Senate Majority Leader, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell faces backlash from his own voters as poll favors the democratic plan for future bailout contrary to McConnell’s opposition to more federal aid to state and local governments.
The survey carried out by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling on 1,547 Kentucky voters shows that 65 percent favor the Democratic proposal to allocate 1 trillion dollars to state and local governments to help cover budget costs. Only 21 percent of Kentucky voters voiced opposition to such a large amount for a bailout.
The Kentucky senator, although initially opposed to providing any more federal aid to state and local governments, later said some may get additional aid.
However, he is far behind endorsing the $960 billion stimulus proposal favored by Senate Democratic Leader New York’s Charles Schumer.
