Republican Pat Toomey now holds a 10-point lead over Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak, the widest gap between the candidates since early April in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Toomey earning 49% of the vote, while Sestak picks up 39% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, but a sizable 10% remain undecided less than three weeks before Election Day.
The race now moves from Leans GOP to Solid GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
The Pennsylvania Governor's race is also looking solid for Republicans.
UPDATE: Monmouth polling shows Republican Mike Fitzpatrick building a 5-point lead over Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy in PA-08.
UPDATE II: Also from Monmouth, is six-term incumbent Rep. Rush Holt (D) in trouble across the river in NJ-12?
