North Carolina’s GOP was quick to spread NBC News political director Chuck Todd’s remarks on The Today Show on Friday morning saying N.C. Sen. Kay Hagan is one of the “red-state Democrats” prompting party concern about the impact of federal health insurance problems on their re-election campaigns.

“Whether it’s Mary Landrieu in Louisiana, Mark Pryor in Arkansas, Kay Hagan in North Carolina, these are the folks that are driving this nervousness. They’re extremely nervous and they think that health care could cost them control of the Senate if this rollout doesn’t improve very quickly.”

Todd said the network’s polling shows the president’s popularity hitting an all-time low, which means it’s even worse in some Republican-dominated states.
