Dan Boren is the first Democratic member of Congress Public Policy
Polling has found with an approval rating over 50% since last October, and because of
that he holds a solid lead over all of his potential Republican challengers for this fallís
election.

51% of his constituents approve of Boren with 33% disapproving and 17% holding no
opinion. His approval with Republicans is a positive 47/38 spread, very unusual for a
Democratic politician these days. He actually has lower than usual numbers within his
own party at 55/27 and heís on slightly negative ground with independents at 40/43,
reflecting the fact that independents donít like any politicians right now.
Boren leads his Republican opponents by anywhere from 16 to 27 points, with birther
candidate Miki Booth getting 7-8% in each match up. At this point Daniel Edmonds
comes the closest to Boren, trailing 44-28. Charles Thompson is down 45-25, Howard
Houchen trails 48-26, and Dan Arnett has a 49-22 deficit.

None of the Republican candidates are particularly well known at this point and itís
certainly possible that their standing will improve once they have a nominee and start
becoming better known. Edmonds has 21% name recognition, Thompson has 20%,
Arnettís is 19%, and Houchenís is 18%.

Boren remains popular but his national party certainly isnít. Barack Obamaís approval in
the district is only 27% and just 17% of voters support the Democratic health care bill
that Boren opposed in November.
ďA lot of Democrats in McCain districts are in big trouble this year but Dan Borenís
doing alright,Ē said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. ďHe looks safe.Ē

Well, he's a Republican in all but official label.

This is fact.
Take a look at his voting record. The only difference between him and the Oklahoma Republican contingent is that he doesn't have the same extremist blowhard rhetoric.

Personally I would rather DINOs to stay in congress because if the GOP takes control of the house in 2010, we are going to be to blame, but with DINOs we can still get conservative bills passed but still blame the dems. maybe? lol...

This is good to see.  No suprise.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Isn't he the one who didn't endorse Obama even after he clinched the nomination? I'm sure this is probably helping him out as well in a state where both John McCain and Hillary Clinton carried every county (save for Oklahoma County which Obama narrowly won in the primaries). He should be pretty safe seeing as how he is a DINO.

You know the really terrible thing in Oklahoma?

Ballot access laws are so terrible that I probably wouldn't even be able to vote for a Green or Libertarian.

No because Pelosi won't allow such bills to come to a vote and Obama could veto them anyway.
