Seeing President Obama's mixed results in recent campaign endeavors, the National Republican Senatorial Committee today launched an online poll, inviting supporters to vote on where Obama should travel next.


"We know every Republican in the country is looking forward to the President and his party showing up in their state to stump for Democrats. It brings attention to the failed Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda of the Washington Democrats, and gives the people a stark choice. When they see the President and his party up close, they choose Republicans," NRSC Executive Director Rob Jesmer wrote in an e-mail to supporters.

Some harsh words, but they're grounded in reality. With the White House lending a hand to two Democrats who may fall in primaries tomorrow night, here's a rundown from Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson on Obama's efforts thus far in campaigning for Democratic candidates:
Obama has been publicly involved in just a few races during his time in office, but in those contests he has a mixed record at best. Obama helped fundraise for Reps. Scott Murphy (D-NY) and Bill Owens (D-NY), who both won special elections, but he also made high-profile appearances for NJ Gov. Jon Corzine (D), VA state Sen. Creigh Deeds (D) and MA AG Martha Coakley, all of whom lost their races by wider than expected margins.

In advance of Tuesday's primary elections, the admin has stuck its neck out again, and for 2 contenders who might not still be standing on Wednesday. Obama fundraised for Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) in the fall, and VP Joe Biden has campaigned for Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) in Little Rock. Both face tough fights for the Dem nominations in their respective states.
