Oh, no! Another Democratic senator in possible election trouble for 2012.
And from California already?
A new Field Poll just released this morning brings news that California’s Sen. Dianne Feinstein is — how can we put this in a liberal kind of way? — approved by 41% of voters who want to see her reelected next year.
Unfortunately for her, more voters (fully 44%) disapprove of her continued employment in the U.S. Senate after 2012.
In blue California that makes for about a magnitude 5.2 quake.
The same poll finds that only 41% approve of Feinstein’s job in Washington, while 39% disapprove.
That 41 approval number is the lowest the former mayor has ever had in her 20 years of no longer really living in California.
Another recent Field Poll showed many Californians are falling out of love with the teleprompter guy from Chicago. His California approval has slid below 50% for the first time ever, down to 46%.
That’s a decline of about two points per month recently.
Is his slide now corroding the election prospects of even such party stalwarts as Feinstein?
