While some Democrats in tight races around the country are distancing themselves from President Obama, you have to know your audience. Take Rhode Island (please! Just kidding). With President Obama staying conspicuously neutral in the governor's race presumably because he's pals with Independent candidate Lincoln Chafee Democratic nominee Frank Caprio told the president that he "can take his endorsement and really shove it." Not a good call. A new poll shows that Caprio has plummeted twelve points since the same poll showed him leading the race on October 12. Thirty-six percent of respondents said Caprio's "shove it" remark made them less likely to vote for him, versus only 7 percent who said they're more likely to vote for him.
