Little Ricky's in trouble
Man-on-Dog better find some traction, or he’ll be hitting the winger speaking circuit after the election. I wonder how much money Mehlman and the meaningless, ineffective vessel Empty Wig Dole (of the National Repug Senatorial Committee) will want to throw behind Ricky’s sinking ship?
Pennsylvania State Treasurer Robert Casey, Jr., has opened a 52 – 34 percent lead over incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum in the 2006 Senate race, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to a 50 – 39 percent Casey lead in a July 13 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN uh-pe-ack) University. Democrats back Casey 81 – 8 percent, and independent voters back him 52 – 29 percent, while Republicans back the incumbent 67 – 22 percent.
Sen. Santorum has a split 43 – 41 percent job approval, his lowest ever and down from a 51 – 35 percent approval rating July 13. Pennsylvania voters split 41 – 42 percent on whether he deserves to be reelected. Santorum’s politics are “about right,” 40 percent say, while 29 percent say he is “too conservative,” and 9 percent say he is “too liberal.”
Who on earth are those 9 percenters that think Santorum‘s a flaming liberal?
