With 28 million Americans having already voted and President Donald Trump’s campaign in ruins – down ten to a whopping 18 points behind Joe Biden in the polls – some Americans are turning their attention for a moment to the topic of Senators, fighting to win the question of who has the worst ones.
These tweets seem to have started the battle:
I’m in Texas with Cornyn and Cruz. I bet my state has worse senators than yours. Prove me wrong!

Which state has the worst Senators? Scott and Rubio are terrible, but I have to say that Kentucky is even worse with McConnell and Rand Paul.

There’s no consensus currently, but for a while the names Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Marco Rubio of Florida were trending on Twitter.

And top Trump ally Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has been named pretty frequently.
Georgia Senators Kelly Loeffler and Daivd Perdue (currently battling accusations of racism) are also being named.
Curiously, it seems all those named “the worst” are Republicans.
Take a look at some of the top takes:
Here are the contenders for the title
KY: McConnell and Paul
GA: Loeffler and Perdue
TX: Cruz and Cornyn
FL: Scott and Rubio
IA: Ernst and Grassley
TN: Blackburn and Alexander https://t.co/EGNM5eObCs

Tennessee is the worst – Marsha Blackburn and Lamar Alexander. https://t.co/Xdfjv1GoKa

You’re all claiming the worst #Senators? Just #vote them all out & problem solved! Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Pompeo, Susan Collins, Thom Tillis etc. #VoteThemAllOut #VoteThemAllOut2020 #VoteThemOut #doit #MakeItCount #makeithappen #TimeForChange #hope

Kentucky= Moscow Mitch McConnell the Ringleader!
S. Carolina= Lap Dog Lindsey Graham! These two are the worst to me!
I don’t know who has the best Senator since Mitt Romney is the only one that voted sensibly in the impeachment!

Down to the final 6:
FL, Scott & Rubio
KY, McConnell & Paul
SC, Graham & Scott
NC, Tillis & Burr
TX, Cruz & Cornyn
GA, Loeffler & Perdue
Noticed that the worst republican senators are from Southern states.
Am I missing anyone?

I have Scott and Rubio. There is no worse. None. https://t.co/VicsxbOXGd

How about Florida? We have Medicare fraud Rick Scott & bible verse quoting moron Marco Rubio! https://t.co/GQQVbFkcqH

Sorry Paula, but you only win bronze. The gold goes to Kentucky with Moscow Mitch and everybody’s favorite punchable neighbor, Rand Paul. I win silver with Slick Rick Scott, the biggest fraudster in the history of Medicare and Lil Marco Rubio, Trump’s lap puppet. https://t.co/uM9sbXjLxc

I’ll see you and double down. Lankford and Inhofe.

We have two Senators (@sendavidperdue and @SenatorLoeffler) who have been shown to have committed insider trading and profiteered off of the coronavirus pandemic. They are the most morally bankrupt of any pair of senators. McConnell is the only one worse. https://t.co/UDJiekrQND

It is a close competition with Roy Blunt, McConnell’s bestie, and evangelist elitist, Josh Hawley? Both are of zero use to residents of Missouri, like Cornyn and Cruz, Scott and Rubio. #VoteBlue2020 https://t.co/3FaXTVK72V
— Eileen Granfors (@EileenMissouri) October 19, 2020
I have Tom Cotton as Senator in Arkansas,,,he’s worse than yours!

OK-Inhofe & Lankford. TX-Cornyn & Cruz. MS-Wicker & Smith. NC-Burr & Tillis. AZ, GA, MS, LA,WY. https://t.co/3UciqDa2cc

Some, proud of the representation they’re receiving in the Senate, opted to offer a positive response:
— oh black betty (@faith_dossey) October 19, 2020
No argument from me. I have Murphy and Blumenthal. Two of the best. https://t.co/mxfUXcaBb3
