Poll: GOPer Boozman Leads Blanche Lincoln By 25 Points

Views

Yet another poll has bad news for Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), with the incumbent seriously trailing her Republican opponent Rep. John Boozman.

The new poll, commissioned by Arkansas-based Talk Business and conducted by Zata 3, gives Boozman 57% to Lincoln’s 32%, followed by independent Trevor Drown at 3% and the Green Party’s John Gray at 2%. The survey of likely voters has a ±3.7% margin of error. The TPM Poll Average gives Boozman a lead of 50.3%-35.1% in a two-way matchup.

From the pollster’s analysis: “First, Boozman has a strong lead in this race if for no other reason but for the anti-incumbent, anti-Lincoln sentiment that exists in the state’s current political landscape…Lincoln’s fundraising advantage – $1.9 million to Boozman’s $484,000 – is a good step for her to make this race more competitive, but she will also have to find ways to define Boozman negatively, something we’ve seen signs of in recent weeks.”
