    According to the new Arkansas Poll, voters will choose Republican John Boozman over Democrat Blanche Lincoln. But the report also sheds some light on the issues Arkansans will consider as they cast their ballots. The poll showed that one of the main issues in this election is health care, and it revealed a big shift in how people felt about it 6 years ago, and they feel about it today. In 2004 the Arkansas Poll asked voters how they felt about a plan to provide health insurance for those who didn't have it, these were the results. “80% of our...

    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...

According to a new poll, US Representative John Boozman (R-Arkansas) has a 25 point lead over incumbent Senator Blanch Lincoln (D-Arkansas).

    WASHINGTON, DC— U.S. Rep. John Boozman (R-AR), a member of the Veterans Affairs Health Subcommittee, issued the following statement regarding John Kerry’s visit to Arkansas: "Arkansans should judge John Kerry on his health care record, not his rhetoric. The reality is that Kerry tried to block the President's legislation that is guaranteeing affordable prescription drugs for all 453,000 Medicare beneficiaries in Arkansas. Kerry has also opposed the President's actions to limit the frivolous lawsuits driving up health care costs.
