Bachmann and Herseth Sandlin

The diverging standings of Stephanie Herseth Sandlin and Michele Bachmann are a pretty good prism into the political landscape right now.

John McCain won both of their districts by 8 points.

They both voted against the health care bill.

They both have opponents with name recognition well under 50%.

They have almost identical approval spreads- +12 for Bachmann, +11 for Herseth Sandlin

But Bachmann leads her likely general election opponent by 18 points and Herseth Sandlin only leads hers by 7.

Tough time to be a Democrat.
