Polling

We’re very concerned about some recent polling that shows Joe Sestak either closing the lead on Toomey or ahead of him. Polling is obviously not the end all be all, but suffice it to say it has us concerned. Especially considering it was a last minute surge that put Sestak over the top.

If Joe Sestak is elected Senator, he will be the most anti-gun Senator this state has ever had. If we can’t beat Joe Sestak this year, Pennsylvania will not stay pro-gun for long. Every gun owner needs to get out and vote for Toomey. Sestak doesn’t even believe you have a right to have a gun in the home for self-defense. If that’s not too radical for Pennsylvania gun owners, we’re doomed.

  1. It doesn’t surprise me. The Sestak camp has been spending a lot of money on attack ads. Toomey? Not so much until very recently.

    I am waiting for the Rasmussen poll. These other ones seem to have changed drastically, and I don’t see it. The polls don’t match the signs I am seeing in the neighborhood.

    Now these new polls have Toomey/Corbett and Meehan all in close races. I don’t see it. Toomey was 10 points ahead 2 weeks ago. Corbett was a done deal. Meehan was for gone conclusion in Media circles.

    I think the MSM is deep into helping out the demoncrats right now! That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

    I never thought that Toomey had much of a chance anyway. I haven’t seen a single lawn sign, bumper sticker, campaign flyer, or had even a single phone call in support of Toomey here in Philly.

    Nate Silver has a 94% chance of Toomey winning going down to 82% with these new polls. I think all the races are going to get real tight as we approach 11/2.

    Corbett still has a healthy lead, the only recent poll showing things close is a PPP poll, and they are a left-leaning outfit. The Toomey gap closing is being reflected by other pollsters, so that’s why it’s a shocker.

    It’s not out of the question that PA-7 will also be a nail-biter because that district has gone considerably more to the left over the last few years – just look at their state house/senate representation. Add into it that Pat Meehan has run a pretty poor campaign on some fronts, and it’s no surprise that it could be close.

    As for Mobo, I would ask whether you’re helping the campaign put up signs or make phone calls. If you need the information, I can put you in touch with the person coordinating GOTV efforts in Philly. I don’t even live to campaign there, but I have that information.

    I really wonder what caused such a shift from toomey to sestak, hopefully its just temporary
