was released, it seem like the democrats and the independents are having a favorable view of Senator McCain than even the republican voters.
Considering their alternative is Hilary Clinton, the logic does not seem too far out there.
The poll showed that a shocking sixty-eight percent of the Democrats have stated that they actually approve of the Senator.
This is strangely lower than the Republicans. Only 46 percent expressed approval for the Arizona Senator.
With that established, it should be noted that McCain is still overall favored with the public.
Fifty-four percent of all adults indicated they had a positive view of him and only 30 percent viewed him unfavorably.
This was a telephone poll that the SSRS conducted. The random sample of 1,001 adults was questioned from December 14th to December 17th.
The survey’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points for the full sample of adults, and 7.3 points when broken down by party.
McCain has always had a hot and cold relationship with the conservatives for as far back as 2008. When he was booed at the Conservative Political Action Committee after questioning his overall nomination.
He has been at odds with several members. Even calling Senator Ted Cruz and Rand Paul “wacko birds”. This happened in 2013 over disputing differences with the drone policy.
This feud has even included our current President. President Donald Trump had taken some shots over the political rallies the senator held in Arizona.
The criticism may have contributed to a tougher-than-expected primary challenge last year by Kelli Ward. Despite losing by a double-digit margin, Ward still received almost 40 percent of the vote in the primary election.
McCain, who has served three decades in the Senate, secured another term by defeating his general election opponent by a 13-point margin.
Perhaps the most compelling reason for any contention was his betrayal. He destroyed all efforts to get Obamacare repealed. His vote was cast and the Democrats loved him for it, while the conservatives spent their time nursing the knife wound in their back.
In spite of all this, everyone from both sides of the political spectrum have come together in wishing the Senator well after he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
He will be seeking treatment and spending time with his family in Arizona, instead of voting for the tax reform bill. His office released a statement on the matter.
“Senator McCain has returned to Arizona and will undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic. He is grateful for the excellent care he continues to receive, and appreciates the outpouring of support from people all over the country. He looks forward to returning to Washington in January.”
Well wishes to Senator John McCain
