Congressman Tom Cotton holds a five-point lead over incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the 2014 U.S. Senate race in Arkansas.

A new statewide survey of Likely Arkansas Voters finds Cotton with 45% support to Pryor’s 40%. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate in the race, and 10% are undecided.

When someone who has held statewide office for 24 years and has around 90% name I.D. is polling only 40% of the vote, it’s a sign that he’s in big trouble politically. Pryor is already running attack ads and the election is 10 months away, so this is not a bogus poll.

This Pryor has not held state wide office for 24 years more like 12. You may be confusing the fact this idiot’s Father, David, was also a U.S. Senator.

It goes without saying that this race is a must-win.

He’s down between 5 and 7 %. The guy will lose by an eve wider margin.

Yes, Jr. Pryor has only held statewide office since 1999 (1 term as state AG before being elected to the Senate). 15 years this January.

Landrieu in Louisiana and Pryor in Arkansas are both in trouble, electorally.

However, the GOP still has time to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory.

I fear all this lauding about the GOP taking the Senate may be the same kind of prelude as 2012, when the GOP was destined to take the Senate — but failed to do so, and even lost a couple of seats.

Mark Pryor at the annual Raccoon Supper, Jan. 12, 2014.
Making the rounds and eating the coon.

Extremely different circumstances.

Neither has 50 percent so it could go either way. I just hope voters get to the poll. We have seen this time and time again. No time to be complacent.

Are we talking about the US Senate or Arkansas Senate? Pretty confusing title.

Funny (and true) story: when Pryor first ran for U.S. Senate, his opponent (whose name eludes me) said, “If it weren’t for his daddy, he’d be working at Taco Bell”!

So, when referring to Pryor, I always add this: Mark Pryor (D-Taco Bell).

Also, his daddy David was as smarmy a POS as ever lived. He made a career scaring the crap out of old people over their Social Security and Medicare.

Can anybody tell me how Mr. Cotton replied when his supporters asked him (ahem) if he would respect Congress’s constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers if elected?

You know I had actually forgotten he was AG, he was just so memorable in that post.

10% are undecided.

Then add 8% more to Cotton’s totals. 80% of Undecideds go for the Challenger. That would then be: Cotton 53% / Pryor 42%. We’re talking a blow-out here.

If I hear that cliche’ one more time, I think I’ll vomit. We lost the Senate in 2012 because we had some idiots running (Todd Aikin comes to mind.) Hopefully, we’ve learned from our mistakes and our candidates have learned to NOT answer “gotcha” questions.

Go either way? Not really. 10% are undecided. Undecideds always break for the Challenger.

It was just a stepping stone for the little *itch. Clinton also used the office as a stepping stone.

Hopefully Republicans will finally win the post this November.

You’re in trouble if the title makes sense to you...

Is Cotton trailing in his own historically Democrat 4th District? It’s also the traditional Pryor district.

Anybody who is on this website or politically astute know that Pryor is a U.S. Senator from Arkansas and most people on here know that Cotton is his challenger.
