Toomey Up By 7 In PA Senate Race

It's a Rasmussen poll, so you know it's Hitler approved.

Congressman Joe Sestak’s post-primary bounce appears to over, and he now trails Republican rival Pat Toomey by seven points in the U.S. Senate contest in Pennsylvania.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Toomey with 45% support, while Sestak earns 38%. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided.

...Nearly three-out-of-four voters in the state say they have been following news stories about the secret Obama White House job offer to Sestak in hopes that he would drop his primary challenge of Specter, and 52% say that offer is at least somewhat important in terms of how they will vote. Forty-one percent (41%) view the job offer as unimportant. This includes 29% for whom it is Very Important and 20% who say it’s Not At All Important.


Toomey is playing it smart
on the job offer by letting surrogates handle it while he focuses on more meat and potato issues.

I'm glad Specter was gone but I really wish he had survived long enough to let Toomey administer the finishing blow. It's the sentimentalist in me.
