Democratic strategist James Carville says he wouldn't likely advise Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu to take President Barack Obama with her as she campaigns for a fourth term this year.

A new AP-GfK Poll shows 59 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama's handling of his job, a record high for the poll, so few Democrats, especially those in red states, have been enlisting the president's help.

Landrieu was one of several Democrats who were accused by Republicans of getting deals for their states in exchange for their support of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Those deals, dubbed the "Louisiana Purchase" in Landrieu's case and the "Cornhusker Kickback" in the case of Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, helped pass the bill, but have come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats such as Landrieu.

Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly on Thursday reminded Carville that the two have a bet on whether Landrieu will win re-election. O'Reilly thinks she will lose.

O'Reilly asked Carville whether he would advise Landrieu to campaign with Obama.

"Probably not," he answered.

Landrieu seems to be taking his unpaid advice. A week ago, when Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius was in New Orleans to tout Obamacare, Landrieu was almost 200 miles away giving an unrelated speech in Lake Charles.
