Arlen Specter's Political Graveyard Spiral: Toomey 48%, Specter 36%

Per Rasmussen Reports, it appears that Arlen Specter's re-election prospects are dim and that his numbers are in what pilots call a "graveyard spiral".

Pennsylvania Senate: Toomey 48%, Specter 36%

Uncomfortable town hall meetings are just the tip of the iceberg for Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter. He now trails Republican Pat Toomey by double digits in his bid for reelection next year and is viewed unfavorably by a majority of the state’s voters.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Pennsylvania voters shows 48% would vote for Toomey if the election were held today. Just 36% would vote for Specter while four percent (4%) prefer a third option, and 12% are not sure.
