Witchcraft: O'Donnell Makes Up Ten Points In New Poll?

It appears so:

O’Donnell Closing in on Opponent in Latest Poll

Wilmington, Del. – Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, is now within 11 points of her opponent, New Castle County Executive Chris Coons. It marks a 10-point jump following the debate on Wednesday at the University of Delaware.

“It is clear that as voters become increasingly aware of my opponent’s liberal record of increasing taxes and wasteful spending, they understand the real choice that they face on November 2,” said O’Donnell, who would be seated immediately to fight in the lame duck session should she win the election.

“Does Washington really need another career politician rubber-stamping the radical agenda which has put our country on the wrong track? Delawareans know that we have an opportunity to send a message to Washington -- to stop the tax hikes, the bailouts, the slush funds, and cronyism by returning power to We the People.”

The poll was conducted on Oct. 14 by Rasmussen Reports, and had a very scientific 500 likely voter sample. The results are as follows: 40% Christine O’Donnell 51% Chris Coons 5% Some other candidate 4% Not sure

That's still a big gap but it's doable, at least. Anyone within six on on the eve of the elections not only has a chance, but might even be favored.
