Was that the sound of a U-Haul backing up to Jay Williams Campaign Office, so they can start moving equipment into storage? Because according to the website Morning Consult, Jay’s opponent John Thune is ranked as the 3rd most popular US Senator in America.
According to their methodology, “Based on interviews with almost 72,000 registered voters since May, Morning Consult crunched how constituents feel about their home-state senators (see more on methodology here).” Bernie Sanders is #1, and John Thune is neck in neck with Maine’s Susan Collins for #2.
He’s 1 percentage point behind on popularity, but has a lower negative. That’s a pretty tough row to hoe for Thune’s opponent Jay Williams, (who will likely respond by muttering that we need to quit using fossil fuels, and that taxes are too low).
And it’s not like South Dakota’s Junior Senator fared poorly himself. Mike Rounds narrowly missed the top ten by coming in at #13:
Not that it comes as a shock to us, but it’s a testament to Republican leadership in South Dakota that we know how to pick ’em, and that they do a good job for our State. Keep up the good work, Senators!
And sorry Jay. Better luck next time.
If you ask nicely, I’d let you use my appliance cart to load your stuff. This might be good time to start loading.
