Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) may be the most visible critic of President Donald Trump in the U.S. Senate, but most of her constituents believe it is time for someone else to represent them.
According to a WBUR report, a new poll of Massachusetts voters found that only 44 percent think Warren "deserves re-election" while 46 percent think voters ought to "give someone else a chance" to occupy her Senate seat. Warren has a 51 percent approval rating among her state’s voters, while Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, has a 58 percent approval rating.
“No one's going to look at a 44 percent reelect number and think that that's a good number,” said Steve Koczela, president of The MassINC Polling Group, which conducted the new survey for WBUR. “No one's going to look at it being close to even between 're-elect' and 'give someone else a chance' and think that that's reassuring.”
Earlier in the month, Warren took the unusual step of announcing her re-election very far in advance. She has also been prominent in the Senate hearings to confirm President Trump’s cabinet picks, offering aggressive questioning to candidates including Dr. Ben Carson for the role of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Betsy DeVoss for Secretary of Education.
