Looks like Pete Domenici (R-NM) is in trouble. His approval rating in the last SUSA poll is at 41%, the first time that Domenici has ever been below 50%. Obviously the US Attorney mess hasn't helped him, nor has his apparent habit of wandering around the Capitol Building in his pajamas.

An approval rating of 41% is especially worrying to Domenici because there isn't a major candidate yet from the Democratic side to take him on. I really thought that Tom Udall would have jumped in the race by now, though he probably wants to see if Domenici is going to retire or if this poll is more than a fluke.

If Domenici does retire, Heather Wilson is rumored to run for the seat. That would be fun to watch, since there's little chance she's going to keep her House seat next year. You usually don't win Senate seats when everyone knows you're running away from an election loss to the lower house.

My take on it all is that Domenici is old and he's tired. They should let the poor guy retire, and if there was a strong Republican candidate, they would. I hope he's going to be able to get out of the Senate before he suffers some sort of debilitating breakdown.
