DeFazio: 'Fight' Isn't In Obama's Vocabulary

That hasn't proven the most effective message to sell this year. Obama's approval rating in Oregon is just 44 percent, according to Gallup data compiled through the first half of the year. That number is lower than the 47 percent of Oregonians who identify themselves as Democrats. Oregon used to be a state on the GOP's wish list, but it hasn't voted for a Republican for president since Ronald Reagan. So if the state's electoral votes are as up for grabs as DeFazio suggests, President Obama has more to worry about than just the Beaver State.
