Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) in trouble

Well, for me, what has Blanche Lincoln stood for? Not much. And it shows in these polling numbers for her in Arkansas.

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Arkansas shows Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) tied with three potential challengers who have essentially non-existent name recognition.

Lincoln gets at 40% against all three of the Republicans. Gilbert Baker (R) and Curtis Coleman (R) lead her with 42% and 41% respectively, while Tom Cotton trails with 39%.

Analsyis: "The numbers of course are more a reflection on Lincoln's standing than that of the Republicans. Her approval rating is now 36%, with 44% of voters in the state disapproving of the job she's doing. That's a 13 point downward shift in her net approval rating, from 45/40 when we measured it in March. That largely tracks the 18 point decline in the President's popularity over that time."

Meaning, the Republicans will be GEARED up to battle her. I am sure she will get plenty of insurance lobbyist money, since she came out early against the public option, then was for it, now who knows?
