Updated Poll Numbers - Nebraska's View of Ben Nelson

The news is not good for Ben Nelson.  Here are the updated numbers for the Senator:

34% very unfavorable view
42% say he is too supportive of President Obama's agenda
61% disapprove of President Obama's job performance
65% feel that tax payer funds should not be used for abortion
17% approve of deal he made in the healthcare bill for Medicaid funding
64% disapprove of the healthcare reform bill from the senate
62% believe the legislation will raise costs
56% believe the legislation will dimish quality of care

What should make Senator Nelson take the most pause is:

Gov. Dave Heineman 61%
Senator Nelson 30%.
The Governor has yet to announce that he is running for the seat. 

In the same poll, they were asked if Sen. Nelson blocked healthcare the numbers are as follows:

Gov. Dave Heineman 47%
Senator Nelson 37%
20% of people said they would support Nelson if he switches his vote to block healthcare. 

Luckily for him he doesn't face the voters until 2012.  I wonder if he is counting on people forgetting before then?

If the photo showed his hands, they would be red with the blood of innocents that this 'healthcare' bill will murder.
