Specter Approval Plummets

A new Franklin & Marshall poll in Pennsylvania finds Sen. Arlen Specter's (D-PA) job approval rating dropped from 52% in March to 34% in June. However, even more troubling for the senator is that the proportion of state residents who believe he deserves re-election has declined from 40% to 28%.

Among Democrats, 43% say Specter deserves re-election, with 39% saying they want someone else.

In a primary match up with Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA), Specter leads 33% to 13%, but a very large 48% remain undecided.
