64% of Arkansans Disapprove of Votes by Blanche Lincoln

Excerpts of John Lyon, Arkansas News Bureau, reporting on a recent poll: Arkansans oppose the overhaul of the nation’s health care system in slightly larger numbers than they did before it became law . . .

The poll, commissioned by the Arkansas News Bureau/Stephens Media, found 64% oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
[Previously] on March 23, 58% opposed . . .

In the latest poll, the question “Do you support or oppose the health care reform bill approved by Congress and signed into law by President Obama?”
- 64% oppose, 27% support, 9% undecided.
In the January poll: 58% oppose, 26% support, 16% undecided.

Respondents also were asked in both polls if they approved or disapproved of the votes of Arkansas’ senators, Democrats Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor, in support of the measure.

Lincoln’s vote, 64% disapproved, 28% approved, 8% not sure.
In Jan., 59% disapproved, 28% approved, 13% not sure.

Pryor’s vote, 62% disapproved, 28% approved, 10% not sure.
In Jan., 55% disapproved, 27% approved, 18% not sure.

Lincoln and Pryor have predicted that Arkansans will warm to the law when they see the beneficial effects of provisions . . . But the law has spurred controversy, particularly with a requirement that nearly every American buy health insurance. . . . in the immediate future Lincoln has more cause to be concerned than Pryor, who will not be up for re-election until 2012, but Pryor’s health care vote could become an issue if the law remains unpopular. “The real test will come first in November,” . . . “Then in a couple of years, if they (Arkansans) don’t see any improvement . . . to the health care system, then I think you’re really going to see the backlash kick in.”

Bye bye Blanche. Don't let the kick in the arse your going to get on election day hit you to hard!

Anonymous Donna Flowers Hester said...

I second that, Barry. Check out Jim Holt - he voted against pay raises for himself, against state takeover of schools, for gun rights, has a military background . . . Can check out his voting record compared to others @

Bye, Bye, Blanche!

We're voting for Jim Holt to take Lincoln's place - he should have been there last time! If Arkansans had voted him in six years ago, HE would have been the 60th vote instead of Lincoln and we wouldn't have the health care bill now! His voting record speaks for him loud and clear!
