Toomey Pulling Away From Sestak, Obama's Support Craters In Keystone State

Sestak must be wondering if that job offer from Obama is still on the table.

Pat Toomey has taken a 45-36 lead in the Pennsylvania Senate race. That's a big change from the tie PPP saw in a June survey of the race but pretty similar to the solid Toomey lead our April survey showed.

Toomey's winning for the same reasons most Republican candidates across the country are doing well in key races right now:

-He has a 50-23 lead with independent voters.

-He's benefiting from a much more unified party, as he leads 74-9 with Republicans while Sestak is currently up only 64-15 with Democrats.

...The biggest key to the race is probably Obama's considerably fallen popularity. His approval rating stands at only 40% with 55% of voters disapproving of him, one of the biggest declines from 2008 performance we've seen for him anywhere in the country. Part of Obama's low numbers is a reflection of the Republican trending voter pool in the state this year, but there are also more people who voted for Obama but disapprove of him now in Pennsylvania than there are most places.

All those damn bitter clingers and Mutha "rednecks".

As you may have noticed, this is a PPP poll and they are the new official polling outfit for Kos, so you know, it's not going to be GOP friendly. Yet the Democrat still gets walloped and Obama's numbers are still in the tank.
