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?
