Statistical tie. Right now looks like a pure toss-up, but look at this...

Do you approve or disapprove of the job that President Barack Obama is doing?


34% Approve
62% Disapprove

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Sen. Mark Pryor is doing?

34% Approve
48% Disapprove

Who do you blame most for the federal government shutdown?


40% President Obama and the Democrats
35% Republicans in Congress
24% Both are equally to blame

Obama's approval is even worse than the 37% of the vote he got in Arkansas in 2012. And a 48-34 disapproval is horrible for an incumbent up for re-election. On top of that, a plurality of people blame the democrats and Obama for the shutdown! Republicans have a massive blame lead in the polls but not in red state Arkansas. This is amazing what were seeing here besides the original question. Also:

Really, WTF is wrong with Arkansas? How does a plurality blame the Democrats? Do they hate a black guy in the Oval Office that much?

That's why Cotton's hammering away at the Pryor brand with pointed references to the Senator not putting Arkansas first. Surprised that Pryor hasn't responded to a frontal assault on the brand b) tried Mediscare. Farm bills and student loans are all he's attacked Cotton for on policy, besides being extremely extreme and all that jazz.
I'm surprised Pryor hasn't attacked Cotton for not putting Arkansas first. The man goes to Congress, shuts down the Government, and announces he's running for another office all in his 10 months in Washington.
