Pat Toomey has the lead on all his potential Democratic challengers, according to the latest PPP poll.
His advantages, however, are still in the single digits and there are several months and plenty of undecided voters left.
The 2010 Democratic nominee performs the best against the Senator. Toomey is ahead of Sestak 41% to 38% with 21% not sure.
Toomey’s lead expands to seven points, 43% to 36%, against ex-Chief of Staff to Governor Wolf Katie McGinty. Once again, 21% would be undecided in such a contest.
Finally, Toomey also has a seven-point advantage over Braddock Mayor John Fetterman, 41% to 34%. 24% were not sure.
The drawbacks for the Senator are that he is below the 50% threshold and his opponents lead him among moderates and independents. Still, his party is united behind him and a potentially bruising six-month Democratic primary awaits.
