New Poll: Christine O’Donnell is Going to Need Witchcraft to Win
Before the Tea Party loons had their big Delaware primary victory with Christine O’Donnell, Republican incumbent Mike Castle was favored for an easy win.
Then came the teabaggers; Castle was declared a despicable RINO. The anti-masturbation, anti-evolution religious fanatic candidate was in! The Tea Party’s march to greatness was under way!
They didn’t notice they were marching down a dead end street: Latest poll on Delaware Senate, House races shows Democrats with commanding leads despite Tea Party Republican Effort.
Newark, DE - Newark, DE – Four weeks before Election Day 2010, Delaware Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Chris Coons holds a commanding 19-point lead over his Republican opponent, Christine O’Donnell. A new poll of 901 Delaware residents conducted by the University of Delaware’s non- partisan Center for Political Communication finds 49% supporting Coons and 30% supporting O’Donnell.
The poll reveals a large number of undecided Delawareans – 13%. Coons’ lead widens to 24 points when the probable decisions of undecided voters are taken into account for the poll’s final estimate, with Coons holding a 61% to 37% advantage. The poll also finds weaker emotional support for O’Donnell among her supporters than Coons has among his. The poll is the first released since long- time Republican incumbent Congressman Mike Castle announced he would not seek a write-in candidacy. Castle was defeated by O’Donnell in Delaware’s September 14 primary.
