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.

    Silence so far from Republican politicians such as Leslie Rutledge on achievement of their long-stated dream, death to the Affordable Care Act. Could that be because most people now understand what a good thing President Obama did with its passage? Update: Rutledge applauds and offers empty promise of coverage.
