Keystone poll bodes ill for GOP

Democrat Bob Casey has opened up a 15-point lead over Republican U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum -- more than double the lead the challenger held in September -- according to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review/WTAE-TV Keystone poll released today.

Casey leads Santorum 53 percent to 38 percent, with 9 percent undecided, according to the telephone poll of 626 registered voters conducted over five days ending Sunday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.

A Keystone poll conducted in late September showed Casey, the state treasurer from Scranton, with a 7-point lead over Santorum, of Penn Hills, the third-ranking Republican in the Senate.

"(Santorum) is falling further behind as voters seem to be rejecting his shift in course toward focus almost exclusively on the war on terror," said Keystone Poll director G. Terry Madonna, a political science professor at Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster County.

The closer to Nov. 7th it gets, the more people are rejecting Republican nonsense.
