Why Marsha is losing in the polls:

In a blatant campaign event in her run for the United States Senate, Blackburn stood there with a straight face and talked about how great it is that ORNL received an increase in funding for fiscal year 2019 and promised that she would continue to fight to keep the research center fully funded.

To be blunt, that is D.C. double-speak at its worst because Blackburn actually voted against ORNL funding when she voted against the Omnibus Spending Bill, which contained the funding for all federal programs, in March. She even shot out a press release touting her vote and she proudly tweeted that she voted against funding.
