A new CQ vote study shows vulnerable Senate Democrats almost always voted to support the president in 2014 — a fact that has been instantly seized upon by Republicans, given that Obama’s approval rating is languishing in the low 40s nationally and lower still in several battleground states.
As senior writer Shawn Zeller writes in this week’s CQ Weekly cover story, Democrats who have been distancing themselves from Obama on the campaign trail not in votes on the Senate floor................................
Here are where the Democrats and Republicans on the October edition of Roll Call’s 10 Most Vulnerable Senators of 2014 rank in terms of their roll call voting support for Obama’s agenda:
Mark Udall of Colorado: 99 percent
Kay Hagan of North Carolina: 99 percent
Jeff Merkley of Oregon: 99 percent
Al Franken of Minnesota: 99 percent
Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire: 98 percent
Mark Begich of Alaska: 98 percent
Mark Pryor of Arkansas: 97 percent
Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana: 96 percent
Mitch McConnell of Kentucky: 60 percent
Pat Roberts of Kansas: 49 percent
Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., were the only senators on the ballot to score a perfect 100 percent score, although Durbin’s seat is rated Safe Democrat and Warner’s Democrat Favored by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
