Barbara Boxer’s Approval Is at 41 Percent?

Survey USA released a ton of results Friday, asking voters whether they approve of the president, their governor, and their senators. A couple of results that jumped out at me:

California

Sen. Feinstein: 46 / 44 [approve / disapprove]

Sen. Boxer: 41 / 48

Boxer’s numbers are pretty lousy for someone running for reelection next year.

Iowa

Pres. Obama: 46 / 48

Sen. Grassley: 50 / 40

Sen. Harkin: 44 / 46

Gov. Culver: 41 / 49

I thought Iowans were going to turn against Grassley in droves for his “death panels” comment.

Minnesota

Pres. Obama: 55 / 40

Sen. Klobuchar: 64 / 31

Sen. Franken: 49 / 44

Gov. Pawlenty: 45 / 52

Pawlenty’s a bit low, but maybe the voters there are just tired of him.

Missouri

Pres. Obama: 44 / 54

Sen. Bond: 45 / 45

Sen. McCaskill: 50 / 43

Gov. Nixon: 51 / 38

Miserable numbers for Obama here, a state he barely lost.

Virginia

Pres. Obama: 49 / 48

Sen. Webb: 48 / 39

Sen. Warner: 61 / 30

Gov. Kaine: 44 / 46

Well, I guess we know why Obama’s not coming to Deeds’s rescue in Virginia.
