“I’m your typical swing voter,” says Lee Slaughter, a Las Vegas-based health care professional whose insurer refused to cover all of the care she needed for her broken hips. “I voted for Republicans for president, and I voted for President Obama. I also voted for Senator Harry Reid many times. But in 2010, I’ll only be voting on one issue. I’m watching to see if Harry Reid is strong and effective enough as a leader to pass a public health insurance option into law. Here in Nevada the majority wants it. Senator Reid, these insurance companies cannot be trusted with out lives. Nevadans want the choice of a public option.”

HuffingtonPost–Voters in swing states say they are more likely to re-elect Senators who support the Clean Energy Jobs Bill, according to a new poll.
The poll, conducted by the political consulting agency Benenson Strategy Group, interviewed 814 registered voters in 16 swing states.
60 percent of respondents said they were much more likely to re-elect a Senator who supported the energy bill that passed the House in June 2009. Conversely, 52 percent said they would be less likely to vote for Senators who vote against the bill.
