Posted on 01/15/2014 1:56:15 AM PST by Libloather
Obamacare appears to be sinking Democratic North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagans approval ratings and her standing against Republican rivals for her job, a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday showed.
In the latest poll, Hagan has a 39 percent approval rating, with 49 percent disapproving, a four percentage point slide from last month, and that in a hypothetical race, shes virtually in a dead heat against all of her potential GOP rivals.
"This race continues to look like a toss up, but Hagan could definitely use a change of topic from Obamacare to help get her numbers out of this rut," the Democratic pollsters Tom Jensen said.

Get that leftist bitch out of Jesse’s seat.
It’s only going to get worse.
As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act :
OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
SEN. KAY HAGAN (D-N.C.) on ObamaCare: People who have insurance theyre happy with can keep it We need to support the private insurance industry so that people who have insurance theyre happy with can keep it while also providing a backstop option for people without access to affordable coverage. (Republicans Vent As Other Compromise Plans Get Aired, National Journals Congress Daily, 6/18/09)
NRO REPORT----Obama will speak at North Carolina State U on Wednesday to push his economic agenda, BUT Hagan wont be in attendance potentially signaling that the red-state Dem is distancing herself from the president as she faces a tough reelection.
The most recent polls from December 2013 show Hagan in closes races with potential Republican challengers, even trailing some candidates.
While most representatives make a point to be present when the president of their party comes in to town, a Hagan spokesperson said the first-term senator will stay in Washington because the Senate is in session.
BACKSTORY: In 2011, Hagan attended a presidential visit to North Carolina even though the Senate was in session. Hagan was present at President Obamas visit to Asheville on October 17, 2011 as part of the presidents bus tour to push his job plan. Even though she was in North Carolina, Senate records show she was still able to make it back to Washington in time to cast votes at 5:31 p.m. Additionally, Hagan was interviewed live by MSNBCs Chris Matthews from the Capitol that same evening.
She won’t be seen near Obama until election day.
She wont be seen near Obama until election day.
“...until election day”??????” I doubt seriously she will be seen with him on that day fo sho.
Yes she will. Make sure this gets passed around:
Make sure this letter defending the Green Energy slush fund gets passed around as well:

Thank you for contacting me regarding Solyndra. I greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts on this important issue.
Solyndra was a solar panel manufacturer founded in 2005. In September 2011, two years after receiving a $535 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy, the company filed for bankruptcy. The Treasury Department is currently investigating the loan guarantee approved for the Solyndra project, as is the Department of Energys inspector general.
Like you, I believe we must carefully monitor how taxpayer dollars are spent. This is particularly important at a time when the annual federal budget deficit exceeds $1 trillion. While I share your concerns about the loan guarantee awarded to Solyndra, I do not believe this incident is necessarily indicative of the entire Loan Guarantee Program, which has helped many important energy projects move forward in these difficult economic times. Projects that have benefited from the Loan Guarantee Program include nuclear power plants, biofuels, and smart grid technologies.
As this matter is further investigated, I will be sure to keep your thoughts and concerns in mind.
Again, thank you for contacting my office. It is truly an honor to represent North Carolina in the United States Senate, and I hope you will not hesitate to contact me in the future should you have any further questions or concerns.
Hopefully he’ll just tweet “Good-bye & Good luck! Nice owning ya!” on the day after the election!
