First Post Debate Poll -- Santorum Down 13

Rasmussen's latest figures on the Pennsylvania Senate race show that, despite dismal, lackluster, or uninspiring debate performances by the Democratic challenger, Republican incumbent Rick Santorum is not making any positive movement with less than three weeks to go until election day.

The results made public today put the margin at 13 points, the same as Rasmussen's previous release on October 10. In the latest survey, Casey is favored by 54% of the respondents, as against Santorum with 41%. This spread is in the same range as the 12 point difference reported in the latest DSCC internal polling on the race.

As per usual, Rasmussen is stingy with the crosstabs -- for which you have to pay big bucks. But they offer that the margin barely moves when leaners are included. In that case, Casey picks up 1% of the undecideds and Santorum 2%, for a 12-point difference. Santorum's favorables are at 46% and Casey's at 57%.

Did you see that Rick McStupid compared Iraq to Mordor from the Lord of the Rings yesterday?

It's stupid shit like that which keeps him from being a real threat to anyone but his constituents and the US Constitution.

It begs the question...How is it possible that this obvious idiot is considered the 3rd most powerful in the Senate? Seems to me like they need to take away his toys and his Trilogy, and direct him to read newspapers.

Oh...Wait...I made the connection...He doesn't read or use reason, so Dumbya likes him especially well.

This just in--Dewey--oh no Truman wins. Even if Ricky were ahead in thease 'polls' Casey would "win."

Dems' turn to win a PA senate seat. Even Steinbrenner know he if he were to "win The W/S every year," Baseball would die.
