Conservative poll gives Tom Cotton edge on Mark Pryor

Posted By on Tue, Aug 6, 2013 at 10:16 AM

Another day, another poll, this one by a conservative source — the Conservative Intelligence Briefing — described as "your best source for insider news and information about Conservative Republican candidates and politics."

It claims a poll Aug. 4-5 of 587 likely voters finished this way:

Tom Cotton 43
Mark Pryor 41
Undecided 16

That's a statistical dead heat. The poll has a 4% margin of error.

Polling to date effectively puts the anybody-but-Pryor vote at 43 percent-plus. In fact, in this poll, 48 percent said they'd prefer another senator, but only 43 percent went for Cotton. I still believe driving negatives to fight for that 16 percent is going to make TV intolerable.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
