Mason-Dixon is out with the first mainstream Arkansas Senate poll in several weeks, and things are still looking bad for Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Republican nominee John Boozman finds himself way out in front, topping Lincoln 51%-34%, with independent Trevor Drown taking in 3% and Green Party candidate John Gray pulling in 1%.
This poll, commissioned by the Arkansas News Bureau/Stephen Media, is the first Mason-Dixon poll conducted since June, when the hypothetical Boozman-Lincoln matchup yielded a 52%-35% lead for the Republican. The lone August survey on the race was a Rasmussen poll that favored Boozman by a dominant 65%-27% margin. Boozman’s commanding lead in the polls has not wavered in recent months.
The margin of error for the latest poll is Â±4.0 percentage points. The TPM Poll Average finds Boozman crusing in the contest, up 60.3%-31.2%.
