West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin’s brand of “third way” moderate politics may not be winning him many friends in the Democratic Party, but it’s apparently a hit with folks he represents in his home state of West Virginia.
As his party has moved further left in recent years, Manchin has refused to follow, choosing to follow a centrist course instead that is frustrating Democrats as they seek to take full advantage of their congressional majority with President Joe Biden in the White House — and as one survey after another suggests the party is going to suffer badly at the polls in November.
But it’s a political course that is a winner back home, as Newsmax reports:
A Morning Consult poll reveals Senator Manchin posted a job-satisfaction rate of 57% for the first quarter of 2022 — a 17% increase from last year’s survey covering the same timeline.
Manchin’s strong approval rating might baffle some in the national media, particularly those who view Manchin as an obstructionist member of the Democrat Party.
As such, during media sessions, the longtime senator (since 2010) routinely gets asked if he’d ponder switching parties to “Independent” or even “Republican” status.
