Poll shows tight contest in Pa.'s Senate race

Senate RaceHARRISBURG, Pa. – A second new poll in as many days in Pennsylvania's race for U.S. Senate shows Democrat Joe Sestak (SEHS'-tak) has apparently closed the gap behind Republican Pat Toomey(TOO'-mee).

The Quinnipiac (KWIN'-uh-PEE-ack) University poll released Thursday shows Toomey supported by 48 percent of likely voters to Sestak's 46 percent. The numbers include people who say they still might change their mind.

Just 5 percent remained undecided two weeks before the election.

A poll released Wednesday by Muhlenberg College showed the candidates about even. They are vying to replace Sen. Arlen Specter, whom Sestak beat in the May primary.

The telephone poll of 1,046 Pennsylvanians deemed likely to vote was conducted during the five days ending Sunday. The sampling error margin is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
