The poll surely provides some small comfort for Landrieu, who has been the target of a fusillade of negative campaign ads, many of them bankrolled by the infamous Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity group, tethering her to Obamacare. But the devil is in the details: Landrieu's unfavorability rating among respondents remains above 50 percent.
