Incumbent Senators Arlen Specter (D-Penn.) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) have had tough fights against primary challengers this spring. As polls open today, we look at these two bellwether races with reporters Michael Hibblen of public radio station, KUAR in Little Rock, and Susan Phillips of WHYY in Philadelphia.

We're talking about anti-incumbent fever. Would you vote against your Congressman or Senator today if you could?

I would vote everyone out of office every time. It's time to shake this political class off the government teet. They can get a real job.

I will vote against our incumbent senators and representatives and president because they are all pro-choice (pro-abortion).
