Poll Shows GOP Ahead

Yesterday a new poll was released from Franklin and Marshall College that shows Republican Tom Corbett up 38 points to Democrat Dan Onorato's 27 points (results from those likely to vote). The results are similar for the US Senate race too: Republican Pat Toomey has a 9 point lead over Democrat Joe Sestak.

The poll also showed that several GOP candidates are leading their Democrat competitors.
