Election 2010 Pennsylvania Senate: Republican Pat Toomay Leads Dem Arlan Specter, Poll ‘near fatal’ for Specter


Specter in real trouble in PA … Could the Senate seat go back to being Republican again? Could this election be another commentary on Barack Obama and the far swing to the LEFT?

Republican challenger Pat Toomay still leads incumbent Republican turned Democratic Senator Arlen Specter by 45%–40%. The more the discussion goes on regarding Obamacare and is pushed down the throats of Americans, the worse Specter’s numbers will get.

Forty-six percent (46%) of Pennsylvania voters have a favorable opinion of Specter while 52% offer an unfavorable assessment of the longtime GOP senator who became a Democrat in April rather than face Toomey in a party primary. Those numbers are a few points better than they were in August.

Just 17% have a Very Favorable opinion of Specter while 37% hold a Very Unfavorable view. The comparable numbers for Toomey are 14% Very Favorable and nine percent (9%) Very Unfavorable. Sestak earns Very Favorable reviews from 10% and Very Unfavorable assessments from 11%.

A Susquehanna Poll in February found 38% of Pennsylvania’s believed Specter deserved to be re-elected. It has got worse. Only 31% now believe that Democratic Senator Arlen Specter should be re-elected, while 59% believe that it’s time for new blood.

More poll numbers at Real Clear Politics show that Specter sounds beats Sestak in the Democratic primary.

      what kind of problem does barack obama have with seniors in the united states. he say’s, there is no cost of living increase, and no increase to social security benefits to seniors, yet he approved a 2.9 per cent increase and congress approved a 3.9 per cent increase in military pay to start 01/01/2010. why is he talking out of both sides of his mouth, or is it, he just does not know he is talking about. i am a 100% disabled viet nam veteran with 30 months of service in viet nam and 14 years of service in the army. does obama lose any sleep over the facts that, he is (excuse me) screwing the seniors of america. not only with ssi and also his health plan. he should spend more time being the president, than trying to promote his future as a tv star.

      3.9% should be 3.4%
