Specter's Lead Vanishes in Pennsylvania

A new Quinnipiac poll in Pennsylvania finds Sen. Arlen Specter's (D-PA) lead over challenger Pat Toomey (R) has disappeared.

Specter now barely edges Toomey, 45% to 44%, and by a 49% to 40% margin, voters say Specter does not deserve reelection.

Less than three months ago, Specter had a 20 point lead.

In another possible match up, Toomey would beat Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA), 39% to 35%, if he were to prevail in a Democratic primary.
