Pennsylvania's other U.S. Senator is enjoying more popularity in the face of failed legislation.

Republican Pat Toomey's approval rating has hit a new high in the latest Quinnipiac Poll of registered voters.

It's now 48-percent -- the same as Senator Casey.

Also 54-percent of poll respondents think more favorably of Toomey following his failed compromise on expanded background checks for gun buyers.

Twelve percent think less favorably.

The rest had no change in opinion.
