Poll: Reports That Casey Is A Senate Shoo-In May Be Greatly Exaggerated

A new Rasmussen poll shows Pennsylvania’s Democrat mystery Senator Bob Casey with just a 7% lead over Republican virtual unknown Tom Smith in Pennsylvania’s US Senate Race.

It’s been thought that Casey, with his statewide name recognition, was a virtual lock to win reelection.  But with only a 7% lead even before Smith has campaigned and made his case to voters, it’s not looking so lockish right about now.

A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania finds Casey, who is seeking a second six-year term, with 48% support to Smith’s 41%. Three percent (3%) favor some other candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.


This Pennsylvania survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted May 21, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

It’s not exactly time to get excited, but maybe PA could actually contribute to a Republican take-over of the Senate in November.

    It’s time to retire our legacy pledge senator.

    He got there on his FATHERS name recognition. Since he has gotten there he has been a reliable vote for every socialist hornswaggle that has come down the pike and even has advanced some on his own

    The man is an epic non entity and a run of the mill marxist stooge.
