Sestak's lead soft in 7th District

Congressman Joseph Sestak, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, fares only marginally better than his Republican opponent, Pat Toomey, in his home Congressional District, according to a new poll from Monmouth University.
According to a poll of 670 likely voters in the 7th Congressional District conducted October 4-6, Sestak holds only a 49-46 percent lead over Toomey – nearly a point within the poll’s 3.8 percent margin of error.
Statewide polls have consistently put Toomey in the lead, sometimes by double digits, but Sestak was generally considered a lock in the southeast.
Respondents were also split over Sestak’s job performance, however, indicating support here could be softer than previously expected.
