New AP Poll Troubling Sign For Landrieu

More bad polling news for Obama rubber stamp Mary Landrieu. A new Associated Press poll released yesterday shows Republicans up 8 points on the generic ballot, slightly better than the 7 point lead the GOP had this time in 2010. Even more troubling for Landrieu, voters side with Republicans on 7 of the top 9 issues, and after trailing by 7 points with women in their previous survey, the GOP now has a 2 point lead. Not where Democrats like Landrieu want to be.
