September Senate Approval Numbers from Survey USA
Bad news for Coleman who hangs around the mid-40's in extremely vulnerable territory, again very near a net-negative approval. Especially bad news when you hold Coleman's 46-45 next to Senator Amy Klobuchar's 62-32.
These are the most shocking new numbers. Domenici's steady fall seemed to have levelled off in the low-50's. Are these atrocious numbers just an outlying blip or a sign of more pointed disapproval? We won't know until next month's numbers establish a new trend or evidence that it was just a blip. But very intriguing.
McConnell continues to hover right around that 50% danger mark.
After spending time flirting with the 50% mark, Roberts' approval has shifted back up into traditionally safer territory.
Not much new with Sessions. If he stays above 55%, he should be very comfortable.
Smith spends his fifth consecutive month with an approval under 50% and his fourth consecutive month with a disapproval above 40%. Classicly vulnerable.
Harkin keeps the head above 50%. Probably not low enough to tempt Tom Latham to gamble his House seat on a Senate challenge.
Kerry also stays above 50%. I wonder how low his approval would have to go before the NRSC committed funds to Massachusetts?
