Poll: Sen. Susan Collins Increasingly Unpopular
for Vote Against Obamacare Repeal

Breitbart, by Sean Moran

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 8/12/2017 11:34:19 AM

A new survey indicates that Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has become increasingly unpopular as a result of her vote against Obamacare repeal in the Senate.{SNIP}“Is Susan Collins actually a Republican? She conferences with the Republicans, there’s an R next to her name, but a question mark is more appropriate.”

Comments:
The Republican Party in Maine had better have a replacement for Ms. Collins ready for the next election. I know of several souls, including myself, who will vote for whoever opposes this woman be it in the primary or general election. If that means a democrat gets our vote, so be it. The cancer must be removed. Whether it is done by scalpel or hammer is entirely in the hands of the Republican Party.

FTA:

The new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) revealed some unfavorable polling for the Maine moderate Republican. Sixty-two percent of Maine citizens disapproved of Sen. Collins’ job performance, and 62 percent of those polled also said that they would rather vote for someone else in the Republican primary for Maine governor. Forty-four percent of Maine Republicans polled suggested that they would rather support Mary Mayhew, the former Health and Human Services commissioner for Maine.

Sixty-one percent of Maine citizens suggested that Sen. Collins voting against Obamacare repeal made them less likely to vote for Collins for governor. Only 24 percent said that it would make it more likely to vote for Collins.


77% approval for President Trump.

Maine is the hotbed of hard core left wing liberalism. I don´t buy her unpopularity there and it is probably just among those that didn´t vote for her to begin with. If she was up for reelection tomorrow my guess is she would win in a cakewalk. Don´t get your hopes up because Adolph Mitch McCorleoni will step up and try to destroy any conservative opposition she may encounter to make sure Mitch retains all power as long as possible. She´s a vote he can count on to make sure the conservative agenda goes no where.

Sen. Collins reflects many of our GOPe RINOS in the Senate. They care about themselves and what they want or need, the people are at the bottom of the barrel.

I personally have talk to Sen. Graham. He has said point blank that he does not represent the interests of South Carolina. He represents the United States. The other distasteful things that comes across from Graham is he knows better than you because he is in the Senate everyday.....BS.

I detest this man and his better half Lying Nasty McPain. Good news about Nasty, Arizona censored him yesterday, and he is on his way to visit Teddy boy.

BUT is she unpopular in Maine---that´s what counts, and as long as there are large numbers of people in that state depending on Medicaid et al. she is safe.

I think the instantaneous rubber stamping by her and Murkowski makes them look like they are in the "nasty women" category. Trump could promote a resolution saying the sky is blue and those two (with honorary nasty woman McCain) would vote no. Most constituents want leaders who will thoughtfully examine an issue and weigh its advantages and disadvantages to their home state. If you come from even a moderately wealthy state, it is not in your best interests to support a healthcare system that gives away healthcare to the poor but makes those with jobs pay sky-high premiums to support them. Collins is on the wrong side on this issue and the voters in Maine know it.

Is it possible that these swamp creatures can learn that, if for nothing but reasons of self preservation, they need to follow Trump, not fight him?

I hope so, and that this will slowly turn around. If not, we will replace them, each in their turn.

Does Judy´Send in the Clowns´Collins even visit Maine anymore? When was the last time she got her hair cut there?? (which should be the ´gold standard´ for any Rep/Sen accountability)

It might be worthwhile to perform a detailed audit of each of the "No Vote RINOs" and make those findings very public. I´d sure like to know how much money the "No Vote RINOs" are making from Obamacare, which may have influenced their votes.

You know....sometimes you look at some of these politicians and wonder why ANYBODY would vote them into office. Susan Collins is one of those. She gives me the creeps when she talks because of the way she talks and she wreaks of stupidity. Others like McCain, Schumer and others on and on just keep on looking for a TV camera to get on and spew their lies and hate and still get elected over and over.

No wonder this country is has become what it is....a nation of hateful, incompetent politicians.

Here´s the funny thing: The Governor of Maine is Paul LePage (R), a fearless, strong, intelligent man, who along with his many siblings spent some of his childhood living in the streets, the family was so poor.

He has been re-elected even after going after the welfare culture, advocating repeal of bo-care, and other policies that drive the huge lefty contingency out of their minds.

But on he goes. And he has a hilarious sense of humor.

We live in NH (moved here to escape MA corrupt politics). Governor LePage would be an awesome Senator from the great
State of ME.

BUt i have to say, if the polls are accurate, i laugh. heh heh. Collins was feeling quite full of herself, luxuriating in the (most likely planned) applause at the airport. I´d never heard her sound so light and happy and girlish.

LePage for Senator!

Re #17, that applause at the airport was a slow clap. Not applause. Look it up. It does not signify approval.

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —

One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack

In Gainesville, Florida, workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier´s statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare. In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she´s ready to tear down all of her city´s Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait.
