commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

From Daniel G…..Pennsylvania Senate: Specter leads Sestak by 24 Points in Democratic Primary; Regains lead over Toomey in the General new Q-Pac Survey shows …..

Morning Dog!

Some good News for your Party this morning. According to a new Quinnipiac University Survey in the Keystone State Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) has widened his lead over Primary Rival Joseph A. Sestak (D-PA) to 24 Points. More importantly: He now leads his Republican General Election Rival, former U. S. Rep. Patrick J. “Pat” Toomey (R-PA) by 7 Points.

Quinnipiac University Survey

Job Approvals

President Barack Obama (D)

Senator Arlen Specter (D)

Disapprove  45 %
Not Sure  6 %

Senator Bob Casey Jr. (D)

Not Sure  18 %

Folks, something is VERY FISHY here. Clearly Q-Pac does seem to see a completely different Electorate in this Race. To put this in perspective: A Franklin & Marshall Survey just released last week showed Toomey ahead of Specter (44-34) and a Rasmussen Survey done February 8th showed Toomey ahead (47-38). Something has to be wrong here. There can’t be an 11-Point Swing in just one week friends. Quinnipiac is usually a good Pollster so I don’t know why they see it so differently.

The Dog will only say that he has cautioned everyone that sooner or later the ‘Scoot Brown’ effect would wear off….and that Republican’s were expecting much too much for November ( like the democrats after Obama’s win )…it’s early but let’s see……ole’ Arlen still has a lot of fans out there…..

  1. Spector is also 5-0 in statewide elections in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, so it’ll be interesting to see if Corbett’s coattails will help down-ballot.

    The PA governor’s race is a lost cause, but Casey Jr., is secretly plotting for Harrisburg come 2014 or maybe 2018-assuming he serves 2 full six-year terms in the United States Senate.

    I know Casey Jr., badly wants to be governor.
