Republican Asa Hutchinson is hot on Democrat Mike Beebe's trail, closing within 4 points of the frontrunner in the Arkansas campaign for Governor, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
"For most of the year, the Democrat enjoyed a double digit lead. Then, July’s survey showed Beebe on top 47% to 40%," reports Rasmussen.
But Attorney General Beebe's advantage continues to evaporate, in part due to a better performance by Congressman Hutchinson among his base.
"The current poll shows Hutchinson performing better with his base, pulling support from 81% of GOP voters. Comparatively, 73% of Democrats say they support Beebe," reports Rasmussen.
This was a survey of 500 likely Arkansas voters on August 15th.
