What Arkansas Knows
Arkansas had a rough day yesterday with storms so I hate to point out a survey released this week that finds a quarter of Arkansas adults don't know which party controls the legislature (Dems, apparently. Go figure). What's interesting is that over two years, the last time the same question was asked, the poll found 11 percent thought incorrectly it was the Republicans. Now 26 percent think so. So inaccuracy has increased, perhaps because of GOP national successes in Congress. That's interesting in and of itself, a halo effect of sorts, a national perception having statewide consequences, at least in perception.
