It looks like Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) isn’t the only one facing a backlash over her decision to vote against Mr. Trump’s removal.

Republican Senator Joni Ernst’s (IA) approval rating has slipped by 10 percentage points after her decision to vote against the president’s removal. Her approval rating slipped from 57% in February 2019 to 47% today.

According to the Des Moines Register:

‘Still, 41% of likely voters say they would definitely vote to re-elect her if the election were held today, while 31% say they would definitely vote to elect someone else, 3% say they would not vote and 6% are unsure.’

Ernst was the first Iowa woman elected to Congress in 2014 when she beat Democrat Bruce Bailey. She will be on the ballot in November in what could become a key race for Democrats hoping to retake the Senate.

The Des Moines Register reported:

‘Elections analysts rate the race as “leaning Republican.” But the campaigning is only just taking off in earnest after presidential campaigns sucked up much of Iowa’s political oxygen in the year leading up to the February 2020 caucuses.’

The poll of 800 Iowa adults was conducted by Selzer and Co. on March 2-5, and included 667 likely voters.

According to the Des Moines Register:

‘Over the past year, Ernst has focused on securing year-round access to gasoline with higher blends of ethanol, combatting sexual assault in the military and working toward the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.’

Kerri Christian, a 62 year-old poll respondent said:

‘The only thing I like about Joni – she stands up for what she believes in, whether you like it or not, she does.’
