Toomey continues to gain in Muhlenberg poll

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey, of Zionsville, continued stretching his lead over Democratic candidate U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak, D-7, of Edgmont, in a new Muhlenberg College/Morning Call daily tracking poll Tuesday.
According to a poll of 448 likely voters conducted October 22-25, Toomey added one point to yesterday’s 47-42 lead while Sestak dropped two points.
Toomey now leads 48-40 with 12 percent of voters undecided.
Toomey was leading in polls throughout the summer, but the two candidates were in a dead heat in Muhlenberg surveys released October 21 and 22.
Toomey has been leading in four consecutive tracking polls, but this is the first time he has gotten outside the 5 percent margin of error threshold.
His favorability ratings slipped one point in this poll, however, to 37 percent. Another 36 percent view Toomey favorably and 27 percent are ambivalent.
Sestak’s favorability ratings also went down a point. He is now viewed favorably by 35 percent of those polled and unfavorably by 38 percent. Twenty-seven percent said they still don’t know enough about him to form an opinion.
The Muhlenberg College/Morning Call tracking poll will update daily until Nov. 1, one day before the midterm election.
