Pennsylvania, a very good prospect of a US Senate pick up for Republicans in 2010.
Pennsylvania, the Key Stone State might just be that for Republicans in the 2010 midterm elections. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Republican Pat Toomey leads Democrat incumbent Senator Arlen Specter 49% to 40%. Toomay also leads Democrat Joe Sestak 43% to 35; however, Sestak trails Specter badly in the Democrat primary.
Republican Pat Toomey now leads incumbent Senator Arlen Specter 49% to 40% in Pennsylvania’s race for the U.S. Senate. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Pennsylvania voters also finds Toomey with a 43% to 35% lead over Democratic challenger Joe Sestak.
A month ago Toomey led Specter by four and Sestak by six.
Pat Toomay appears to be widening his lead against his most likely challenger, Arlen Specter. The five point increase from last months polling can most likely be attributed to Obamacare. Once again we see a state where a Democrat Senator refuses to listen to the voters. Only 41% favor Obamacare while 57% are opposed.
Just 41% of Pennsylvania voters favor the health care legislation currently before Congress while 57% are opposed. Those figures include 22% who Strongly Favor the legislation and 47% who are Strongly Opposed.
The situation becomes obvious in so many of these states where the People oppose Obamacare … if a Democrat can lose in Massachusetts because of the People’s anger to the Democrats attempt at government controlled health care, the Democrat can also lose in a state like PA as well.
EXIT QUESTION: How does President Barack Hussein Obama campaign in these states where he is the face of Obamacare and a policy so loathed by Americans?
