Description

During September 1996, we conducted 50 individual statewide polls. Each poll included a job performance rating question on each of that state's United States Senators. Included here are the individual performance ratings for each Senator, ranked based on their popularity with their constituents. Republican William Cohen of Maine was the U.S. Senator who was most popular with his constituents, with 82% of the voters in his state rating his job performance as "excellent" or "good." Democrat Robert Byrd of West Virginia (81%) and Republican Nancy Kassebaum of Kansas (81%) were each only 1-point behind, and the only others members of the Senate to top the 80% threshold. Republican Alfonse D'Amato of New York received the lowest job performance rating from the voters in his home state and was ranked 100th. Interim Republican Sheila Frahm of Kansas (33%), and Democrats Carol Moseley-Braun of Illinois (35%), Barbara Boxer of California (36%), and Charles Robb of Virginia (36%) were the others in the bottom five.
