Will President Obama drag down Senate candidates?
Two years removed from an electoral wave created by President Barack Obama that swept Democrats into wide Congressional majorities, the chief executive's numbers have faltered badly in a number of contested states -- raising concerns that he could be a drag on Democratic candidates this fall.
A new independent poll in Missouri paints a grim picture for the president. Obama's job approval rating stood at just 34 percent with the overall electorate; among independents the numbers were even worse with just 27 percent approving of the job Obama is doing and 63 percent disapproving.
Go deeper into the poll and the numbers don't get any better. With the economy shaping up to be the dominant issue in the campaign across the country this fall, just one in three Missouri voters approved of Obama's handling of it; among independents a whopping 68 percent disapprove of how the president had handled the economy.
"Midterm elections are usually a referendum on the President," said one Democratic pollster granted anonymity to speak candidly. "But I think there are a host of other numbers that are more worrisome -- right direction, lack of economic optimism, the Democrats in Congress having poor numbers and the sharp rise in anti-incumbency."
Elections are far more complex than many people -- including the media (damn media!) -- typically assume and, as a result, it's impossible to quantitatively measure exactly what the Obama effect will be this fall.
But, numbers like the ones in Missouri have to be concerning for Democratic candidates who have to hope Obama's approval ratings improve between now and Nov. 2. Running with a light breeze in your face is one thing; running with a gale force wind blowing against you is quite another.

it's sunday, so it's time for my weekly call to marty lurie's show after the giant's game... i unfuckingloaded on the WORST FANS IN BASEBALL, a total bunch of crybaby chicken littles who think the sky is falling when the giants go 2-4 on an eastern roadtrip and want to tear the team apart, , scour the waiver wire, fire the general manager and just cry cry cry in general...CAPS TO ID MARCEL:IM GOING TO HAVE TOI START LISTENING TO THE LURIES SHOW. JUST TO HEAR THE GREAT WYWD. I WILL GIVE YOU SOME BASEBALL FAN PROPS. I THINKY OU ARE ALLWET ON GIANT FANS BEING "THE WORST".this is a kind of mass psychosis bordering on the kind of hysteria experience in germany during hitler's speeches... people just go out of their minds joing the anvil chorus - and even marty gets dragged in... five weeks ago, they were all weeping and crying that the giants were "only" 41-40 at the halfway mark (on july 4)...DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK THAT THE INTELLIGENT KNWOWLEDGEABLE FANS WHO AGREE WITH YOU AND KNOW DIFFERENT DONT BOTHER CALLING IN EXCEPT YOU?i called in back then to try to snap them out of their INSANITY - pointing out that unlike every other national league team, we had completed all our moves, bringing up "full pocket" posey and the mad bum (and officially ending the ill conceived "todd wellmayer as a part of the rotation" experiment, which cost numerous games), suffering a bit with the the youngsters' growing pains, moved benji molina out (and he is THRIVING in texas) [[BUZZER SOUND- BENJIE MOLINA WAS A RALLY KILLING GUY WHO TRULY HURT THE TEAMS OFFENSE IN THE AGGREGATE. HE WAS AN 8TH PLACE BATTER BUT BOCHY MISPLACED HIM SO HE SAT LIKE A FIREPLUG IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RALLY ALL THE TIME. tEAMS WERE STEALING ON HIM ALOT.. IM GLAD HES GONE JUST SO THE TEAM CAN MOVE ON. WE WERE WHERE WE WERE WITH HIM WAITING FOR HIS OCCASIONAL HR IN THE FOUR SPOT.EVEN HIS DEFENSIVE SKILLS WERE DIMINISHING. HE WAS NOWHERE NEAR WHERE POSEY IS DEFENSIVELY.and getting a decent late inning reliever in chris ray for him, thus being able to move posey from 1st to catcher allowing more versatility - huff at 1st or in left or right; sandoval at 3rd or 1st, ishikawa as the league's best pinch hitter or at 1st), signed the best bargain free agent in baseball, pat burrell, whose homer last week will be replayed for years and getting freddie sanchez back from injury... GOOD STUFFthe giants have picked up a couple of pretty darn good relievers since then and are set to win the division and probably advance to the world series...TRUE TRUEand honestly, today EVERY CALLER was crying the blues...LIKE I SAID NAYSAYERS CONGREGATE ON SPORTSTALK RADIO.I HAVE FOUND MY SELF VERY LONELY IN THE BRIAN SABEAN CAMP FO THE LAST THREE YEARS. LOOK WHAT HES DONE WITH LITTLE TO WORK WITH. AND SOMETIMES THE BEST TRADE IS THE ONE YOU DONT MAKE. I WOULDNT WANT ADAM DUNN FOR BAUMGARNER. IN SHORT FANS HAVE BEEN CONSTANTLY ASKING FOR THAT GUYS HEAD. YET HERE WE ARE WITH A YOUNG AND SOLID TEAM THAT IS GOING TO BE COMPETITIVE FOR YEARS. fINE. BUT I CANT SEE HOW YOU LUMP ALL GIANT FANS IN WITH THE ONES ON SPTKRADIO. W EARE NOW ENTERING THE STRETCH. HOW MANY TIMES THE STADIUM IS PACKED WILL ANSWER THE QUESTION. SOMETIMES IVE BEEN OUT THERE AND ITS MAGICAL. THE FANS ARE NEVER GIVE UP AWESOME. SO WHAT FANS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. I SEE EMPTY STADIUMS ON TELEVIUSED GAMES. I SEE OURS FILLED OR NEARLY FILLED EVERY NIGHT.AS THE PENNANT RACE HEATS UP TOP BOILING ITS GOING TO BE WILD OUT THERE. THOSE ARE THE REAL GIANT FANS.YOU CANTS AY THEY ARE HO HUM AT THE PARK.because the giants lost 3 of 4 in atlanta?... hell, we SHOULD lose three of four there because we very rarely play in that kind of heat and humidity and they do it ALL THE TIME...I AGREE. IM GLAD OUR FOUR GAME SCHEDULE IN ATLANTA IS OVER AND WERE WHERE WE ARE.even so, had sandoval hustled in the first game (last thursday), the giants would have won that game and split...WE WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN AS LUCKY THE NEXT NIGHT IN THE GIFT GAMEthe giants are SO set up to win six of their next seven and be in first place by this time next week...even if the series ended today, they would be in the playoffs as a wiild card...and every single caller is moaning the blues...giants fans - worst in baseballEVEN THOUGH YOU ARE WRONG i FIRMLY BELIEVE YOU ARE ABSOILUTELY ENTITLED TO BE WRONG.
