Here’s Today’s Poll Question…
Behind The Poll
Mitch McConnell doesn’t have a good track record of winning negotiations with Democrats. Just this summer Trump blasted him, saying:
Under the weak leadership of Mitch McConnell, Senate Republicans continue to lose. He lost Arizona, he lost Georgia, he ignored Election Fraud and he doesn’t fight. Now he’s giving Democrats everything they want and getting nothing in return. No deal is better than a bad deal. Fight for America, not for special interests and Radical Democrats. RINOs are ruining America, right alongside Communist Democrats.Donald J. Trump, July 29, 2021
Democrats’ assessment of McConnell is similar to Trump’s. After McConnell offered Democrats a short-term suspension of the debt ceiling in early October, Senator Elizabeth Warren said he had capitulated to Democrats.
“McConnell caved,” Warren told reporters after a closed door meeting. “And now we’re going to spend our time doing child care, health care, and fighting climate change.”
