Halloween comes early for Blanche Lincoln

Arkansas Senator out of step with wishes of state's citizens

Arkansas voters to Sen. Blanche Lincoln: “BOO!”

It’s a day before Halloween, but a new poll back home should already be running a chill down Lincoln’s spine.

As a so-called centrist Democrat she opposes a public option, but that puts her out of step with the 56 percent of Arkansans which support it. That number climbs to 83 percent support among members of her own party. And perhaps the scariest thing of all in the poll, 57 percent of her fellow Democrats would consider dumping her for a new candidate in next year’s primary.

More results, and what numbers are haunting her fellow conservative Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) at the Huffington Post.
