Sen. Ben Nelson's (D-Neb.) approval ratings have slid since voting for health reform legislation, a new poll showed Sunday.
48 percent of Nebraskans say they disapprove of the way Nelson, a centrist who provided Democrats with the critical 60th vote for health reform, is handling his job. 42 percent said they approve, according to a poll by Wiese Research Associates conducted for the Omaha-World Herald.
Those numbers mark a slide for Nelson, who won reelection in 2006 with nearly 64 percent of the vote.
Voters' dissatisfaction with Nelson stemmed from his support for healthcare legislation, the World-Herald reported, though it did not report on specific numbers.

call for brown tomorrow and we can work on Nelson when his time comes....
“Get him the hell out of here!” - best line of the year yet.
Sayonara, Ben. And if health care reform goes down you will have slit your own throat for nothing
Can’t he still change his vote to “no” and save himself?
Love these editorial comments. Notice the biggest jerks are always "centrists?"
I don’t understand why the democrats don’t get it; obamacare has made ALL of them toxic. but none of them want to be the senator that drops them to 59 — watch a half dozen of them bolt if (when) brown wins in MA. if they lose that magic 60th vote in the senate, the dam will break.
Nobody likes a traitor, even if he cuts a deal for them.
100 percent concur. Bravo to that lady.
When Scott wins on Tuesday, I recommend we call every RAT up in 2010 and 2012 and tell them, “you are next.”
They ruined my Christmas with their corruption and sleazy action. I intend to pay them back.
His dream 42 percent. More like about 30 percent And 100 percent of Omaha pizza parlor diners
