Back, but down

The President is an undisputed drag on some Democrats this fall, especially in red states such as Arkansas and Louisiana with vulnerable Democratic senators on the ballot.

But the Obama effect is less cut and dried here.

That’s because the President’s numbers, while down, are still better in Wisconsin than they are nationally.

It’s also because the political environment here is unique. This is arguably the only state in America where voters are as polarized – and maybe more so – over their governor than they are over the president.
