AR Senate: Lincoln trails by 25 points to Republican challenger
The latest survey from Rasmussen shows two-term incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) trailing by 25 points to her Republican challenger, Rep. John Boozman.
General Election: Blanche Lincoln v. John Boozman
- Boozeman: 60%
- Lincoln: 35%
- Other: 2%
- Not sure: 3%
There is almost nope hope that Lincoln can over come the margin, as voters have mostly already made their minds up on whether she deserves re-election. According to the survey, only 14% hold a “very favorable” view of the senator, while 37% have a “very unfavorable” view.
Lincoln’s downfall has been her vote support of President Barack Obama’s agenda, voting for the stimulus, ObamaCare and financial “reform.”
Based on current projections, Rasmussen ranks seven seats at toss-ups (Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, Washington and Wisconsin). If Republicans win them all, including seats they are already projected to win, they would gain control of the Senate.
