Skip to comments.At this rate, it will be an epic loss. Arkansas Senate: Boozman (R) 65%, Lincoln (D) 27% Rasmussen

Support for incumbent Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln has now fallen to its lowest level yet as Republican John Boozman remains on track to shift Arkansas Senate seat to the GOP column.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arkansas shows Boozman capturing 65% of the vote, while Lincoln earns 27% support. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are not sure.
Wow. Thats huge
Ho-lee cow! That is a heckuva margin!
Might it be an understatement to say the race is tilting a bit toward the GOP? ;-)
Just two days ago, I saw a cable channel wrap up about the fall national elections that put this race in a toss up or “leaning” category. The reporter evidently was drunk and whistling past the graveyard.
No chance the Arkansas Dems would pull a late-breaking “Torricelli” move, is there?
Is Bubba Clinton a big Lincoln fan? I can’t remember. If so, he isn’t having much pull in his home state.
Blanche was here this week in Fort Smith trying to buy votes by promising money for a drainage project in our city.
She’s barking up the wrong tree in Fort Smith...it’s pretty red here.
Considering Boozman is the only Republican representative in Congress from Arkansas, I’d say Blanche’s days are numbered :)
he’s gone from a 25% lead to a 38% lead within a month.
I mean has she just gone under a rock and not bothered to even campaign.
Make sure you thank Obama for forcing you to support his ubra liberal left wing agenda when you really didn’t want to. This is a result of the Republicans keeping Snowe and Collins in line. Guaranteed if one or both of those defected Blanche would have voted against the health care bill and not be in trouble right now. That’s why the Dumbocrats were so mad at the pubbies earlier this year. They couldn’t peel even one of them off and the Dems “moderate” members had to take the hit.
Nah... he said she blows...
And yesterday Charlie Cook made AK just a Tossup!
He did some radio ads for her during the primaries when she was up against the Lt. Gov., Bill Halter.
Blanche Lincoln blanched herself by voting for 0bummer’s nut case left-wing programs which have made the economy worse and which have mortgaged our children’s, our grandchildren’s, and our great-grandchildren’s futures.
She is not part of the solution—which requires reversing course. She is part of the problem—and the voters in Missouri seem to understand that fact.
Bold Prediction: This Fall, Clinton (bilbo) takes Blanche’s place on the ballot. Seriously.
Oh happy day.
I believe cook and rothenberg can move this to lean republican from toss up.
Give that man a cigar!
hey Blanche hows that Hope and Change working out for you?
If the Republicans take the Senate seat in Conn. It will signal a total Democrat wipeout.
The voters in Arkansas, too ;)
This should effect the governors race. Or is their going to be alot of ticket splitting?
That woman is such an embarrassing clown I’m pretty sure that were he alive today, Abraham would change his name to something like....Garbanzobean....just so he wouldn’t accidentally be identified with her.
This should detroy the myth that voters are impressed by style over substance.
For a fleeting moment I worried that the name LINCOLN was superior to BOOZMAN. Glad to see my theory sucked;)
27%, thats less than half of what she won with in 2004.
I don’t trust it. There is a long time before November, and lost of underhanded things can happen between now and then.
Rasmussen must must be picking up virtually no support for her there at all, she’s declined and declined and declined since early 2010, i dont see how you can turn it round, once support for an incumbent drops like that, its hard to get back, it sort of solidifies the reason for someone new.
Arkansas has only one Senate seat? /s
I didn’t know that—I’ve only been here for 3 years. And if my husband’s job prospects hold up, we may not be here much longer ;) (Just talked to someone from the place in Ohio he interviewed with last month—I gave them his cell number!)
nope, there’s 2 theres the other Dem idiot Pryor.
send in the clowns
Remember back in the primaries when the Dems were so proud of themselves for positioning Lincoln as the “moderate” in relation to her left-wing nut opponent? Remember how the MSM brayed about how that was going to put Lincoln in a good position as the “moderate” in the general election? Somehow I don’t see it panning out the way they wanted it to.
If they did, it wouldn’t work. Who would they put up?
JournoList MSM Headline: Blanche Lincoln Surges in New Poll
Well done, both of you.
from what i see they can’t 4th August was last day for nomination and certification i think in Arkansas 90 days before the election. Only if she dies can they replace her now.
AK is Alaska. Are you sure he didn’t mean that?
Don’t worry, Gallup or Pew will come out with a poll tomorrow showing Lincoln with a 5% lead over Boozman, cause you know all those other polls are biased.</sarcasm>
well i think boozman will win by that margin but we need help in the 4th didtrict to get mike ross out and BETH ANN RANKIN voted in ROSS voted to keep the health bill going then voted against it but if not for him it would have never been voted on to pass
Old Teufel.....you got it! Right on the money.
For an incumbat to lose by these percentages without a scandal on their personal record is astronomically huge.................
This is looking like the Al Greene-Jim DeMint race, that would be fun for Lincoln to have to challenge Greene for worst loser.
A very nice poll result, but NEVER underestimate the spineless stupidity of republicans or the criminality of the left.
If this is anywhere near accurate, Lincoln will retire prior to the election rather than have those numbers in the history book.
Or be forced out by the DNC and someone else put on the ballot regardless of the law, like they did in NJ.
It is VERY rare for an incumbent to see the race “lean” this strongly against without a major scandal - Larry Craig could have done it in Idaho 2008, but chose to spend more time with his family (with total strangers?) instead of running for office. I hope Blanche has plenty to keep her busy in her new life, starting January 2011.
The more interesting point is that Blanche did nothing terribly wrong (other than being a Democrat) to get to this point, and that she’s relatively conservative as today’s Democrats go.
