Poll: Vulnerable Democrat Senator's Disapproval Rating Jumps After Obamacare's Rollout

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) is underwater, according to a new Elon University poll.

In the latest Elon University Poll, 37% of registered voters polled in North Carolina said they approved of how she is doing her job vs. 43.5% who said they disapproved. That a drop of 1 percentage point from her approval rating in September.

The bad news is that the percentage of N.C. registered voters who said they disapproved of her went up 8.5 percentage points since September.

Bad news? I don’t see any bad news in that.

Hagan voted for Obamacare when it passed in 2010. Yesterday, she voted in favor of Harry Reid’s nuclear option. She has voted for every Democrat power grab of the Obama era. North Carolina has trended red since Obamacare was passed. The GOP field to oppose her next year is crowded and includes the current speaker of North Carolina’s House, Thom Tillis.
