There's been a lot of reporting the last few days about Democrats running away from President Obama.
In a column for the Daily Beast, Patricia Murphy described
Democrats' attempts to distance themselves from the unpopular president:
Of the 10 states where Obama has his lowest approval ratings in the nation, Democrats are defending Senate seats in five, including South Dakota, Montana, Alaska, and Arkansas. Plenty more states where Obama’s ratings hover between 30 percent and 40 percent, like Colorado and Louisiana, feature incumbents defending seats, while in the two states where Democrats most hope to pick up seats, Kentucky and Georgia, Obama’s approval ratings are 35 percent and 45 percent, respectively.
In the Washington Post, Aaron Blake explained
just how bad the problem is for Democrats.
