How come the MSM is not calling incumbent Democrat US Senator Blanche Lincoln unelectable in Arkansas?
In the poll, commissioned by the Arkansas News Bureau/Stephens Media by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey, Republican challenger John Boozman has a 17 point lead over incumbent Democrat Blanche Lincoln for the US Senate seat in Arkansas. Boozman leads 51% to 34% over Lincoln. 34%!!!
In the poll, commissioned by the Arkansas News Bureau/Stephens Media and conducted Sunday through Tuesday, 51 percent of respondents said they would vote for Boozman if the election were held today, while 34 percent said they would vote for Lincoln.
The margin between Boozman and Lincoln was unchanged from a similar poll conducted in early May, when 52 percent favored Boozman and 35 percent said they would vote for Lincoln. That match-up was hypothetical at the time because Boozman and Lincoln had not yet won their parties’ nominations.
As bad as this poll is, it is not even close to the reality of how badly that Democrats and Blance Lincolm will lose in the 2010 midterm elections. Rasmussenhas the race Boozman 65%, Lincoln 27%. That is correct, a 38% advantage for the Republican Senate challenger.
Hotline on call states, there is still more than a month to go, but at this point these numbers suggest Arkansas will be a near-certain pickup for the GOP. No, this one is over, stick a fork in it.
