Oh, Arkansas Pt. II

Posted By on Tue, Aug 25, 2009 at 11:07 AM

Here's that promised poll on Arkansas political outlooks. Ugh

Birthers rule.

Obama disapproval is high. A majority of people think better of Rush Limbaugh's ideas.

The good news is that base instincts frequently don't prevail at election time here, when the choices are live politicians, not abstract constructs or fake issues produced by scurrilous special interest disinformation campaigns. McMath, Bumpers, Pryor, Clinton, Beebe, etc. These are not Dittoheads.

Here's the whole shebang, with breakdowns on individual questions.

Installment tomorrow will focus on U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Zip name recognition for all the Repubs so far, but they still poll within margin of error in matchups with Lincoln.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
