  • BETTER NUMBERS: In new poll for Sen. Mark Pryor.
Politico has published a round of polling in key U.S. Senate races, including Republican extremist Tom Cotton's challenge of incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor.

Polling was done by Harper Polling for the Republican super PAC, American Crossroads. It's better for Pryor than the recent Talk Business-Hendrix College poll that showed Pryor ahead 42-41, but with a 34-48 approve/disapprove rating.

The Republican poll shows Pryor leading 45-42, with 13 percent undecided.

It is sharply better in the approval rating category.

On general feelings, the respondents rated Pryor 46-37-13 (favorable/unfavorable/unsure). Cotton polled at 37-26-37.

Job performance:

Pryor finished 45-40-15 (approve/disapprove/unsure).

The sample disagreed, 47-45, with the notion that things were so bad in Washington everyone should be thrown out.

The polls also showed Democratic incumbents leading narrowly in Alaska and Louisiana, but a Republican leading for an open West Virginia seat now held by a Democrat.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
