CBS News reports:
Public campaigning gives way to the privacy of the voting booth today with control of the Senate, the makeup of the House and three dozen governorships at stake.
President Obama, his approval ratings low, isn’t on the ballot midway through his second term. But even he said his policies are, and Republicans rushed to agree.
“The president’s policies have just flat-out failed,” House Speaker John Boehner said Monday, campaigning for a 13th term in Congress and hoping for two more years as top House leader. He and other Republicans vowed to change Mr. Obama’s policies, but have offered little in the way of specifics.
Democrats didn’t so much defend the president as insist they were independent of him.
