Rasmussen puts Sestak within 4

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey’s 10-point lead over U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak, D-7, of Edgmont, in a Rasmussen Reports survey two weeks ago has been cut to just 4 points in a new poll released Friday.
According to the new Rasmussen poll of 750 likely voters conducted Oct. 21, voters favored Toomey, of Zionsville, 48 percent to Sestak’s 44 percent.
A Rasmussen survey conducted Oct. 12 had Toomey up 49 percent to Sestak’s 39 percent, with 10 percent undecided. Some of those appear to have sidled over to Sestak, with 7 percent still undecided.
That is consistent with other recent surveys that have shown Sestak gaining ground on Toomey, whose support has remained steady over the summer.
Both Rasmussen polls had a 95 percent level of confidence with a 4 point margin of error.
