Grim Poll Numbers Continue for Lincoln

In what has become a familiar refrain, the latest numbers on the 2010 U.S. Senate race in Arkansas continue to show Sen. Blanche Lincoln faring poorly. Survey results released today by Rasmussen show Lincoln trailing in head-to-head match-ups against Republicans Gilbert Baker, Curtis Coleman, Tom Cox and Kim Hendren.

Rasmussen also shows that Arkansas voters’ enthusiasm for the health care reform proposals coming out of Washington D.C. are tepid. Full report over here if you feel like going to pick over the whole thing in detail, or you can just be like me and look at the headline and move on, because there’s been entirely too many damn polls already and we’ve still got 11 months of this to go.

And it probably doesn’t help matters for Lincoln much when former Democratic presidential hopeful and national committee chair Howard Dean goes on MSNBC and talks up a potential primary challenge to the state’s senior senator. Et tu, Howard?:

Yeah, that probably doesn’t help much.

    Does it really make sense that AARP backs the health bill WITH its Medicare cuts? It only makes sense if you look at the fact that AARP operating funds are 60% royalties from insurance they sell AND if Medicare Advantage bites the dust, they will be only too happy to sell LOTS of Medigap policies. Wake up people. AARP is more interested in lining their own pockets than advocating for seniors. Criminal to do this on the backs of seniors!
    How can Blanche Lincoln and David Pryor BOTH vote to preserve the cuts in medicare today in good conscience?? What’s in it for them?

    Blanche Lincoln has swallowed the President’s promise that she would be re-elected if she voted for his Healthcare plan. Unfortunately the President has promised with a straight face and turned 180 degrees and broken those promises. For all the reasons that progressive, centrist, Olympia Snowe refused to vote for this plan, Blanche Lincoln should have also rejected it in spades. Her loyalty is not to us, but rather to Obama. Not to her constituents, but to her party. I am ashamed I voted for Lincoln and with every ounce of my life, I will spend my money and convince anyone who will listen that Lincoln is a traitor to our state. I will fight with all my might to get her out of office
