Concord - Politico today reports that the White House and Senate Democrats are preparing an "extensive" 2014 campaign strategy built around the fact that "hardly any candidates in the most competitive states want President Barack Obama anywhere near them." When asked about this strategy, Senator Jeanne Shaheen "tried to avoid the topic" and said that she "didn't know" if the unpopular president would travel to New Hampshire and campaign for her this year.
"Jeanne Shaheen may try to run from President Obama's disastrous policies and plummeting poll numbers, but she can't hide from the fact that she voted with him 99 percent of the time in 2013. Senator Shaheen has been a rubber stamp for the president's failed agenda and cast the deciding vote to impose ObamaCare on New Hampshire families," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Granite Staters will hold Jeanne Shaheen accountable for her blind support for President Obama in November whether or not he decides to campaign with her in New Hampshire."
According to a recent UNH poll 51% of New Hampshire adults disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president and only 42% approve.
