The Evaporation of Arlen Specter’s Lead Was Predictable

Not to brag, but I wrote on May 3: “I’ll make an audacious prediction: Joe Sestak will beat Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary.”

Four days later, the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion and the Morning Call begin their tracking poll and find: “Incumbent Senator Arlen Specter and challenger Congressman Joe Sestak are tied in the race to garner the Democratic Party nomination for the United States Senate.”

More importantly, this is the first poll to find them tied.
