Quinnipiac Poll: GOPer Toomey Leads By 7 In PA-SEN Race


A Quinnipiac poll of the Pennsylvania Senate race out this morning shows Republican former Rep. Pat Toomey leading Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak 50%-43%.

The latest survey is the first Quinnipiac poll of the contest since a July 11 poll found the race deadlocked at 43%-43%. A number of polls have come out this week with similar findings to today’s survey: A September 18 Fox News poll had Toomey leading Sestak 48%-40%, the September 16 Times Leader survey showed the Republican up 40%-36%, and a Municipoll survey from the same day found Toomey with a nine-point advantage, 45%-36%.

The TPM Poll Average finds Toomey comfortably ahead in the contest, leading Sestak 47.0%-39.0%.

The latest survey’s margin of error is ±3.8 percentage points.
