DescriptionSen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is the most popular senator running for reelection, while Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is the least, according to new polling data.

Public Policy Polling (PPP), a Democratic-leaning firm, looked at the approval ratings for 59 senators during the second half of 2010, and several of them will face voters in 2012. The senators were ranked by the spread between their approval numbers and disapproval numbers.

Of the 59, Klobuchar is the most popular, with an approval rating of 59 and a disapproval of 29 (a 30-point spread), while Lieberman has an approval rating of 33 and a disapproval of 54 (a 21-point spread).

Lieberman hasn't said what he'll do in 2012, but Klobuchar is preparing for rivals, including a possible challenge from Tea Party darling Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
