Ark. Gov: Beebe (D) 45%, Hutchinson (R) 41% (Rasmussen)
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 11:41 AM by skipos
August 21 , 2006

In a political season filled with bad news from the GOP, our latest Arkansas poll shows a trend moving in the other direction. State Attorney General Mike Beebes (D) lead continues to evaporate in his gubernatorial contest with former Congressman Asa Hutchinson (R). Beebe now leads Hutchinson 45% to 41% (see crosstabs). For most of the year, the Democrat enjoyed a double digit lead. Then, Julys survey showed Beebe on top 47% to 40%.

1. The polls will come "closer and closer" as the election nears.
The GOP will try to steal this one too.

3. Rasmussen has Webb pulling closer to Allen in VA
He also has Strickland destroying Blackwell in the OH polls. I am not sure how that fits into the the GOP/Rasmussen conspiracy theory you are proposing.

He IS a Republican and anyone can feel free to criticize his polling methods, though.

2. There hasn't been much news about the governor's race
I haven't heard of any rallies, have only seen two Asa bumperstickers-and I work in a very red town. I have no idea why the polls are shifting. But I am worried because suddenly we have electronic voting machines. I'm hoping to find some off the wall candidate to vote for in a local race to check and see if my vote actually counted.

4. Rasmussen polls have shown tighter margins in almost every race
Regardless of which side is ahead. I'm in Nevada and he has polled the gov race and senate race tighter than any other firm. And that's with the Democrats faring much better than in non-Rasmussen polls.

I have a guess he's onto something. We have the natural advantages this cycle but it's more of a vote-against atmosphere than our party favorability being high, so that should lead to a ton of close races.
