But we have every reason to be excited about what it says. Apparently Republican senators up for re-election in 2020, including Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, and Mitch McConnell are not all that popular. The headline says they’re “paying a political price,” which I think is premature, but I am thrilled nonetheless to see quotes like this:
“Go down the list of 2020 GOP incumbents on the ballot, and you see a similar pattern. Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) has slid from a 39/30 approval/disapproval split to 34/33; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tumbled from 44/47 to 36/50; and Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) fell from 47/37 to 40/37. These politicians’ Trump sycophancy could well cost them their seats.”
So if you’re in one of these states like I am (fuck Tillis into eternity), then it looks like there’s a chance at victory for campaigns against these terrible people. Guess I know where my volunteering will be focused in 2020!
