Are Democrat incumbents in trouble? While a pro-Democratic Party 
conducted by James Carville and Stan Greenberg's 
Corps says no, Kevin Drum says otherwise at the liberal 
Noel Sheppard said Friday.

Although the GOP brand has taken a beating thanks largely to constant 
propaganda and false reporting from liberal networks, Drum said that 
when one looks at approval/disapproval of actual members of Congress, 
"the picture turns sharply."

"In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 
points, from +8 approval to +3 disapproval. In Republican districts, 
incumbent approval has gone down only 4 points. You see the same 
results when they ask a question about warmth of feeling toward 
incumbents: It's down 7 points in Republican districts and 9 points 
in Democratic districts," he said.

"This isn't good news for Democrats," he added.

Drum said that attitudes toward the GOP have "taken a bigger hit" 
than attitudes toward Democrats but, he added, "attitudes toward 
actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that's 
what matters."

He also said one slide shows voters in GOP districts "are more eager 
for their representatives to work with President Obama than voters in 
Democratic districts."

"I have no idea what to make of this," he said. "In fact, it's so 
strange that it makes me wonder if there's something wrong with this poll."

The poll was conducted just 
days after the partial government shutdown ended. Since then, voters 
realized the administration lied when it said Americans could keep 
their insurance if they like it, and voters also learned that Senate 
voted against a GOP resolution that would have let Americans keep 
their insurance. Moreover, they learned that Democrats have known for 
years that Obama's healthcare promises weren't true.

Now, some of those same Democrats are engaging in election-year spin 
and damage control, trying to stave off an electoral defeat.

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., for example, 
she will propose legislation to ensure Americans can keep their 
current insurance even if it may not comply with 
even though she voted against a similar GOP measure in 2010.

The massive 
of the Obamacare website, the ongoing 
put out by Obama and his allies in the Democratic Party and the 
prospect that some 93 million Americans will lose their coverage, has 
hurt the president and his party, and was not likely factored into the poll.
