Bad news for Landrieu as Obama's policies take another dive

More bad news for Senator Landrieu as President Obama’s policies are taking another dive. ObamaCare is more unpopular than ever and foreign policy is no longer Obama’s strong point with most Americans disapproving of Obama’s handling of international relations. After voting for President Obama’s agenda 97 percent of the time, Landrieu can’t be too comfortable seeing these numbers. Add in Reid’s do-nothing Senate and you understand why Senator Moran believes the GOP could flip up to 14 seats in November. See the below polling breakdown from RNC Research:
