Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) could be facing a far tougher reelection bid than he might have thought. Just 37 percent of likely voters aid the Arkansas Democrat deserves to be reelected in a new poll conducted by Magellan Strategies BR.

Nearly half (47 percent) of likely voters aid it was time for a new person to be in the seat, while 28 percent said he should “definitely” be reelected.

The survey found that Pryor’s support for the Affordable Care Act and the federal stimulus cost him with Arkansas voters—66 percent say those two issues make them less likely to vote for Pryor.

Rep. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) announced last week his bid for Pryor’s seat.
