After Congressman Bob Etheridge (D-NC) manhandles a college student who asked him whether or not he supports the Obama agenda now finds himself trailing in the latest poll taken in North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District.

WTVD-TV in Raleigh-Durham, NC reports that his Republican opponent, Renee Ellmers, is now slightly ahead:

The conservative leaning Civitas Institute released a flash poll Thursday that shows Etheridge slightly trailing Republican challenger Renee Ellmers.

Civitas said the poll of 400 registered voters in the 2nd Congressional District shows Ellmers leads Etheridge 39 percent to 38 percent. Twelve percent said they would vote for Libertarian Tom Rose and 11 percent said they were undecided.

The margin of error was plus or minus 5 percent – putting the candidates in a statistical dead heat.

I guess his constituents prefer to see their Representative in Congress react to questions in a more professional manner.  You know we all have bad days, but most of us don’t manhandle people who annoy us.  So he’s right that “it’s no excuse.”  So he shouldn’t even have said that.

I think just answering their question would have been the better route to go.

  1. Joe Barton really needs to engage his brain before his mouth. I say we set up a meeting with Bob Etheridge so Bob can slap some sense into him.
