Poll: Better numbers for Senate Democrats

Posted By on Mon, Aug 2, 2010 at 1:18 PM

New polling shows improved numbers for Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate in eight states. (Dems still trailed in several, however.)

No, Arkansas wasn't among those tested.

Analysis:

The national picture does matter and there's a real possibility the GOP will end up winning every close race. But the improvement Democrats are seeing is a reminder that candidates matter too and that the party may be able to buck the overall trends in the places where it proves to have a superior candidate.

Yes, you want to believe that elections are about more than dislike of the person in the White House.

    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.
