You've got a typo on the chart. It lists the poll as Toomey 48 - Sestak 49.

I'd say within two points of where the race probably is. An independent poll yesterday had it as a 4 point race among LVs. That poll will be the first of 4 over the next month so, we'll see whether the landscape shifts.

Toomey's favorables are still very high. If Sestak can't depress them he'll get blown out. I think this race is winnable for Dems because negative campaigning can definitely drive Toomey's popularity down to earth through skillful presentation of his ultra-conservative positions to PA's older and more government-dependent electorate (they're one of the oldest electorates in the nation) That would bring the race into MOE.
