Democrats Worried About Obama Factor

"Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama's sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law," the New York Times reports.

"The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party's vulnerable congressional candidates."

David Plouffe told Bloomberg, "This is a screaming siren that the same problems that afflicted us" in 2010 when Democrats lost control of the House "could face us again."
