For his Democratic primary, in which he's now being challenged by Rep. Joe Sestak, Specter holds a lead of 44%-16%, with very high undecideds and the incumbent under 50% against an opponent who is not well known statewide. In a general election against Toomey, Specter has 42% to Toomey's 41%, within the ±3.7% margin of error.

Unfortunately, a Toomey vs. Sestak match-up was not tested, which would have given us an interesting comparison.
