New Polling Results

David Ray, RPA Communications Director: As you know, March Madness is officially underway (not to be confused with Spending Madness, which has been going on in Washington for many, many years). We hope you’ll take a break from the NCAA tournament games to read our weekly update:

New poll shows Mark Pryor in DEEP trouble
This week, there was great news for 2014, as new polling reveals Senator Mark Pryor is extremely vulnerable heading into the next election. Here are the key findings:
  • Only 36% of Arkansans view Pryor favorably
  • Strong pluralities of Arkansas voters say Pryor’s political beliefs are “liberal” (47%) and that he “sides too much with President Obama” (43%)
  • Pryor begins the election cycle with only 35% on a ballot score and trails a potential Republican challenger by 8%.
You can read more about the poll from National Journal, The Hill, or Politico.

Weekly Webb-cast resumes  - This week’s Webb-cast takes place on-site at the Robinson Center in Little Rock, the site of next Thursday’s “Majority Celebration.” Chairman Webb previews the upcoming event, which will feature guest speakers Reps. Rick Crawford, Tim Griffin, Steve Womack, and Ed Bethune. Don’t worry, you can still get tickets online or by calling Alisha at 501-372-7301.

Voter ID Update
In a big win for those of us who support honest elections, the Senate voted 22-12 to pass Voter ID on Tuesday. Both the House and Senate have now approved this important bill, and it now goes to the Governor’s desk for his consideration. The Governor has not announced whether he will sign or veto this legislation, but we will keep you updated on the outcome.

In the News…
Congressman Tom Cotton appeared on CNN’s State of the Union last Sunday morning to talk about the 10th Anniversary of the Iraq War.
Congressman Tim Griffin announced that he has cut his House office budget for the third time.

Have a great weekend everybody and enjoy the March Madness.
