I am generally not a supporter of the democratic agenda, it being way too progressive and starry eyed for me.
Democrats of late are distancing themselves from President Obama fearing he will hurt rather than help their election or reelection chances in 2016. Could this mean the democratic party is really more conservative than the President whose whose choice for the democratic nomination in 2016 is Senator Elizabeth Warren, the ultra progressive senator from Massachusetts? Or does it mean the party base is becoming even more progressive and believe (rightly or wrongly)America wants a president more progressive than Obama has been?
With two and a half months until midterms and two years two and a half months until the presidential election a lot can happen and it should be interesting.
At any rate a recent McClatchy-Marist poll reveals some not so good news for the democratic party. If the President is hurting democrats because of his liberal as well as inconsistence policies it is a very good news for republicans going into the 2014 midterm elections.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections that will determine who controls Congress, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
Obama is beset by problems at home and abroad. Just 40 percent of voters approve of the way he’s doing his job, tying his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.
Just 39 percent approve of the way he’s dealing with the economy and only 33 percent approve of how he’s dealing with foreign policy, the worst of his years in office.

Something tells me this could be why President Obama is hitting the links so often and likely keeping the ibuprofen or aleve close at hand.
