Baucus Approval Rating Dips in New Poll
Associated Press, ^ | 11-16-09

Posted on 11/16/2009 8:58:42 PM PST by george76

U.S. Sen. Max Baucus' approval rating is taking a dip following a high profile push for health care reform.

A survey released Monday shows that just 44 percent approve of the job performance ... That is down from two years ago when the same Montana State University-Billings poll showed Baucus with a 64 percent approval rating.

The poll also found that a vast majority support the hunting of wolves in the state — and that most oppose any effort to legalize marijuana in the state.

Here in Los Angeles we've got a !#$%@#% marijuana dispensary on what seems like every street corner. People don't even need a prescription, they just walk in and tell the doctor who works in the clinic that they're having migraines and the doctor will write them a "recommendation" on the spot.

May Max get retired by the voters of Montana for his groveling and gross incompetence.

We The People vow to scrape the feces out of the sewer that is the US Congress. What a glorious day that will be with God smiling down upon us while blessing our good work — saving this nation from treasonous corrupt politicians.

Baucus has spent his entire life in politics, yet says he’s a 6th generation rancher. He has the Jackson Hole crowd to vote for him. That Schweitzer is a CA trial lawyer transplant, somewhat like Ted Turner that have enough money to buy an office. The good citizens of MT should send them back home. PS The good state of MT is considering the lease of Coaldeposits that would bring $ millions into their state, how do these good Dems reconcile their views?

“He has the Jackson Hole crowd to vote for him.”

Of course you know Jackson Hole is in the adjacent state, Wyoming?

We got the same problem here. We have these stores on just about every street corner where people can buy vodka and whiskey! They don’t even need a doctor’s “recommendation!”

Baucus needs to go home to Montana next time he is up for reelection. Max - we don’t need no stinkin’ Health Care bill (aka “freedom-robbing bureaucracy”).

I work in land advertising. When talking to brokers in MT, I was really taken aback by how snobby the brokers in the state were. Then I realized that a good bit of them are transplants from the west coast. I was also surprised how many of them are lawyers. I feel sorry for the folks of MT.

Unfortunatly Montana has been discovered by California. Their invasion has destroyed a lot of Montana that I have known for the 38 years.
