Poll: Beebe 50-40

Posted By on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 at 8:46 AM

Rasmussen, which has a persistent Republican bias, shows Gov. Mike Beebe up 50-40 over Republican Jim Keet in its latest sample. Note this isn't statistically different from 53-38 it recorded in May.

If these results are reliable, they should give you pause. 75 percent think cutting taxes is a better way to create jobs. What's that old definition of insanity?

    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.
