What the hell has happened to Arkansas since Bill Clinton left? It is one of the poorest states with nearly 25 percent uninsured. I can't understand why people have been ultimately brainwashed by the right wing to actually believe this. Even Wal Mart didn't oppose the public option. I think Blanche Lincoln should ignore this poll. I doubt it was scientific and I think many people who don't care for the League of Women Voters didn't even participate. Hopefully the other polls are more scientific. If Bill Clinton had been governor and he had been as much of a conservadem as Lincoln and Pryor, how many of you believe he would have been elected?

The US is the most Darwinistic nation in the world. Survival of the fittest and each one is out for themselves. When the government tries to do anything to help or even make things more affordable, too many Americans want the government out at any cost. That is exactly why we are ranked low among other industrialized nations in education, health care, lifespan, infant mortality and even in per capita family income.

I think you are right Farleft. Lincoln wold probably not survive a primary challenge by a progressive Democrat if she votes against us on procedure. The smart thing for her is to vote with us on cloture and vote against the bill for cover.

She still may not survive down in beautiful but backward Ark. But at least she will make it to the second round.

Weight. I notice this isn't an internet poll, and it was commissioned by a rightwing group.

She's going to vote for it. Voters are split on being indifferent with her. She's got to do something politically risky to avoid a progressgive taking her out and she can probably have a good fight with Baker if she is up to the challenge.

She will vote against it. She won't fall on the sword for Obamacare.
