Republican Pat Toomey still stands just short of 50% against Democrat Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Pennsylvania Voters shows Toomey with 49% support to Sestak’s 40% when leaners are included. Four percent (4%) favor another candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
In surveys since early February, Toomey’s support has ranged from 42% to 49%. Except for a brief surge following his mid-May primary victory over incumbent Senator Arlen Specter, Sestak's support in that same period has run from 36% to 42%.
The survey of 500 likely voters was conducted Wednesday with a 4-point MoE.
