Burns: First at Being Last

On the bright side for Senator Burns, he has some company at the bottom of the list, finally. Survey USA lists the Senator as having the lowest Net Approval of any U.S. Senator, at -10%. That means 42% (and the Independent Record) approve, while 52% do not. Those are huge negative numbers for the Senator, and it’s not getting any better, as the graphic shows.

It’s looking more and more like we will have a competitive race this fall. Now, the question is can Democrats get behind a candidate with a message? One who can challenge Burns?

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
