Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln, having survived a primary and a run-off, is not making any headway in her campaign for reflection in Arkansas with Republican Rep. John Boozman holding a 17 point lead, according to a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey conducted Sept. 12-14 for the Arkansas News Bureau.

Boozman leads Lincoln 51 percent to 34 percent with 4 percent preferring other candidates and 11 percent undecided, about the same margin he enjoyed in May before either he or Lincoln had nailed down their nominations. A Rasmussen Reports poll in mid-August had Boozman ahead by even a bigger margin.

Blanche Lincoln, John Boozman Lincoln is seen unfavorably by 47 percent and favorably by 30 percent, with 23 percent neutral. Forty-three percent see Boozman favorably, 22 percent regard him unfavorably and 27 percent were neutral, with another 8 percent not recognizing his name.

Hall Bass, a political science professor at Ouachita Baptist University, told the Arkansas News Bureau that "the assets (Lincoln) brings to the table, and they're considerable, just don't seem to have much resonance in this particular campaign environment."

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Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.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.
