Unlike Bill, Hillary doesn't have much connection to the state, part of the reason why she ran for office in a state she had previously never lived in over Arkansas. She doesn't like the people of Arkansas and the feeling is mutual

The first part is likely true, less so on the second part.  She is doing no worse than Obama--who really has presided over the accelerated downturn of the Democrats in the state.

It likely would have been. But they are not going to forger or forgive eight years of Obama and Clinton's participation in his administration has certainly contributed to this feeling.

All is clear and explained now... Wink

That being said, I actually believe that Arkansas will be more like a +12-14 Trump state in November.

Although the Democratic Party has decided to essentially abandon White Working Class voters over the past two decades, Arkansas still has a strong and resilient tradition as a mostly White state with a recent history of economic populism, and Whites in Arkansas vote much more heavily Democratic than virtually any other "Southern State" with the exception of Kentucky.

Although Trump is likely doing quite well with the retirees in the Ozarks, and Walmart management/administrators, Clinton is still winning the CD where Little Rock is located, and the Delta region (the only slave holding part of the state) will be fairly predictable, it appears that Trump's margins are coming heavily from SW-Arkansas in the scrabble hill country regions.

Why is Clinton not promoting her platform of increasing the minimum wage?Huh

What is going on with the Teamster Union and why isn't Clinton doing better in a state heavily dependent on the transportation sector that moves product down interstate highways and long-haul truckers that drive those rigs?
