This Ohio Democrat Is Undoubted-Lee in Trouble


This is a lousy day if you’re a Democrat running for Senate in the Midwest. First Sestak trails Toomey by nine, and now “the latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of likely voters in Ohio shows Republican Rob Portman picking up 45 percent support, while his Democratic opponent, Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher, earns the vote from 37 percent.”

Public Policy Polling will probably release a poll from Illinois today, too, and if the likely voters of Illinois are anything like the likely voters of Pennsylvania, well, Alexi Giannoulias is probably going to have a lousy day, too.
