PA-Sen: Casey Still Leads Santorum Climbs

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Quinnipiac released another poll today on the 2006 U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania. Bob Casey still holds a commanding lead, but Rick Santorum's numbers are on the rise slightly. There were quite a few questions missing from the release, and I put in a call to see if they had asked about Chuck Pennacchio. I'll update when I hear back.

From July 6 - 10, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,639 Pennsylvania voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points.

If the 2006 election for Senator were being held today, and the candidates were Bob Casey Jr. the Democrat and Rick Santorum the Republican for whom would you vote?

Casey (D): 50%
Santorum (R): 39%
Don't Know: 11%

Looking ahead to the 2006 election for United States Senator, do you feel that Rick Santorum deserves to be reelected, or do you feel that he does not deserve to be reelected?

Deserves to be re-elected: 45%
Does not deserve re-election: 38%
DK/NA: 17%

Much more data to comb through here.

Everyone knows that this is statistical noise. Also the sample size is very small.
