Poll: Sen. Susan Collins Increasingly Unpopular for Vote Against Obamacare Repeal

A new survey indicates that Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has become increasingly unpopular as a result of her vote against Obamacare repeal in the Senate.

Sen. Collins, along with Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John McCain (R-AZ), voted against Obamacare repeal in the Senate, effectively halting the repeal effort in the upper chamber. Conservatives have frequently chastised Sen. Susan Collins’ opposition to repealing Obamacare. She opposed Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare in 2015, and she voted against repealing Obamacare this summer. Jason Pye, vice president of legislative affairs for FreedomWorks, asked, “Is Susan Collins actually a Republican? She conferences with the Republicans, there’s an R next to her name, but a question mark is more appropriate.”

Many pundits speculate that Sen. Collins might run for Maine governor after current Governor Paul LePage finishes up his final term in 2018. Collins ran for governor and lost against now-Sen. Angus King (I-ME) in 1994.

The new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) revealed some unfavorable polling for the Maine moderate Republican. Sixty-two percent of Maine citizens disapproved of Sen. Collins’ job performance, and 62 percent of those polled also said that they would rather vote for someone else in the Republican primary for Maine governor. Forty-four percent of Maine Republicans polled suggested that they would rather support Mary Mayhew, the former Health and Human Services commissioner for Maine.

Sixty-one percent of Maine citizens suggested that Sen. Collins voting against Obamacare repeal made them less likely to vote for Collins for governor. Only 24 percent said that it would make it more likely to vote for Collins.

Seventy-seven percent of Maine Republicans approved of President Donald Trump’s job performance, while only 19 percent of Republicans disapprove of the president.

    I guessing that she probably ran on Repeal and Replace to get elected. Time to send these traitors to their constituents to the unemployment line.

    She’s done herself in for American’s are becoming wise the the RINO’S who we used to call sleeping dogs, so she’s on her way out for sure. Stupid mistake shafting American’s in the area of their health care, we could all use a break for crying out loud. It is now personal for us with these elitists who live lavishly while many of us are just getting by, or are poor, or retired and were very excited about changes to help us, but no, they had to go and tank the repeal.
