A Halter victory would have to be partially attributed to the special interests (unions, Moveon) spending ridiculous sums of money to get him elected.

Two victories, though, would at least demonstrate the strength of the online far left, which has militantly opposed Lincoln, and to a lesser degree, Specter. The voters may be moderate, but the candidates -- Halter in particular -- are being pushed by the Kos kids and their ilk.

George Templeton

So do you believe its rank and file Democrats that are disappointed that President Obamas agenda hasnt advanced as far as they wanted or in the matter they wanted and are taking it out on these two senators in the Primary?

It wouldnt be surprising that leftists mistakenly assume that the electorate is more left-wing than reality would support.

In Arkansas, the only question is whether there will be a run-off. There is no way that Halter beats Lincoln. Revelations that Halter outsourced an entire software development department to India, rather than hiring local Arkansas workers, has destroyed his chances. Being linked to outsourcing is really toxic right now in politics.

Christian Liberty

The winners of Republican primaries, even when more conservative, are fully within the mainstream. Meanwhile, the left is pushing candidates further and further out of the mainstream. Republican candidates will be stronger; Democrat candidates will be more radical and ridiculous.This lurch toward liberal priorities coincides with polls showing that the electorate— particularly independents—has shifted significantly to the right since Mr. Obama took office. While some Republican primaries are proving bloody, most are turning out candidates largely in tune with todays public frustration with Washington.The Democratic primaries, by contrast, are generating nominees who are embracing, or even going beyond, the presidents unpopular agenda. This is the feud that may have the bigger consequences for this falls midterms.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704635204575242292247966322.html

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
