Blanche Lincoln Getting Trounced By Guy Not Even Running Yet

Sphere: Related Content

The Democrats have used every non-sequitur, throwaway line and mumbled reason for Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts. They claim it means nothing, nothing at all, move along, nothing to see here.

They've been in overdrive claiming it's not really about health care, it's about the economy and people are upset. It's not their lame policies you see, they just don't know enough about it. Vote for socialized medicine and you'll see it's a really good thing. Hell, the Canadian system is awesome, just ask their elected leaders.

There are quite a few incumbents who supported Obama and voted for Obamacare who may want to call their offices, starting with Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR):

John Boozman will enter the Arkansas Senate race this weekend as the frontrunner. He leads incumbent Blanche Lincoln by an amazing 56-33 margin in our first poll of the race.

Lincoln's approval rating has sunk to just 27%, with 62% of voters in the state disapproving of her. She's at a middling 51% even within her own party and just 17% of independents and 9% of Republicans are happy with how she's doing.

A look inside the health care issue gives a good indication of how Lincoln has managed now to get it from all sides. 61% of voters in the state oppose the President's plan, and among those folks Lincoln's approval rating is just 8% with 79%of them expressing the belief that she's too liberal.
Note that most people don't even know who Boozman is and still he's winning. Essentially, some dude name Not Blanche Lincoln could run as long as he's a Republican and win by 20%.

Expect Sen. Lincoln to be coerced by a Ambassador posting in some exotic locale to get out of the race. Either that or have Obama campaign for her, he's been so successful in winning over Olympic voters, climate change zealots, Virginia voters, Massachusetts voters...
