Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that President Barack Obama would have had more support in the Senate if he just governed more towards the middle. “As I’ve said all year, if he wants to meet us in the middle of the political spectrum we’ll be there to help,” McConnell told NBC’s David Gregory Sunday.

For McConnell, the president’s whole problem is that he isn’t moderate enough. “The president decided to go hard left,” he said. “That’s why he doesn’t have many of my members. If he chooses to govern in the middle he will have broader support,” said McConnell.
