Chafee In Trouble
Okay, so Survey USA has done a nationwide survey of approval ratings for Senators. And the results aren’t all that great for Lincoln Chafee (Rino-RI).
I single him out, because his results are interesting, not because he’s among the lowest in the poll – he’s not. But take a look:
Overall: 53% Approval – 38% Disapprove
Among Republicans: 39%-55%
You don’t normally see the Dems and Indies giving high approvals… to a Republican! Moreover, it’s quite unusual to see a Senator’s own party disapprove of his work.
My guess is that Chafee’s re-election bid will be won or lost in the Republican primary, not in November.
