Halter Topped?

Last night I wondered whether some Kos-backed polls showing Blanche Lincoln in real trouble in the Arkansas Democratic Senate primary runoff were reliable.

In the race to see who loses to Republican John Boozman, I thought incumbent Arkansas senator Blanche Lincoln had the advantage over Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. The polling during the runoff says otherwise, but I’d feel better if we had one poll that wasn’t Daily Kos/Research 2000.

I should have beaten the drum on this point louder: Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman Tweets, “#ARSEN not really as close as it looks right now. In my estimation Lincoln appears to have hung on to beat Halter.”
