The unemployment rate and difficult job market really ought to concern Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado . . . because he looks set to join those ranks in the not-too-distant future.
First, there’s his primary fight against Andrew Romanoff. Then Bennet’s most likely general election foe is Jane Norton; she leads him 48 percent to 39 percent. (She leads Romanoff 44 percent to 42 percent.)
Obama held a fundraiser to help out Bennet recently, but that may not be much help; 46 percent “strongly disapprove” of the president’s performance with another 10 percent “somewhat disapproving” of his performance.
