Alabama Democrat’s Approval Rating Tanks During First Year in Office

Published

on

U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-Ala.) eked out a 21,000 vote victory over Judge Roy Moore in a Dec. 2017 special election, but his approval rating has plummeted since assuming office.

“[J]ones’s net approval rating has dropped 17 points since the first quarter of 2018, according to quarterly rankings of U.S. Senators,” said an AL.com report.

The report cited a recent Morning Consult Poll, which places Jones’ approval rating at 40 percent, and disapproval rating at 35 percent. The poll notes that 25 percent have no opinion on Jones.

Since taking office in January 2018, Jones’ approval rating in Morning Consult quarterly polls has been:

  • Quarter 1 – Approval 47 percent, disapproval 25 percent for a net approval of 22 percent
  • Quarter 2 – Approval 45 percent, disapproval 28 percent for a  net approval of 17 percent
  • Quarter 3 – Approval 43 percent, disapproval 30 percent for a net approval of 13 percent

Those numbers show a steady decline over Jones’ first year, indicating some buyers’ remorse on behalf of Alabama voters.

The poll was released in the midst of a political scandal involving Democratic donors funding a sketchy Moore opposition operation in which a company called New Knowledge, run by Jonathon Morgan. Morgan created Twitter bots that flooded Moore’s social media account that he publicly claimed originated in Russia, thereby linking Moore to the hysteria surrounding President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 election. He also created Facebook – now deleted – that were used to split the vote between Moore and a third candidate. The project was funded with money from Silicon Valley billionaire and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman.
