Toomey Pulls Ahead Of Specter, Poll Finds

Pennsylvania. Former Republican Rep. Pat Toomey has a narrow lead over Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. Toomey, who trailed Specter 49-42 percent in March, has a 46-41 percent edge against the five-term lawmaker. Toomey also leads Rep. Joe Sestak, who is also seeking the Democratic nomination, 42-34 percent. "On paper, Sen. Specter is vulnerable in the general election because only 36 percent of voters say he deserves another term. But Toomey is so little known that the electorate is torn which way to go," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. The survey of 1,412 voters was conducted March 30 through Monday and has a 2.6-point error margin.
