As the midterm elections approach and President Barack Obama's approval rating falls, pollster Chris Wilson of WPA Opinion Research says Republicans didn't run away from President George W. Bush in 2006 the way Democrats are running from Obama now.

"You can certainly point back to 2006, when Republicans didn't exactly welcome President George W. Bush into their districts," Wilson told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

However, "they didn't run from him the way you're seeing Democrats do that," he explained.

"It's gotten to the point where [North Carolina Sen.] Kay Hagan, whenever President Obama went to North Carolina . . . last week, she actually held a press conference before he got there to be critical of him and his role in some of the things that he had done, specifically his handling of foreign policy, [and] some of the issues specific to Obamacare and its impact on small business," Wilson said.

"I can't think of any point in which . . . I've been involved in politics that you've seen a party run away from their president, and in fact almost disown their president and denounce their president, the way you are seeing a lot of Democrats, particularly on the Senate side, do," he added.
