Top Democratic pollster Mark Mellman told the Wall Street Journal that running on the Democratic record will be tough for Democrats in the 2014 Election.

“If it’s a referendum on whether you like the way Democrats have governed…that’s a harder election for us to win,” Mellman said.

Instead, Mellman said Democrats should try to “frame the election as a choice between governing philosophies.”

Mellman’s clients include Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., N.V.) as well as a number of other Democratic senators and governors.
