Arlen Specter’s Slide Continues
Today, the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion and the Morning Call’s tracking poll in Pennsylvania finds Joe Sestak
up over Sen. Arlen Specter, 47-42 percent, in that state’s Democratic Senate primary.
I wrote on May 3: “I’ll make an audacious prediction: Joe Sestak will beat Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary.”
UPDATE: Rasmussen sees a Sestak surge, too; they put the challenger up, 47 percent to 42 percent.
ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader in Pennsylvania is underwhelmed with Specter’s ads:
Specter has an ad where he touts his experience and gives 3 minor ‘achievements’ (voted for stem cell research, voted to raise minimum wage 8 times, and some other forgettable thing). I turned to my wife and said, “30+ years and that’s all he can come up with?” He -is- in trouble. He won’t beat Sestak.
