Slipping polls

Has the Obama administration competently and effectively managed the government? A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds a majority of American voters says no -- including about a third of Democrats.

A 58-percent majority says the White House has not been competent at managing the federal government. Some 32 percent of Democrats join 67 percent of independents and 84 percent of Republicans in holding that view.

It's the slide with independents that's interesting to me. If the middle is running away from Obama, you may continue to see Democrat Senate candidates run away from the Administration.  That could force some internal politics that could be exploited in the waning days of this Congress.
