      Clinton, Schumer rank high on national scale

      New York's two U.S. senators are among the most
      popular members of the Senate anywhere in the country,
      according to a new poll by Survey USA.

      Sixty-five percent of New Yorkers give favorable marks
      to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and 61 percent have a
      positive opinion of Sen. Charles Schumer. That puts
      Clinton 15th and Schumer 27th among all 100 senators
      in terms of popularity in their home states.

      Survey USA, a New Jersey-based research firm,
      conducted concurrent polls in all 50 states, then
      ranked senators in order of their approval ratings.

      Heading the list is Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois,
      with favorable marks from 72 percent of his state's
      respondents.

      Tied for second place at 71 percent are Kent Conrad of
      North Dakota, Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Susan
      Collins and Olympia Snowe, both of Maine.

      Nineteen senators have approval ratings below 50
      percent. The lowest belong to John Cornyn of Texas (40
      percent), Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey (42 percent)
      and Richard Burr of North Carolina (42 percent).

      Ratings for all 100 senators are listed at
      surveyusa.com/100USSenatorApprovalRatings061305.htm.

      The New York portion of Survey USA's poll consisted of
      600 interviews between June 10 and June 12. The poll's
      margin of error was four percentage points.

          Thanks for the updated list, Ram. Cornyn's apparent
          unpopularity is making me think that the speculation
          that Bush could nominate Cornyn to the Supreme Court
          may be more serious than I'd realized. If Cornyn stays
          in the Senate and faces re-election in 2008 he could
          easily lose if he still has such low approval ratings.
          So Bush might prefer to give a reliable conservative
          like Cornyn a lifetime seat on a court than to see him
          be defeated by a Democrat in Bush's home state. It
          really would be quite shocking to we few liberal
          Texans to see a Democrat win a statewide race, but it
          is still possible.

          If Cornyn did go to the Supreme Court, either to
          replace Rehnquist or another aliing Justice, it would
          mean that our state would not only have Senator
          Hutchison's seat up for re-election next year but also
          a special election for Cornyn's seat. Like a friend of
          mine said to me the other day, that would make our
          normally bland state politics really go wild. We've
          already got a very odd election shaping up in the
          governor's race next year.

            Scalia will find a good friend if Cornyn is actually appointed. And he
            may get there just in time to show his support for Edgar Ray Killen if
            the case goes all the way to the Supreme Court.
