A new Morning Consult poll says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is the most unpopular member of that chamber.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins (R-Me.) comes in as a close runner-up, The Hill reports.

The data comes from over 5,000 registered voters across the United States. The poll was conducted from April 1 through June 30.
