Poll: McCain's the 'wacko,' not Rand Paul

Who's the "wacko bird" now, Mac?

In the first personality poll taken since Sen. John McCain fired his his "wacko birds" Maverick missile at fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster last week, the young turk turns out to be far more popular than his old bull critic.

Rasmussen Reports reveals that 67 percent of likely GOP voters have a favorable opinion of the first-term Kentucky senator. Just 52 percent view McCain favorably, and of that just 16 percent call their opinion "very favorable," said the pollster. For Paul, it's a nine-point, one-month surge and likely the result of his filibuster and McCain's friendly fire.
