New Poll - GOP voters like Trump but not McConnell

A new poll by YouGov for the British newsmagazine "The Economist" shows that President Trump is viewed very favorably by Republican voters while Mitch McConnell is viewed unfavorably.   resident Trump was viewed favorably by 87% of Republicans and unfavorably by only 12%, giving him a net favorability of +75.  Mitrch MConnell, on the other hand was viewed unfavorably by 51% and favorably by only 36%, making him "underwater" on favorability at -15,
This may be particularly significant for North Carolina since McConnell has asserted he will get heavily involved in GOP primaries and he has expressed his dislike of the proepective candidacy of Lara Trump for the US Senate seat in NC in 2022

Another poll has now confirmed what two previous polls have shown, that the majority of Republican voters do not like Mitch McConnell. The latest is the Politico / Morning Consult poll which showed that 53% of Republicans had a negative view of McConnell while only 34% has a positive view. That makes him 19 points underwater on favorability.
