Public Policy Polling reports today (Hat tip: Ralston Flash) that “John Ensign trails every Democrat on the farm in hypothetical reelection contests next year but Republicans have a very good chance at keeping his seat if Dean Heller ends up as the party nominee instead. Ensign’s approval rating is only 35% with 50% of voters disapproving of him.
“His numbers are especially atrocious with independents… Even more troubling for Ensign is that just 26% of voters in the state want him to seek reelection while 59% wish he would step aside. . . . So Republican prospects for holding onto the seat would be pretty dire if Ensign remained the party’s standard bearer.”
Dear John, we don’t love you anymore. Please away and leave us alone?
