And today's polls say

Posted By on Fri, Aug 25, 2006 at 5:50 AM

1) Bush has low approval rating in Arkansas -- 36 approval rating (like everywhere else but Utah).

2) Pryor and Lincoln ride high with voters.

3) And, today's talker, either Hillary or Wes Clark would beat Huckabee in Arkansas in a 2008 presidential race -- 51 to 36 or 37. Good response from The Huckster:

Considering the Arkansas News polls having every Republican candidate 20 to 30 points behind the Democrat despite every other poll taken saying the opposite, this would have to be seen as very positive," the governor said.

Speaking of which, The Huckster gets a mention, but only a brief one, in a NY Times roundup on the early campaign activities of 2008 candidates from both parties.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
