Election 2010: Arkansas Senate -- Boozman (R) 61%, Lincoln (D) 32%

Unions and DC Democrats tried to knock off Blanche Lincoln in the Democrat primary, but were unsuccessful as she is the Democrat nominee. Unions spent millions and millions to defeat Lincoln to no avail. With these poll numbers, looks like Lincoln will be sent back to Arkansas after the November 2nd election. It is not like she didn't have warning from her constituents not to vote for the Obama agenda. She had plenty of warning but chose to ignore her constituents.

This Senate race looks like it is more than leaning Republican right now. With a lot of hard work and help from volunteers, Republican Boozman will be putting this Arkansas Democrat Senate seat in the Republican column come November.

Republican John Boozman now holds a near two-to-one lead over Democratic incumbent Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas’ U.S. Senate race, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state.

Boozman earns 61% of the vote, while Lincoln, coming off her Democratic Primary runoff win last week, picks up 32% support. Four percent (4%) favor some other candidate in the race, while just three percent (3%) remain undecided.

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.

Eighty-nine percent (89%) of the much-larger group that Strongly Favors repeal support Boozman, a U.S. congressman who, like all Republicans, voted against the health care bill. Sixty-two percent (62%) of those who Strongly Oppose repeal back Lincoln.
