Green Room

NC Sen: Kay Hagan’s job approval drops to…33 percent

posted at 11:27 am on March 4, 2014 by

The last few times we checked in on Sen. Kay Hagan, she was literally running away from Obamacare questions, and being hoisted by her own petard on reflexive partisan loyalty.  As she said of her predecessor, voting with the president 92 percent of the time (or, in Hagan’s case, 96 percent of the time) “doesn’t work here in North Carolina.  Based on a fresh Elon University poll, It would appear that North Carolina voters agree:

The same poll pegs President Obama’s job approval at (39/51); not only is Hagan’s raw approval rating six points lower than Obama’s, her net approval (-15) is worse, too. Obama lost the state in 2012.  Why has the embattled Senator been so evasive of Obamacare questions?  My hunch is that these numbers have something to do with it:

Hagan holds one of the 14 Senate seats Republicans are targeting in November. The GOP needs to net six of them to regain the majority, which some experts see as eminently achievable.

Looks like they finally figured out that elections on the state level matter. I’ve always known that.

Embrace the suck and prepare for the unemployment line Kay

Craven resignation to allow a Democrat with a better chance to run in 3 … 2 …. 1…

Wow, there are that many teachers in NC?

Burr’s rate isn’t any better. Hopefully both of them will get replaced by someone who leans more to the right.

Side note…those poor folks at Elon didn’t sound happy about the outcomes of the poll on marijuana and SSM, did they?

No worries…… I’m sure the GOP will find a way to lose this seat.

Subheading:
“Thirty-three percent of NC voters polled found to be government parasites, or clueless saps.”

You go, 67%. Do the right thing.

Have to count the liberal nut jobs in Chapel Hill, Asheville and Raleigh

NC Sen: Kay Hagan’s job approval drops to…33 percent (of her Facebook friends)

Registered voters, even worse. I’m hearing whispers of the NC Donks asking her to take a bow … quickly.

Hey NC, dump this Obunglercare supporting, Harry Reid loving womyn

George Soros and his socialist co-conspirators have already started running negative ads in NC about the Republican candidates who are expected to run against their out-of-touch rubber stamp.
The lawless leftists are frightened about losing this seat. Ms. Hag was elected on Oblame-o’s coattails, which he has burned away with his feckless clueless party-all-the-time presidency.
She responds to constituents’ concerns with form letters. She refuses to appear in public at any events in NC. She is a liberal elite who knows better than the rest of us, don’t ya know? She is GONE, GONE GONE and good riddance!

neyney on March 4, 2014 at 12:43 PM

No chance of that. She, like most other elected democrats, is a millionnaire. Oh wait, with Obamarules, she probably IS eligible for unemployment. For 99 weeks.

maryo on March 5, 2014 at 10:38 AM

Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, Charlotte, and Asheville are propping her up.
