The president’s approval numbers are tanking (we’re officially at George W. Bush levels, guys) so it only makes sense that a vulnerable Senate Democrat who (a) hails from North Carolina and (b) voted for Obamacare would be feeling the pinch at the polls right about now. But let's put aside the botched rollout for a second. Millions of Americans are losing their coverage and/or doctors, and they’re not happy about it. But what can ordinary citizens even do about it, you ask? They can make their voices heard at the ballot box.
And they’re already starting to:
Sen. Kay Hagan's (D-N.C.) lead has all but disappeared in a new poll, a sign that ObamaCare's struggles and attack ads airing in the state are taking a toll on her standing.
Hagan leads North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tilis (R) by 44 percent to 42 percent in a new survey from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, a precipitous drop from a 15-point lead she held in a September poll from the same firm.
She holds similarly narrow leads against the other Republicans in the field, and actually trails Tea Party candidate Greg Brannon (R) by 44 to 43 percent. Her approval rating has stayed steady, with 44 percent approving of her now, but her disapproval rating has spiked from 39 percent in September to 49 percent today.
