Merlin on the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Senate race…..

Hi Dog!

The gap in the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Primary has somewhat closed according to a new Statewide Survey of 425 Likely Primary Votes. Incumbent Senator Arlen Specter is barely over 50 % but leads his Main Rival U. S. Rep. Joseph A. Sestak by 15 Points. Last month Specter led Sestak by 22 Points.

Rasmussen Survey

Pennsylvania Senate 2010

Democratic Primary

Incumbent Senator Arlen Specter  51 %
U. S. Rep. Joseph A. Sestak  36 %
Others  4 %
Undecided  9 %

Merlin’s Observation:

I don’t think Specter will just walk away with this. This thing will get tighter as Primary Election Day approaches. The Primary is May 18th.


From the Dog……Ole’ Arlen Spector will be the Democratic nominee…The question will be the numbers (expected shortly) on Spector vs Toomey, who led both Democrats last month…..Spector now has the parties endorsement…..it’s nine months from election day…….
