LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas: According to Ballotpedia's 2010 ballot measure analysis, the category of hunting had the highest margin of victory among approved measures, and Arkansas's Issue 2 played a key role. As part of Ballotpedia's analysis following the November 2, 2010 general election a comprehensive chart was created to take a closer look at election result percentages by political category and how the country voted on certain issues. Only categories with 5 or more ballot measures on the ballot were included in the analysis.

The chart breaks down the number of measures per issue in all 2010 elections, as well as the number of measures per issue, the percentage of measures that failed and passed in each issue and the average margin of defeat and victory of rejected and approved measures in a given issue.

In analyzing the chart, it was found that the categories with the highest average margin of defeat was state budgets at 40%, while the highest average margin of victory was found in the hunting category at 56%.

Issue 2, which was on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state, won by a margin of 66%.
