Two days after the primary, the momentum remains on Joe Sestak's side in the Senate race, says the latest Rasmussen poll:
Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak’s victory over longtime Senator Arlen Specter for his party’s nomination Tuesday has given him a bounce in support in Pennsylvania’s general election for U.S. Senate.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Sestak picking up 46% support over Republican nominee Pat Toomey’s 42%. Only three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate while nine percent (9%) are undecided.
Sestak’s support is up six points from earlier this month and is at its highest level yet measured in the race. Two weeks ago, Sestak and Toomey were in a virtual tie.
The poll of 500 likely voters was done May 19 with a MoE of +/-4.5 percentage points.
