Posted on 08/20/2010 10:18:30 AM PDT by Justaham
Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) is trailing her Republican opponent John Boozman in Arkansas by 38 points.
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.
Boozman has been ahead in this race for months. In July, he posted a 60% to 35% lead. In surveys since he won the Republican Primary in May, Boozman has earned 60% to 66% of the vote in matchups with Lincoln, who in turn has picked up 28% to 35% support.
Lets hope that Obamacare vote was worth it. It would be interesting to discover what goodies were promised this democrat for her vote to nationalize health care. Good-bye, Blanche.

Say goodnight Blanche. Don’t let the door hit you in the arse on the way out.
Thank you Lord! Help us cleanse the sewer that is this Congress composed of anti-American Elitists who pray to the their God of power.
These people should be banned from any government-related job for life.
” That margin is hugh and series.”
Taht may be rite, but its a mute point, and irrevalunt!
Wow! Just wow! For an incumbent to be down that much! Oh wow! Maybe Obambi is getting something accomplished after all...some House and Senate cleaning.
“If the Republicans take control of Congress, they should do everything in their power to see that those Democrats that were voted out of office will never hold a job in Washington.”
What they should do is bring every chairperson of every committee up on Ethics charges. And not let up.
No, she need to keep spending democrat election funds right up to the election. Wouldn't want that money to go to a more competitive race.
ha - serves her right. The Clinton’s home State of old... LMFAO
I’m not sure about that. At least Alvin is entertaining!
You are right! Maybe the union bosses will pour a few more millions into her campaign - would serve the union members right!
“This girl here. She’s TOAST next election.”
A rout of routs awaits the tyrants.
Getting exactly what she deserves!
Disturbing. Where’s his other hand?
Let continued to defeat all those who vote for Obama death care.
Don't give them any freakin' ideas, people!! In 2008, when sitting Sen Toricelli was polling behind the Republican challenger in NJ (due to a - get this- "ethics controversy"), he dropped out. Unfortunately for the Dems, it was after the explicit deadline for another candidate to be added to the ballot. The Dems aded Frank Lautenberg anyway. Unfortunately for the Rule of Law, the NJ Supreme Court went along with it. Lautenberg won.
Same thing happened in 2000 in Missouri, when sitting Gov Carnahan died (plane crash) just before the election. His wife was allowed to take his place, despite election law. She won.
There is no shortage of recent election recounts where the recounts did not finish until the Dem was ahead, and then the counts stopped immediately. Washington, Ohio, Florida, Minnesota, etc.
Never, NEVER forget that they do not have to follow the Rules!! The power-hungry do NOT give up power willingly... and the Hard Left is in charge, and hungrier than anyone we've ever seen in this country.

Welcome to my Health Care Resources web page. I hope you will find this information useful.
I believe one of the most important things we can do to help rebuild our economy and right our long-term fiscal imbalance is to fix our broken health care system.
Yes, what you said. Exactly!
SPRINGDALE, AR Republican US Senate Candidate Jim Holt called Senator Blanche Lincolns announcement today that she would be voting against the Healthcare Reconciliation Bill a “fraud” and a “Fig Leaf” to cover up her crucial 60th vote to proceed with Obama Care. Holt said:
“With a single vote she has divided our Nation right down the middle and we are poised below an avalanche that can only be stopped if we act now. Lincoln’s comment that the House Package ‘includes matter unrelated to health care’ is imbecilic. The package that the Senate originally sent back to the house was full of this ‘unrelated matter.’ The Federal Government is bound by article one section nine of the Constitution to not favor one state above another.
Blanche Lincoln lit the match that burned the Constitution. Her crucial 60th vote for cloture last December sent a clear and undeniable message to the American people that she will continue to adhere to Washington’s liberal agenda despite what the voters in Arkansas want, or what the supreme law of the land says.
Blanche is cooked.
Actually, Mel Carnahan remained on the ballot. Shortly after the plane crash, new Gov. Roger Wilson announced that if Carnahan was elected, he would name his widow as Senator.
In the two weeks following Carnahans death, there was really no campaigning. But there was a lot of sympathy and a highly publicized funeral, of course. Ashcroft lost by about 2%, or 50,000 votes. It was all done legally, but the sympathy factor had a whole lot to do with it.
Two years later, after we had discovered that Jean Carnahan was slightly dumber than a box of rocks, she was defeated by Jim Talent in the special election.
Was it worth it Blanche? You can join the rest under the bus.
and of course the legacy continues with more little Carnahans looking to feed at the public trough. It is amazing how many little leftists one family of school teachers can begat.
A waste of money either way though.
Right you are! I remember that awful U.S. Senate election in Missouri in 2000. They were interviewing one dingbat (whose gender I will refuse to identify) who said its vote was to show one coworker who told it that being a U.S. Senator could be a difficult job and just because someone was married to someone who was qualified didn't make them qualified. It took said remark as a sexist put-down of women and voted for the box of rocks just to show him.
She should call “Dandy Dale” Bumpers out of retirement to save her seat. People in AR have never repudiated Bumpers though they did Clinton twice.
It does make me wonder what the people of AR are thinking. In the past, they have shown little interest in the U.S. Constitution.
Oh well. Ignore the “people” and they will ignore you! Bah Bye!!
Tar and feather her sorry ass on her way out of town./
Goodbye Blanche! No way she can recover.
Even low level members ruling class gets very upset when their elected puppets refuse to reach into the taxpayer’s pockets deeply enough to suit them.
Self-ping, thanks Justaham.
John Boozman is getting my money for damn sure!
She having an orgasm?
Isn’t that alvin greene?
It’s not John Boozman
