Two-term Sen. Blanche Lincoln, who has been a pivotal figure for the Democrats in mustering support for health care reform, finds herself in statistical dead-heats when matched against six potential Republican challengers for her seat, according to a Mason-Dixon poll conducted Jan. 18-20 for the Arkansas News Bureau/Stevens Media.

Lincoln has leads within the poll's 4 point margin of error against four of the Republicans and trails two. A seventh Republican, Rep. John Boozman, said this week he might also get into the race.

Lincoln leads businessman Curtis Coleman 40 percent to 39 percent with 21 percent undecided; former Army Col. Conrad Reynolds by 41 percent to 38 percent with 21 percent undecided; state Sen. Kim Hendren by 43 percent to 38 percent with 19 percent undecided; and, Tea Party activist Tom Cox by 41 percent to 38 percent with 21 percent undecided.

State Sen. Gilbert Baker leads Lincoln 43 percent to 39 percent with 18 percent undecided. Former state Sen. Jim Holt leads Lincoln 43 percent to 37 percent with 20 percent undecided.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
