McConnell: Obama Dividing Democrats

Friday, 03 Dec 2010 03:12 PM

While Republicans are finding a way to come together over significant issues, Democrats are splintering. And Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Barack Obama’s low approval rating explains much of the Democrats’ infighting, The Hill reports.

obama, divides, democrats"The currency of the realm in this town is the president's job approval. If that is below 50 percent, his party tends to fracture," McConnell tells conservative Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin. "Rumors tell us that is what is going on today."

Obama’s approval rating has stood below 50 percent for months and now registers 45 percent in Gallup’s daily tracking poll.

With so many of the 23 Democrats facing re-election in 2012 vulnerable to Republican challenges, they may be more willing to cooperate with the GOP next year, McConnell says.
