Pt only Pennsylvania Senate: Toomey (R), Sestak (D) Locked in A Tight Race

Republican Pat Toomey still holds a small lead over Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak in the closing days of Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race.

This race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings

A week ago, Toomey, a conservative activist who previously served in Congress, held a similar 48% to 44% edge over Sestak. The recent tightening of the race comes from an increase in support for Sestak, while Toomey’s support remains fairly steady. Sestak’s support is now at its highest level since mid-May, following a brief bounce after his Democratic Primary win over incumbent Senator Arlen Specter.

At the same time, the latest results mark the first time Toomey has reached 50% since polling of the race began in February. Prior to today’s release, Toomey has earned 42% to 49% support since February, while Sestak has picked up 36% to 46% of the vote.

All the Anonymous BS That's Fit to Print: Self-Serving Newspapers Ditch Their Own Ethics Rules By Ted Rall

The most disturbing aspect of The New York Times op-ed by an anonymous "senior official in the Trump Administration" isn't its content.

The content isn't significant enough to make an impression.

Americans Remember 9/11, or Do They?

Today marks the 17th anniversary of the radical Islamic terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 that killed 3,000 Americans and injured another 6,000. Americans are more convinced these days that their sacrifice has not been forgotten, although many still wonder.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of American Adults still believe that many Americans have forgotten the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But that’s down from 41% in surveys over the past four years and a high of 47% who felt that way in 2012. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
