In Passing

A little nervous, Evan?

ABC News/The Note (via Hot Air, via Ace)
Even before the votes are counted, Senator Evan Bayh is warning fellow Democrats that ignoring the lessons of the Massachusetts Senate race will “lead to even further catastrophe” for their party.

“There’s going to be a tendency on the part of our people to be in denial about all this,” Bayh told ABC News, but “if you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call, there’s no hope of waking up.”
Sounds worried, doesn't he?
D’ya suppose his numbers might have anything to do with it?
From The Hoosierpundit):
I’ve now heard from a couple of people of a new poll of Bayh's numbers placing him in the low fifties in approval ratings and the high thirties in disapproval ratings.

So ponder Evan Bayh
s approval trendline for a moment:

May:  74%
November:  63%
January:  50%-55%

And the disapproval trendline:

May:  23%
November:  31%
January:  35%-40%

That can’t be good news for the army of consultants Evan Bayh is paying for with his warchest flush with a gazillion dollars from Washington insiders and special interests.

In a bit over six months, Evan Bayh’s approval rating has been slashed by a third and has fallen by almost 25%. His disapproval numbers have almost doubled.

1 Yeah, I listened to the clip this AM of Bayh trying to be everybody's guy. Ha!

2 Bayh will try to play both sides against the middle one too many times, and he will be crushed.
