Poll: Olympia Snowe would lose a primary race to generic conservative in ME
It looks like Olympia Snowe could have a pretty hard time getting nominated for another term in the Senate as a Republican.

There are now more folks in her party who disapprove than approve of Snowe's job performance. 46% of GOP voters think she's doing a bad job to 40% who give her good marks.

Snowe is still pretty popular with the liberal/moderate wing of her party, earning a 64% approval rating from them. But even in Maine 68% of Republicans are conservatives and they give her just a 29% approval rating with a 56% majority disapproving of her.

Asked how they would vote in a primary contest between Snowe and a more conservative challenger, just 31% of likely Republican voters say they would pick Snowe while 59% say they would go for the conservative alternative.

I hope that a club for growth conservative does challenge her and wins--I think that we could then elect a Democrat in ME as long as she rules out switching parties.

1. Great!
Then we'd have another Democrat in the Senate.

2. Or, Barack Obama could have a chat with her and point out Scozzafava
get her vote on health care and help her jump ship to the Dems.
