Toomey Leading Specter and Sestak by Double Digits

By Caomhin

Awesome news, and further proof that the Democrats’ efforts to paint those opposed to massive government expenditures, promises of tax increases across the board, sky rocketing debt, and inflation as “Astroturf” are anything but that.  Rather, we are the majority and there are so many more independents, Libertarians, and Republicans who are speaking out for the first time, it is overwhelming them.  Remember a few months ago when even squishy GOP insiders were saying that Pat had “no shot at winning” the seat in PA and were still backing Specter?  Yea, I do too.  Looks like we were right and the political mainstream, pundits, and media were all wrong.  Again.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Pennsylvania voters shows 48% would vote for Toomey if the election were held today. Just 36% would vote for Specter while four percent (4%) prefer a third option, and 12% are not sure.

If Congressman Joe Sestak is the Democratic nominee instead of Specter, Toomey still leads but by a smaller margin. The polling shows 43% for Toomey and 35% for Sestak. In June, Sestak had a six-point edge over Toomey.

His lead over Specter should continue to rise as well, as Specter has performed so poorly at town halls, even saying that he “doesn’t have any requirement to be here.” This is true, and the more our great Commonwealth gets to know Pat, Specter won’t be there at all. Pat will be our new Senator, bringing much needed common sense to Senate and giving us a Senator in whom we can be proud.  There’s no video out yet, but as I tweeted yesterday, Joe Sestak gave a wonderful performance on Greta Van Susteren in which he dropped the gem that we need to pass Obamacare “in order to compete with China,” and “it doesn’t matter that 53% of Pennsylvanians oppose” Obamacare, he’s going to vote for it anyway.
