Field Marshal:

That's a large sample for a state poll for Ras. Wow, Rendell is not popular at all there and Obama is at 50% in a solid blue state. Interesting.

Rasmussen thinks of all states as red states. As people know Sestak better and better, he may have a chance to beat Specter so Dems can have a young fresh face on the ticket, and someone who has been loyal to democratic causes for life not for 8 months.

Xenobion:

PA has always been a purple state. Its always featured with Ohio as a battleground state. With that said I'm surprised how Specter has increased his favorables in such a short amount of time.

Sestak name recognition still low, that probably accounts for his poor general election showing...
