Nobody is favorable according to this Poll, but I doubt that they are accurate on Casey.

@ FL

Agree. This must have been a pretty angry sample.

The whole electorate is angry and that usually means bad times ahead for the party in power.

You wanted health reform, right, Specter?

This race is going to be a blood-bath. This is going to be Obama's favorite senate stop after the Illinois race.

Specter 43
Toomey 46

PPP shows 18% of blacks voting for Toomey and 11% are unsure. From a party outcome perspective, this race is dead-even to me.

If Specter wants to win this race he better make sure that Rendell/Nutter/Obama can get the early black vote in Philly. The impact of those activities will flip this race either way.

It looks like Specter's net positive won't be greater then a 3-5 point range victory on election day.

Pennsylvania is the happiest state in the union, so I don't know why these clingers are unhappy with Specter. I do wish Sestak gains on Specter and get nominated. Specter is trash.

Some of these people who are supposed to vote for Specter spent years and years voting against him. he will have low energy and turn out on his side. Where Toomey's base will be angry and view Specter as a traitor....and angry voters are much more likely to vote than voters who are just so so on there guy.

Sestak I still hope gets the nomination. A real Dem in the notion that he's not a turncoat.

Spector is closing the gap. Turnout in Philly will be key for him.
