Bloodbath!!!!!

Specter panders to the black crowd with his newest ad.

I said sestak would only win by 1% to 2% in earlier posts. Specter is Penn. Politics so this will be a squeaker. But the dem winner will be toomey by 2-4 points.

I still think that Specter will win 51% to 49% like he did against Pat Toomey. Anyone who lives in PA is being bombarde by ads right now. I also noticed that Specter only became competitive against Toomey once Joe Sestak announced he was primarying Specter. It doesn't do Specter's approval ratings any favors when Sestak goes on the Ed show and continues to bash him day after day after day. It seems like Sestak is more of a liability than an asset to the democratic party and if Sestak some how wins the primary many dems will be so turned off by Sestak that he will lose to Toomey.

Seems to me Sestak is going to be the nominee, and Specter continually bashing him will do us no favors. At least you can be certatin that Sestak will vote for Obama's nominees unlike Specter.

Obamalover, Specter is leading in the poll above by 2 after trailing this weekend, I wouldn't be so sure of Sestak being the nominee.

I've been looking at Specters ads and they are much bettter than Sestaks not to mention Arlen has a long history of winning close elections. It really would not surprise me if he won both the primary and the general. We shall see what happens.

So, it looks like a statistical tie between all the polls today. A tie goes to Specter, 'cos he will have a better ground game. Will he win in November? Who knows...

The momentum seems to be with Sestak. This is a guy who was down by twenty points in January. With less than a week to go, this is beginning to look like the Brown/Cloakley race a week before the election. I think Sestak might squeak this one out.

Lol, I don't see how any reasonable person can think that specter can win in november. He has 100 percent name recognition and still has a 40/60 favorability rating. No undecideds, lol. Typical washington, to support a guy in a democratic primary that isn't even a democrat and is disliked by a majority of voters statewide. It truly is stomach turning.

Obamafan:

Uchenna, Sestak was down 20 points because there were still so many undecideds. The past day or two with more undecideds weighing in, it looks like it's going back in Specter's direction. It's a close race and I heard way back that it was going to be. This is actually not surprising.

Toomey's background isn't all that contreversial. He doesn't sound like a radical religious freak like Bob Mcdonnell or Santorum, but I could be wrong.
