Embattled Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln has a 12 point lead over her opponent for the Democratic nomination, Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, but Halter fares slightly better than Lincoln in general election match-ups against most of the five Republican hopefuls, according to a Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll conducted April 12-14.
Lincoln's support in all the match-ups with GOP hopefuls tops out at 43 percent, and her numbers in this poll haven't moved much since last month including in her contest with Halter.

Rep. John Boozman leads Lincoln 50 percent to 43 percent with 7 percent undecided. He leads Halter 48 percent to 41 percent with 11 percent undecided. Get the new PD toolbar!
