Q Poll: All Tied Up In Pennsylvania Dem Senate Primary


The new poll is the latest to show Sestak closing fast on Specter. The April 7 Q poll of the primary showed a 53-32 Specter lead. As recently as May 4, Specter was still ahead in the Q poll by a comfortable margin of 47-39.

But Specter still has plenty of room to come back, with 14% of Democratic voters saying they're still undecided.

Quinnipiac pollster Peter Brown said that though Sestak clearly has the momentum, it might be too early to count Specter out entirely.

"Arlen Specter has a history of winning close elections and he'll need that to continue because his once commanding lead is gone," he said. "His margin over Sestak is too close to call."
