WARWICK, R.I. – Candidate Bob Flanders released the following statement on the heels of a Morning Consult report revealing that the majority of Rhode Islanders do not hold a favorable opinion of Senator Whitehouse’s job performance as a United States senator.
“Rhode Islanders continue to reject blind hyper-partisanship. We need a problem-solving Senator who is able to negotiate bipartisan solutions that will help the hard-working people and businesses of Rhode Island, not a partisan warrior who is out of touch with the most-pressing concerns of our families and small business enterprises,” said Bob Flanders.
Yesterday, Morning Consult released the latest edition of its Senator Approval rankings, the definitive ranking of every Senator in America. Vulnerable senators such as Whitehouse are seeing sinking approval numbers and rising disapproval marks.
Whitehouse’s previous minority approval rating percentage has further decreased by 3% since Morning Consult’s last poll in October 2017.
