New poll gives Tom Cotton 8.5-point lead over Mark Pryor in race for U.S. Senate

Posted By on Mon, Oct 20, 2014 at 6:06 PM

A new Talk Business/Hendrix College poll shows Republican Tom Cotton with a 49-40.5 lead over Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor.

I find it hard to credit that wide a lead. But if it's true, cue up "Oklahoma." It will be my theme song for Arkansas on Nov. 5.

The poll of 2,075 likely voters had 6 percent undecided and 4.5 percent split between Libertarian and Green candidates.

Here's the full report.
