As my colleagues Alex Roarty and Beth Reinhard wrote yesterday
, the president's problems are spreading fast, with other Democratic congressmen similarly running away from the president.
Will this race stay this close?, If labor and liberal activists now see problems and will help get out turnout, it should boost Weprin. Weprin has a three-to-one cash on hand advantage in the race's final week, but if Turner can even keep it close (and the poll should help with his fundraising), it will speak more for the anger against Washington that's out there -- even in New York City.
But the core problem will remain, and is a bigger problem for Democrats seeking to regain the House and retain the Senate -- Obama very well may be more of a hindrance than he was in 2010, and that's causing heartburn for many Democratic strategists.
