Rep. Tom Cotton (R) has a worse unfavorable to favorable rating compared to Sen. Mark Pryor (D), who Cotton is challenging in the Arkansas Senate race, according to a new poll from Republican pollster Harper Polling on behalf of the conservative American Crossroads group.
Thirty-nine percent of those surveyed have an unfavorable view of Cotton while 31 percent have a favorable view, the poll found. Thirty percent said they were unsure. By contrast, 42 percent of those surveyed said they have a favorable view of Pryor while 37 percent said they have an unfavorable view. Twenty-one percent said they were not sure.
The poll also found a tight race between Cotton and Pryor which may be good news for Pryor, who is considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country. The poll found Cotton and Pryor tied with 39 percent each. Twenty-two percent said they weren't sure.
It's the latest bit of good news for Pryor. A string of recent polls -- many of them commissioned by Democratic groups -- have found Pryor actually leading Cotton in the Arkansas Senate race.
The poll was conducted from April 9 to April 10. Harper polling surveyed 522 likely voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.29 percentage points.
