The Republican Party could face a devastating loss in Texas due to the fact that incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz is not likable, White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said in a closed-door New York City meeting, The New York Times reported Saturday.

An audio recording of the event was provided to The Times and to The Washington Post.

“Do people like you?” Mulvaney asked. “It’s a really important question.”

“There’s a very real possibility we will win a race for Senate in Florida and lose a race in Texas for Senate, O.K.?” Mulvaney said.

“I don’t think it’s likely, but it’s a possibility. How likable is a candidate? That still counts,” he noted.

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
