Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is the least liked politician in the nation, a new Harvard-Harris poll reveals.

The results were provided exclusively to The Hill.

Here are the highlights:

  • 19 percent of those surveyed gave McConnell a favorable rating, while 49 percent had a negative view of him.
  • 41 percent had a favorable view of President Donald Trump, while 55 percent were unfavorable.
  • House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., received a favorable rating from 33 percent of those polled, compared to 47 percent who had a negative view of him.
  • 44 percent were positive toward Vice President Mike Pence and 42 percent were negative.

"National approval numbers are totally inconsequential for congressional leadership who, if they do their job well, are bestowed little of the credit for successes yet shoulder much of the blame for shortcomings," McConnell's political adviser Josh Holmes told he Hill.

The Harvard-Harris Poll online survey consisted of 2,263 registered voters and was conducted from Aug. 17-22. The breakdown was 37 percent Democrat, 31 percent Republican, 29 percent independent and 3 percent other.
