Poll: Nelson Approval Rating Tanks in Nebraska

Via Ed Morrisey, I see this new poll from the Omaha World Herald. Evidently, the “Cornhusker Kickback” didn’t even do much good for Ben Nelson back in his home state:

Nelson, who once enjoyed some of the highest job performance marks in the U.S. Senate, has now seen his approval rating dip below 50 percent in Nebraska, according to The World-Herald Poll. …

In the survey, Nelson’s job approval rating was 42 percent and his disapproval rating was 48 percent. By comparison, Republican Sen. Mike Johanns of Nebraska, who voted against the bill, had a 63 percent job-approval rating. …

It’s clear the bulk of Nebraskans’ dissatisfaction with Nelson rests with his health care vote.

More than 60 percent of those surveyed said they opposed the Senate health care bill. A majority said they opposed Nelson’s vote for the bill. About one-third favored his vote.
