ObamaCare And Obama Are Dragging Kay Hagan Down

Today, Public Policy Polling unveiled a new North Carolina Senate poll that found 49% of North Carolina respondents disapprove of Kay Hagan’s job performance as a U.S. Senator. Likewise, 53% of North Carolinians disapprove of President Obama’s job performance.

In addition to terrible approval numbers, PPP also found that 69% of North Carolinians think that ObamaCare has at least been “somewhat unsuccessful.” For context, 49% of North Carolinians think that ObamaCare has been “very unsuccessful” while only 25% believe that ObamaCare has been at least “somewhat successful.”

ObamaCare is, and will continue to be, a major problem for Hagan since she misled North Carolinians that they will be able to keep their current health insurance plans under ObamaCare.

HAGAN: “And between 2001 and 08 the number of uninsured in North Carolina increased from 1.1 million to 1.4 million people, without action this number is going to continue to grow. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee crafted a bill that ensures that people who like their insurance and their doctors keep them. They also expand access to health insurance for those without it and slows down the skyrocketing cost of health care. Three critical components that President Obama called for in his speech to congress two weeks ago.”
