Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) has a tough re-election fight in 2018. A new poll shows more Pennsylvanians think he has done a “fair” or “poor” job than a “good” or “excellent” job.
Half of Pennsylvania voters think Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), who’s up for re-election in 2018, has done only a “fair” or “poor” job as U.S. senator, according to a new poll released by Franklin & Marshall College on Thursday.
Exactly 50 percent of voters think Casey is doing a “fair” (33 percent) or “poor” (17 percent) job, compared to only 38 percent who think he’s doing a “good” (28 percent) or “excellent” (10 percent) job.
The poll results could signal trouble for Casey as he heads into a tough re-election fight in 2018.
Unlike some of his vulnerable colleagues who have tried to reach Republicans and Democrats ahead of the 2018 race, Casey has gone after President Trump in an aggressive manner in 2017. He called Trump’s firing of James Comey “Nixonian” this week, and has said that “nothing” gets him to “yes” on fixing Obamacare because Republicans want to repeal it.
Casey’s “poor job” rating is up three percent since February, suggesting some Pennsylvania voters don’t like his approach to the Trump era so far. The Cook Political Report rates the Pennsylvania Senate race “Likely [Democrat]” right now, but that may change with more poll numbers like this.
