commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Daniel…..Pennsylvania Senate: Democratic Senate Primary now a DEAD HEAT; Toomey leads General Election Head-to-Heads by 10 and 11 Points……..

Hello Dog!

I promised our Readers to have a more in depth look at the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary Survey from Rasmussen Reports who came out yesterday showing the Primary between Specter and Sestak now a DEAD HEAT.

We’re now officially under 5 weeks away from that “Super Primary Tuesday” on May 22nd where 4 States (Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Arkansas and Oregon) are holding Primaries.

The Poll Results could be attributed that Voters are USUALLY paying more Attention to Races like this when Election Day draws nearer. After all the good Polling Specter probably thought he would win this Primary in a walk – HE WON’T. Honestly it was a big surprise seeing Specter jumping out to this big lead after all his “Party Swiching” and “Flip-Flopping”.

Currently may still be the Favourite to be the Democratic Nominee in November BUT I’ll watch this Race closely. If the Average narrowes further during the last weeks of April we could have a REAL RACE on our hands come May.

Remember: Just this week SUSA putting out a Survey showing Conway erasing Mongiardo’s lead in Kentucky from 18 Points to 3 in just 4 weeks. The same could happen here.

  1. Toomey came very close to ending Specter’s political career in 2004 if it hadn’t been from the intervention from Bush Jr., and Santorum who bailed ol Arlen out.
