commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The Political Dog read on Connecticut and Arkansas senate races, at this time……

Our feel for the two senate races is this…….

Connecticut Senate 2010

Dodd in peril. Senior Senator of the Nutmeg State trails Challenger by quite some margin. While it isn’t by the 13-Point double-digit margin current Polls suggesting Dodd is highly vulnerable. The good thing for him: He’s well over 40 %

Rob Simmons (R) 54, 57 %
Chris Dodd (D) 45,43 %

Arkansas Senate 2010

Lincoln vulnerable but State (History, Patterns, Trends) of her Senate Seat working in her favor AND again the Senator is not in the low 40ties everyone supposed to believe.

Gilbert Baker (R) 52,43 %
Blanche Lincoln (D) 47,57 %

Dodd while in trouble can expect some visits by Air Force One carry a President that needs every democratic senator he can get…remember he has a history with the states voters……he’ll have to come home more often…doing the nations work…doesn’t always translate to local votes…..

Blanche Lincoln voted for the Healthcare Bill and is getting beat up for it (pro-lifers)….she has a little less than a year to manuever…if the dem’s let her go the right on a few issues in the spring, she will be okay……
