In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday, Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Carol Lee offered some anecdotal proof that President Barack Obama is not faring well among voters in Iowa.
That according to Lee is part of the reason why Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Jodi Ernst is faring better against her Democratic rival, Bruce Braley.
“I talked to a bunch of voters at that event, and some of them coming to that event had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and had regretted voting for him,” Lee said. “The voters there are definitely down on the president and really looking for somebody different, and [Ernst] seems to be tapping into some kind of sentiment there and it looks like she’s actually going to wind up winning.”
Also in that segment, “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed to the double standard on the so-called “war on women” when it comes to Democrats compared to Republicans.
“If a Republican said that, it would be over,” Brzezinski said. “Can you imagine a female candidate saying that about a male? I can’t. It just wouldn’t happen.”
