    On election day, former West Point cadet and Bronze Star recipient Joe Miller defeated Republican Party Hack Lisa Murkowski by around a three-to-one margin among Alaskan registered voters at the Elmendorf Air Force base, Fort Richardson, and Fort Wainwright. The good news for Miller is that he can expect voters from these three areas to be disproportionately represented among the absentee ballots. How so? Only 2.55%, 4.97%, and 3.55% of the voters at Fort Wainwright, Elmendorf Air Force base, and Fort Richardson, voted on election day. The percentage of the electorate that turned out on election day was 28.36%. What...

    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.

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.

    The gubernatorial race in Arkansas is a little closer this month, but Democratic incumbent Mike Beebe still leads his Republican challenger by 10 points. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Beebe picking up 50% support, while Republican Jim Keet earns 40% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer a different candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. The latest numbers mark Beebe's lowest level of support in three Rasmussen Reports surveys conducted this year. Last month, he held a 57% to 33% lead over Keet. In mid-May, Beebe led 53% to 38%.

    Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, who narrowly survived a tight Democratic primary fight, may be up against an even tougher battle in the general election, according to a new poll released Tuesday. The Ipsos survey found the incumbent Lincoln trailing Republican Rep. John Boozman by 19 points -- 54 percent to 35 percent. "There's a general incumbent backlash and she hasn't been able to stave it off," Ipsos pollster Cliff Young told Reuters, which commissioned the survey. It is still early, he said, "but in a relative sense she's not in a good position." The poll indicates Arkansas voters give...

    Our latest Talk Business Poll is likely to get the water cooler talk started about this fall's general election match-ups for U.S. Senate and Arkansas Governor. In a poll conducted on Saturday, July 17 among 793 likely Arkansas voters, our polling firm, Washington, D.C.-based Zata 3, found the following results: U.S. SENATE John Boozman (R) 57% Blanche Lincoln (D) 32% Trevor Drown (I) 3% John Gray (G) 2% Undecided 6% Analysis: This race won't finish where it stands today as I've said in previous discussions of this match-up; however, several observations stand out. First, Boozman has a strong lead in...

    Republican John Boozman now holds a near two-to-one lead over Democratic incumbent Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas’ U.S. Senate race, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state. Boozman earns 61% of the vote, while Lincoln, coming off her Democratic Primary runoff win last week, picks up 32% support. Four percent (4%) favor some other candidate in the race, while just three percent (3%) remain undecided. Lincoln, who is seeking a third term in the Senate, was reelected in 2004 with 56% of the vote. But she has been struggling politically at home since late...

    A Research 2000 poll in Arkansas shows Bill Halter (D) edging Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) in their Democratic primary runoff, 48% to 46%. DailyKos: "The poll's methodology may be overstating Halter's support by a couple of points -- the horserace question is asked after some leading issue questions. We'll be polling this race much cleaner next week (horserace question first). It'll be curious to see if the results deviate much."

But I don't see anything out there for the Arkansas, Kentucky and Oregon folks so we are going to post our normal live thread focusing on the Key House Races. In this weeks Primary Elections we see 2 competitive House Races in AR and 9 in PA. Plus there is the Special Election in PA-12 that we have been following. There is nothing looking very competitive to us in OR or KY. So if you are just interested in how things are going across the board...

    EAST CAMDEN, Ark. – Days before Arkansas voters deliver a verdict on her political career, Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln spent Saturday telling them that she's built up the clout in Washington to best represent the state's interests. Talking up her credentials in Washington flies in the face of the anti-incumbent and anti-Washington sentiment that Lincoln faces. Halter, backed by labor unions that have soured on Lincoln, is portraying himself as an agent of change and Lincoln as the status quo. Lincoln is considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in Washington this year. She angered conservatives by supporting the Democratic-led...

    Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln has fallen to her lowest levels of support yet in her bid for reelection, while her five top Republican challengers now pull over 50% support from Likely Voters in the state. Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter, who is challenging Lincoln in the Democratic Primary, runs only slightly stronger than she does. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arkansas shows Lincoln receiving between 29% and 32% support in the five potential match-ups. All five Republicans have either tied or surpassed their highest levels of support so far this year. Forty-eight percent (48%) of...

    Sen. Blanche Lincoln, under fire for keeping a $4,500 contribution from Goldman Sachs’s political action committee, has canceled a fundraising lunch with Goldman executives that was scheduled for Monday and would have netted many times that amount for the Arkansas Senator’s reelection campaign. The cancelled fundraiser, which was to have been held at Goldman’s Lower Manhattan headquarters, is emblematic of the investment bank’s swift fall from well-connected fundraising powerhouse to political pariah – a fate sealed Friday when the Securities and Exchange Commission charged the firm with defrauding investors

    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. The survey has Lincoln leading Halter 45 percent to 33 percent with 16 percent undecided. The primary is May...
