Republican candidate, John Boozman, leads his Democrat opponent, Blanche Lincoln, by a 2 to 1 margin. This has been so for a while in the head to head match ups. The reason why, as noted by Rasmussen, is Obamacare.
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 last year following her procedural vote that kept the national health care bill alive in the Senate.
Voters in Arkansas have consistently opposed the health care bill more strongly than voters in much of the rest of the country. Sixty-five percent (65%) of voters in the state now favor repeal of the health care bill, while 30% oppose repeal. This includes 57% who Strongly Favor repeal and 20% who are Strongly Opposed.
Hey, there's that same 2 to 1 margin again, interesting.
And no, not even the first Black President can save her.
As for the second first Black President, let me put it this way ... Who has he campaigned for who won? Futher more, I doubt that the 65% for the repeal of Obamacare will be swayed by The Won. At least not while they still remember this...
Thanks for the advice Barry ... I think we will 'Go for it'.
