On CNN’s Monday broadcast of “New Day,” The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin acknowledged what a lot of people are anticipating – a tough go for the Democrats in this fall’s midterm election.
Martin reacted to a recent Times-CBS poll showing some incumbent red state Democrats struggling, which he tied to President Barack Obama and said it was more likely the Republican Party would find the six elections needed for it to take control of the U.S. Senate.
“[I]t’s a tough year for Democrats in the Senate, John,” Martin said. “Those polls reflect what is happening out there, especially in so-called red America. And the fact is, is that when these polls look at folks who will vote — likely voters, it looks even more grim for Democrats. It’s not a lost cause. The Republicans still feed six seats to get back to the Senate. There is no question at this point, it does look increasingly likely that, you know the GOP is going to find six.”
