I didn't, either Dan.  So MoveON educated us both.  He certainly is one of the most "colorless," lifeless-looking people I've ever seen!  Hard to even LOOK at him on TV.  He never smiles.  He's a "talking head."  Looks & acts like one of the "walking dead zombies" from a horror movie.

I didn't realize he was so unpopular in his own state.  That is good news!  --Dan

A new poll from Kentucky finds that Mitch McConnell is "the least popular senator in America." With your help, we can launch an ad campaign in Kentucky that will help lock in Sen. McConnell's unpopularity and encourage Republicans to finally start cooperating as the January 1 budget deadline approaches. Can you chip in $5?

Dear MoveOn member,
Shocking news: A new poll finds that Mitch McConnell, who infamously said his top priority was to make Obama a one-term president, has a dismal 37% approval rating in his home state, making him "the least popular senator in America."1
Any senator with numbers this bad is in serious trouble. And it's incredibly important news for the fiscal showdown and other key issues because it shows that the Republicans can't get away with just saying no to everything—even in red states like Kentucky.
That's why this poll is already sending shockwaves through Washington. And to keep the momentum going, MoveOn is planning a no-nonsense TV ad holding Sen. McConnell and other key Republicans accountable for their refusal to work with Obama for a balanced solution to the budget.
It's a two-fer—we can help lock in McConnell's decline in popularity, and push the GOP to finally cooperate as the January 1 deadline approaches. But to make it happen we need to raise at least $200,000. Can you chip in $5? 
Mitch McConnell has long been the ring-leader of the anti-Obama obstructionists in Congress, breaking every record in the book for filibusters.

But because Kentucky is such a red state, it was assumed he was politically unbeatable. Turns out even Kentucky wants Republicans to start working with Obama.
That's why this new poll is so important. Seeing the mastermind of their entire political strategy this far down in the polls is a serious wake-up call, forcing them to finally negotiate with Obama.
These next few weeks will set the tone for the next four years. If we can keep the momentum from the election going and break through the Republican intransigence, there's no telling how much change we'll be able to make going forward.
But like most groups, our financial coffers are lower after the election, and we really need your help to stay fully mobilized through January 1. If you can chip in $5 to help keep the pressure on Republicans like Mitch McConnell, click the link below:
Thanks for all you do.
