The latest Quinnipiac poll shows Sen. Toomey holding a lead over former Congressman Joe Sestak and ex-Chief of Staff to Gov. Wolf Katie McGinty.
Braddock Mayor John Fetterman wasn’t included in the survey.
Toomey leads Sestak 49% to 34% and McGinty 51% to 31%. These numbers aren’t too different from the last Quinnipiac survey in August. The Senator leads both candidates across all demographics except, of course, Democrats.
Additionally, Toomey’s approval rating stands at 51% while just 27% disapprove.
The Senator’s favorability numbers are unsurprisingly close to his approval numbers, as he recorded a 49/25 favorable/unfavorable split.
Sestak, meanwhile, earned a 27/14 split while 59% haven’t heard enough about him. This is intriguing given that he was the 2010 Democratic nominee and has essentially been running for 2016 since the day the first campaign ended.
McGinty got a 16/11 split with a massive 74% saying they don’t know enough about her.
This survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University using live interviewers calling land lines and cell phones from September 25th to October 5th. They contacted 1,049 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
