A poll released on Tuesday by Morning Consult revealed who the most liked US senators are.

The outlet interviewed nearly 72,000 registered voters since May.

Of the five most liked and five least liked senators in the US, just two are up for reelection this fall (John McCain of Arizona and Marco Rubio of Florida).

Among the five least liked senators, only two have a net approval rating below zero, which means more respondents view them favorably than unfavorably – they just happen to be the five senators who have the highest percentage of respondents who disapprove of their work.

Here are those most and least liked senators:
