The following newspaper report shows that "Mitch" McConnell's job approval rating is 47%. He'd better gain more public support before November 2008 or he'll be ditched, out of office, and out of a job!
"Louisville, KY – Today Lt. Col. Andrew Horne (Ret.), Spc. Brian Smith, Sgt. Bill Zubeaty, Kentucky veterans and military families will gather outside Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Louisville office to protest his continued support for President Bush’s failed Iraq war policy. Kentuckians are urging Sen. McConnell to stand up to President Bush and vote to bring a safe and responsible end to the war in Iraq.
Sen. McConnell once again blocked an end to the war today, voting against legislation offered by Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI). The measure was an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2008 Defense Authorization bill, would have begun the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq within 90 days and wrapped up the process within nine months.
Even before today’s vote, Sen. McConnell has been feeling the heat from his constituents for his continued support of the President’s reckless Iraq war policy. A recent poll by the Lexington Herald-Leader and Action News 36 showed that majority of Kentuckians – 55 percent of those polled – oppose Sen. McConnell’s continued support for the war and 57 percent said the cost of the war has been too high in terms of expense and loss of life. The poll also indicates that his reckless Iraq position is hurting Sen. McConnell’s credibility with Kentuckians: his approval rating has sunk to 47 percent, with 44 percent disapproving."
GET OUT THERE AND LET MITCH KNOW
