Poll: GOP’s Cotton Extends Lead Over Pryor In Arkansas

October 9, 2014 10:58 am

A new poll finds that Republican Tom Cotton has extended his lead over Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in the closely-watched Arkansas Senate race.

Cotton leads by 7 points among likely voters — 46 percent to Pryor’s 39 percent — according to a Fox News poll conducted Oct. 4-7 by the Democratic firm Anderson Robbins Research and the Republican firm Shaw & Company Research. (Ten percent said they didn’t know.)

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Previous surveys showed Cotton, a freshman congressman, with a narrow lead over Pryor, but the latest Fox poll may be an indication that the Democrat has a steeper hill to climb in order to hold his seat on Nov. 4.

The Fox poll was part of a series of surveys in Senate races, all of which showed good news for Republican candidates. It puts Cotton up by 5.7 percentage points in the TPM PollTracker Average.
