Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is more popular with Democrats than Republicans, according to The Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday.

  • 52 percent of Democrats see McCain in a positive light.
  • 35 percent of Republicans like McCain.
  • 44 percent of Republicans have a negative view of the Arizona senator.

Regardless of party affiliation, more voters are favorable toward McCain than against him:

  • 43 percent approve of McCain.
  • 28 percent disapprove of McCain.

The low popularity grade comes after McCain cast a deciding vote that led to an Obamacare repeal bill not passing in the Senate, according to The Hill.

McCain was highly popular among Republicans back in 2008 when he was the presidential nominee. He had a 79 percent approval rating at that time, The Hill reported.

In a Monday speech to his alma mater, the Naval Academy, McCain said the United States "became the most powerful nation on Earth by tearing down walls, not building them."

The poll of 900 adults was conducted Oct. 23 to Oct. 26, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.27 percentage points.
