Stick a fork in Blanche Lincoln, she is done … When the polls close in Arkansas this coming November, one minute later the news services will be calling the US Senate race for the Republicans.
According to the most recent Rasmussen poll for the Arkansas US Senate seat, Republican challenger John Boozman has a 25% point lead over incumbent Democrat Blanche Lincoln. Boozman leads Lincoln 60% to 35%. We are going to go out on a limb and call this one for the GOP and a US Senate pick up in 2010.
Republican John Boozman holds a 25-point lead over Democratic incumbent Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas’ U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely voters shows Boozman picking up 60% support, while Lincoln picks up 35% support. Just two percent (2%) would prefer another candidate, while three percent (3%) are undecided. These figures are little changed from a month ago.
With such a bad beat down in a state that was going to elect a Republican Senator, it really makes you wonder why the unions wasted so much money supporting the failed candidacy of Halter during the Democrat primary.
End result … a pick up for the GOP.
