More gun vote repercussions
Recall this recent post on the repercussions of the gun background check vote. Now 5 more US Senators are seeing their polls plummet in the wake of that vote. Lisa Murkowski's (R-Alaska) has dropped 16 points. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) is down 18. 52% of Arizona voters said they were less likely to support Sen. Jeff Flake (R) for reelection. 46 percent of Nevadans said the same of Sen. Dean Heller (R). More than a third of voters were less likely to back Portman as well as Alaska Sens. Mark Begich (D). This is what happens when you vote against the will of the people. And this is great that they are getting their due. Hopefully this will be remembered in the next elections and perhaps democracy might return to Amercia.
