Joe Sestak Pulls Even With Pat Toomey


...in two new polls:
Democrat Joe Sestak has clawed his way into a statistical tie with Republican Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate race, according to two new internal Democratic polls.

Toomey was leading Sestak 46 percent to 45 percent among likely voters in a poll conducted for Sestak's campaign by David Petts, of the Washington firm Bennett, Petts and Normington, and obtained by The Philadelphia Inquirer. The survey of 800 likely voters was conducted Oct. 4-6, and results were subject to a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Also, a poll conducted for the Democratic Senatatorial Campaign Committee by Garin-Hart-Yang over the last week showed Sestak leading Toomey 44 percent to 42 percent. When "leaners" were pushed to make a choice, Sestak went up 47 percent to 44 percent. The poll was based on 606 likely voters.

The majority of public polls taken in the past couple of months,however, have found the Republican leading the race for the seat of Sen. Arlen Specter (D.,Pa.).
Granted, they are Democratic polls, but we cannot deny the evidence that Pat Toomey will have to work hard for the next month to win this race. I think that many analysts have written-off Joe Sestak long ago -- and I think that was a mistake.
