BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, is more popular than ever in Vermont.

The former presidential candidate tops the charts in a new survey looking at approval ratings across the country. He gets 87 percent approval among Vermonters, the highest of any U.S. senator.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, is not far behind. He's the fifth most popular senator with 66 percent approval in Vermont.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, also made the top 10. He's in eighth with 64 percent approval.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, didn't make the top 10. She gets 55 percent approval.

And neither of New Hampshire's senators made the top 10 either. Republican Kelly Ayotte, who's in a tight senate race with Democrat Maggie Hassan, gets a 58 percent approval rating. Democrat Jeanne Shaheen got 48 percent.
