A new report by KSTP
(Minneapolis/St. Paul) acknowledged that keeping Minnesota Democrats like Al Franken in office will be a “big challenge” come November.
The Minneapolis/St. Paul newscast detailed that a new poll shows a clear majority disapproves
of President Obama and Larry Jacobs from the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs noted that Franken’s ties to the unpopular President are “possibly fatal.”
KSTP reports that the last thing Franken needs is a “drag on his re-election bid” like President Obama.
This will likely send shockwaves through the Franken campaign. After all, Al Franken has been one of President Obama’s most loyal proxies in the Senate – voting a perfect 100% of the time with Obama. And, while Al Franken celebrates Tax Day
, it’s worth highlighting his record as a tax-and-spend liberal. Franken has even gone so far as to vote for ObamaCare, which included a wildly unpopular 2.3% medical device tax
. When given the opportunity, Franken doubled down voting NO on an amendment to remove the tax.
