Toomey pulling ahead again in poll
According to a poll of 437 likely voters released Monday, Toomey is now on track for 47 percent of the vote with Sestak trailing at 42 percent. Another 11 percent remain undecided in the latest poll, which was conducted October 21-24 and has a 5 point margin of error.
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 began to pull away again late last week as undecided voters started to dwindle, indicating they could be moving to his camp.
Toomey meanwhile maintained an evenly split 36 percent favorabiltiy rating in the latest tracking poll, with 28 percent saying they are neutral or not sure.
Sestak was viewed favorably by 35 percent of those polled and unfavorably by 37 percent. Twenty-nine 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.
