      Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is among the most popular senators in the country after seeing his favorability skyrocket back home over the past year, according to an analysis of survey data released Monday.

      Morning Consult found that, even as Manchin has faced backlash from progressives nationally, about 57 percent of West Virginia voters viewed him favorably in surveys conducted from January through March. His popularity jumped 17 points — more than any other senator — compared to the same period last year.

      The poll found that Manchin’s popularity particularly grew among independent and Republican voters in West Virginia, while it dropped among Democrats.

      At the top of the popularity rankings, Morning Consult found that Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were all viewed favorably by 62 percent of their respective states’ voters.

      It means they like elected officials who have the courage to be Opposition to their own damn party, if their constituents stand to lose. And by “constituents”, no, I don’t mean corporations and mining interests and fossil fuel companies. I mean miners and other who have JOBS on which they are trying to support families.

      I don’t like Joe Manchin, but if I lived in West Virginia I sure would. And if he were running for higher office, it would be interesting.

        go overseas.  And now Biden wants to just go ahead and issue green cards for H-1B folks.  Because Bezos wants that.

          Meanwhile, on his campaign promise from 2020 on student loan forgiveness, we get what? Endless shilling from Schumer that “he’s getting there, he’s almost there, just another few weeks, folks!”, public release of the Department of Education’s assessment that he has the authority to do it unilaterally is being delayed for no reason, now they’ve got academic studies coming out (as if those are also necessary for passing tax cuts for the 1% and subsidies to fossil fuels companies) as to “what will happen if we forgive student debt???”

          Nothing but mountains of bullshit, as far as the eye can see. Everyone dutifully waiting to actually try to do it until AFTER Republicans take over in midterms. Then it won’t get done because “Republicans won’t LET us!”

      Democratic Party.  Manchin enables them to pretend to be progressive, and that is, well, perhaps not quite invaluable, because there are more price tags on Congress than on a shipping container full of Fanny Brice’s hats.
