I received a robo call on Wednesday night from a 501 area code number (Little Rock) asking some interesting questions. What was also interesting was that this phone call only asked a total of three questions pertaining to politics. Here they are:

1) Do you view Blanche Lincoln favorably or unfavorably?

2) Do you view Bill Halter favorably or unfavorably?

3) In a Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, would you vote for Blanche Lincoln or Bill Halter?

There were a couple of other questions on sex and race.

Seems to me that someone wants to find out just how dangerous a primary may be for Blanche Lincoln. A recent poll shows Blanch Lincoln above 50% in unfavorability ratings and job disapproval in the state.

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable impression of Blanche Lincoln?
15% Strongly Favorable
19% Somewhat Favorable (Favorable = 34%)
11% Somewhat Unfavorable
46% Strongly Unfavorable (Unfavorable = 57%)
9% No Opinion

Thinking about the job that Blanche Lincoln is doing as U.S. Senator, would you say you approve or disapprove?
15% Strongly Approve
23% Somewhat Approve (Approve = 38%)
7% Slightly Disapprove
49% Strongly Disapprove (Disapprove = 56%)
6% No Opinion


The consequences of her opposition to the public option among other issues is the likely reason for her favorability among Democrats being only at 61%, extremely low for an incumbent Senator from the Democratic Party. The polls are showing that a primary challenge may not only be a good idea for Bill Halter, but for anyone who wants to keep this Senate seat in Democratic hands in 2010.
