Obama: 'This Is Probably the Worst Possible Group of States for Democrats Since Eisenhower'

Tuesday during an interview with WNPR in Connecticut, President Barack Obama said “this election cycle this is probably the worst possible group of states for Democrats since Dwight Eisenhower.”

Obama said, “There’s no doubt that when you look at the Senate races, because of the fact that only a third of the Senate is up at any given time it tends to be a little arbitrary which seats are really going to be contested, which aren’t. So, for example, in this election cycle this is probably the worst possible group of states for Democrats since Dwight Eisenhower. There are a lot of states that are being contested where they just tend to tilt Republican and Democrats are competitive but they tend to tilt that way.”
