Despite having the lowest approval rating in the Senate, McConnell is the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Kentucky history.
An opinion poll, sometimes simply referred to as a poll, is a human research survey of public opinion from a particular sample.
During the administration of President Barack Obama, McConnell was known to the left as an obstructionist while some on the right praised him for tenacity and courage.
Barack Hussein Obama II is an American politician who is the 44th and current President of the United States.
From early 2016, McConnell refused to schedule Senate hearings for Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, to replace Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.
Associate Justice or Associate Judge is the title for a member of a judicial panel who is not the Chief Justice in some jurisdictions.
Merrick Brian Garland is the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
A supreme court is the highest court within the hierarchy of many legal jurisdictions.
Garland's nomination remained before the Senate for 294 days, from March 16, 2016 until it expired on January 3, 2017, more than double the time of any other Supreme Court nomination.
