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

Posted on 08/20/2010 6:42:16 AM PDT by sunmars

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.

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.

Blanche sweetie,

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.

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.

For Bubba, I would think that would mean he's making a lot of campaign appearances with her. However, she doesn't have that white trailor park trash look so she might not be his type...

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;)

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.

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.

This is looking like the Al Greene-Jim DeMint race, that would be fun for Lincoln to have to challenge Greene for worst loser.

Considering Boozman is the only Republican representative in Congress from Arkansas

He may be joined by 3 R representatives next year. Three of the 4 House seats are leaning Republican. That would be a MASSIVE political shift for Arkansas.

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.
