Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) blamed her poor poll numbers on the Koch Brothers during an interview on Thursday.

A recent Marquette University Law School poll found that only 37 percent of Wisconsin voters approve of Baldwin, which is down from her 40-percent approval in March 2017.

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt asked Baldwin why her poll numbers were so low.

“We’re a terribly polarized state,” Baldwin said. “What I would say also is that Wisconsin has seen more outside spending, more super PAC spending, particularly from the Koch Brothers.”

“These out-of-state special interests think they own Wisconsin, and they’ve been attacking me, and that certainly contributes to how people feel about politics,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin is considered one of the more vulnerable Senate Democrats running for reelection in 2018.
