Barack Obama and Obamacare Coattails, Um I Mean Anchor … Public Policy Polling Says Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) Poll Lead for 2014 Election Gone
Hmm, so DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinks that Democrats can run on Obamacare as a positive thing, eh?
Not only does Obamacare not have coattails for Democrats, it is an anchor that threatens to bring down the Democrat party worse than the shellacking they suffered during the 2010 midterms. Democrats are trying to distance themselves from Obamacare, but they certainly did not have a problem voting for it in lockstep and ramming it down the throats of Americans in a partisan manner. HR 3590, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 60-39, one of those Democrat votes was Kay Hagen. passed in the Senate However, actions have consequences. The latest Democrat to feel the backlash of the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare and Americans losing their insurance, even though Barack Obama promised they could keep it if they like it is incumbent Democrat Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina. According to a recent poll from the Democrat polling firm PPP, Hagen’s lead for her 2014 senatorial election has all but vanished against all GOP candidates.
Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) is near the top of national Republicans’ target list for 2014 — and a new poll shows her lead over her potential GOP challengers has all but evaporated.
Against state House Speaker Thom Tillis, Hagan leads by only 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. She leads the Rev. Mark Harris by 2 points as well, 43 percent to 41 percent, and nurse Heather Grant by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.
Hagan trails physician Greg Brannon, the Rand Paul-endorsed candidate in the race, by 1 point: He leads 44 percent to 43 percent.
That’s a huge difference from PPP’s September poll, which gave Hagan leads of anywhere from 12 points to 17 points against all possible GOP challengers.
Hagan’s approval ratings are underwater in the poll: 49 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job she’s doing, compared with 44 percent who approve.
The poll also suggests she could be suffering from the implementation of Obamacare: 69 percent of those surveyed said the law’s rollout has been unsuccessful so far, compared with 25 percent who say it’s been a success.
All of s sudden Sen. Kay Hagan is concerned for her political power and calls for probe of healthcare website as political support drops.
Now it would appear that the Democrats chickens are coming home to roost on their blind vote for Obamacare as none of them read the monstrous bill, instead they took Nancy Pelosi’s foolish advice that “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it” (VIDEO). Hagen’s poll numbers are not only being affected by her underwater job approval numbers, Obama’s job approval numbers have cratered and the popularity of Obamacare and its implementation is at 69% unsuccessful. Keep in mind, those polled evenly voted for Obama and Romney in the 2012 presidential election.

In 2014 there are 21 Democrat US Senators up for reelection, many of which are in Red/swing states. Those most in trouble have been clambering for Obama to fix the Obamacre train wreck as they fear for their political lives.
