NBC poll puts Cotton up 45-40 over Pryor; Hutchinson up 48-39 over Ross

Posted By on Sun, Sep 7, 2014 at 7:55 AM

Chuck Todd begins his stint as host of NBC's Meet the Press today and Channel 4 notes that the program, in addition to an interview with President Obama, will include results from yet another survey in the race for U.S. Senate between incumbent Democratic Mark Pryor and Republican Tom Cotton (and a couple of third party contenders.)

Trend says it will be close, a statistical dead heat.

Show airs at 9 a.m. our time on KARK, after Capitol View

UPDATE: Strike that trend.

NBC poll has Cotton up 45-40, with 5 points to third-party candidates and 10 points undecided.

Their poll also shows a broaded lead in Kentucky for Mitch McConnel over some early reports on his are with Allison Grimes.

The Arkansas poll of more than 1,000 likely voters by Marist has a 3 point margin of error.

Noted: Huge disapproval rate for Republicans in Congress. Also Democrats, though slightly higher for GOP,

The poll is dead even, 41-41, among registered voters as opposed to likely voters. Thus, the importance of an unusual turnout.

GOVERNOR'S RACE: The poll also sampled the race for governor. Results again favored the Republican:

Asa Hutchinson 48
Mike Ross 39
Frank Gilbert 3
Josh Drake 3
Undecided 7

The respondents tended to favor a Republican majority in Congress as a "check" on President Obama, whose disapproval rate remains huge — only about 30 percent approve. Bill Clinton has a high approval rate; Mike Beebe even higher, at 76 percent. The president's health care legislation continues to suffer from majority disapproval.

49 percent of the voters in this poll considered themselves evangelical Christians.

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.
