CNN/Time Poll: Coons Up By 16 On O’Donnell In Delaware

A new CNN/Time poll of the Delaware Senate race shows Democratic nominee Chris Coons ahead of Republican Christine O’Donnell by double-digits.

The latest survey has Coons leading the race 55%-39%. Since this is the first CNN/Time poll on the contest, there are no numbers available for direct comparison. A Fox News poll out yesterday painted a similar picture of the race, giving Coons a 15-point advantage over the embattled O’Donnell.

Recent numbers are confirming the widely held belief that Republicans lost an almost-guaranteed Senate seat pickup when O’Donnell claimed the Republican nomination. When the Fox poll asked respondents to suppose Congressman Mike Castle (the Republican establishment favorite) had won the GOP nomination, he was found on top 48%-33% in a matchup with Coons. In today’s CNN/Time poll, a similar result was produced — Castle would be ahead of Coons 55%-37%.

The TPM Poll Average shows Coons leading O’Donnell 55.0%-39.6%. The margin of error of the latest survey is ±3.5 percentage points.
