    Sestak has a better chance of defeating Toomey, definitely. This is not a good year to be an incumbent, and especially not one who has angered both Republicans and Democrats.
    Sounds like Toomey vs Sestak will be more of a Republican primary. LOL

    Too early. Everyone knows Corbett, he's been AG here for years. Much can happen between now and election day.

    Six months ago, Specter was hugely ahead of Sestak, too.

    We can even take it further. Look at the trend in the poll The Prof so kindly provided. In the last month, democrats gained 5 % on republicans. Next month, if the trend continues, the polling should be dead even, and by election time, solidly democrat. The Prof is the bearer of very good news for liberals. I think we should all thank him kindly.

    It is true that Democrats have grown in popularity, but we see Democrats running against Obama's agenda and according to conservative principals. Democrat support is growing, but Obama job approval is dropping. RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    It seems if the Democrats run against Obamacare and act as moderates/conservatives they could win.

    Touche! that was actually pretty good....I was however just trying to illustrate that Mods although have a responsibility to monitor the boards for in-fractious behavior, they are also posters with opinions which should not be foregone just because they are doing a service as a mod.

    Obama is not the democratic party. Pretty much all of us disagree with him on something. When any presidents job approval is low, those of his party will run against certain things of his. Democrats are not running as republicans or conservatives, only highlighting where they disagree with Obama. If Obama's approval rating was high, they would highlight where they agree.
