Obamacare Looks Like a Loser in Murtha’s Old District

This preview of a poll in John Murtha’s old district is pretty eye-opening:

Only 28% of voters in the district express support for it with 59% opposed. Even Democrats there support it by just a 43/39 margin. Obama’s overall approval rating in the district is 33%, with 57% of voters disapproving of him. It’s hard to imagine any Democrat winning an open seat this year where the President is that unpopular but it’s still a close race.

This was the only district that voted for John Kerry and John McCain.

Tim Burns, the Republican running in the special election in Pennsylvania’s 12th district, recently chatted with NRO.
