Landrieu Takes Hit At Home With Health Law Problem
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A new poll shows support for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana has dropped amid the problem-plagued rollout of the Democrats' health care overhaul.
According to the survey released Thursday by Southern Media and Opinion Research, approval of Landrieu's job performance has deteriorated to 46 percent.
Fifty-four percent of those polled said they'd be less likely to vote for the Democratic senator's re-election next year because of her vote for President Barack Obama's health law.
Pollster Bernie Pinsonat says the election picture is gloomy for Landrieu, but could improve if problems lessen with the health law implementation.
The poll surveyed a random sample of 600 Louisiana voters who cast ballots in at least three elections over the last four years. It had a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
