    get a threshold of turnout they'll win enough of the Senate races to retain control of the US Senate.  In red states, Obama's approval rating (or that of any Dem President) has very little to do with how Democrats perform.  Savvy politicians like Pryor and Landrieu will win because they generally have favorable personal ratings.  Red state voters are also going through a re-think of previously held positions (gay marriage, health care...even guns to some extent) and are more 'gettable' for a white southern Democrat.  The Democratic Party will have their A game together where it matters by the time voting starts.
