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.

The report said:

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
  • Quarter 4 – Approval 40 percent, disapproval 35 percent for a net approval 5 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.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
