As a Massachusetts resident I don't have an issue with his performance since he was elected. He is in a tough spot as the Republicans, and especially Tea Party members, call him a RINO and what not. The rank and file Democrats detest him as they think he is ultra conservative. As a Republican from Massachusetts he has to be liberal on some issues and as a Republican Senator he needs to be conservative on other issues. He is in a no win situation. If the Dems don't put up a viable candidate I think he will win again in 2012. What are your thoughts on his chances in 2012?
