msm? hello?

Huffington Post (Oct 21): Two new statewide polls released overnight confirm Democrat Joe Sestak’s rebound in the Pennsylvania Senate race, while a batch of new California surveys shows Democrats Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown maintaining narrow leads.

In Pennsylvania, a new Quinnipiac University survey released this morning confirms that Democrat Joe Sestak has closed the gap with Republican Pat Toomey, showing Toomey up by a slim two-point margin (48% to 46%) that falls well within the poll’s margin of error. Quinnipiac’s last Pennsylvania survey showed Toomey leading by seven (50% to 43%). Meanwhile, last night’s tracking poll update from Muhlenberg College/Morning Call now shows the race to be dead even (43% each).

In California, a single poll released earlier this week helped fuel talk about a narrowing  of the California Senate race. However, four new polls released since collectively show Senator Boxer maintaining a modest lead over Republican challenger Carly Fiorina.

The new surveys also show a slightly wider lead for Democrat Jerry Brown over Republican Meg Whitman. The PPIC poll shows Brown leading by eight points (44% to 36%), SurveyUSA has Brown up by seven (47% to 40%), and Fox Pulse show him with a 5-point advantage (48% to 43%)

    Thank you! I have been feeling so depressed about all this and you’re cheering me up! I have been avoiding the news because I’m sick of hearing about the Republican tidal wave.

      Hey Helen, hang in there – there is plenty of good news for Democrats out there (eg see Joe Sestak and Barbara Boxer’s polling figures today), the media just isn’t sharing it. And the early voting figures for registered Dems are waaaaaaaaaaay better than anyone expected. This fight is FAR from over! Keep the faith, Helen 😉
