A new Rasmussen poll of the Delaware Senate race shows Republican Rep. Mike Castle way ahead of the top potential Democratic candidate, in the race for Vice President Biden’s former Senate seat.
The numbers: Castle 56%, New Castle County Executive Chris Coons 27%. Coons is considering getting into the race, after yesterday’s news that state Attorney General Beau Biden, a son of Vice President Biden, would not run for the seat.
From the pollster’s analysis: “While 86% of Republicans support Castle, just 49%of Delaware Democrats back Coons. Thirty-one percent (31%) of Democrats favor the moderate GOP candidate. Sixty-one percent (61%) of the state’s unaffiliated voters choose Castle at this point.”
