Republicans don’t especially care for George Santos, a controversial freshman congressman from New York, and national favorables for Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene are not terribly impressive either, according to a new Monmouth University poll released today.
Santos has a favorables of 12%, while 42% view him unfavorably.
“Santos is more widely recognized than some people who are in the discussion for president,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. “Republicans may not like him all that much, but he is a household name.”
Greene has favorables of 30%-19%.
Newly-elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is viewed more favorably on a national level than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. McCarthy is at 48%-15%, while McConnell is upside-down at 23%-53%.
The Monmouth University Poll was conducted from January 26 to February 2 with 566 Republican and Republican-leaning voters in the United States and has a margin of error of +/- 6.1%.
