The latest Rasmussen poll shows Casey leading Santorum by 15 percentage points, 53% to 38%. For an incumbent to be this far behind a challenger in an election year is unheard of. To get the internals you have to pay a ridiculous amount of money but The All Spin Zone has this tidbit:
Casey has a stronger base, earning greater support from Democrats (78%) and liberals (82%) than Santorum does from Republicans (67%) and conservatives (66%).
Couple this with Bush's latest numbers:
George W. Bush's overall job approval rating has returned to its lowest point in Bush's presidency as Americans again turn less optimistic about the national economy according to the latest survey from the American Research Group. Among all Americans, 36% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 58% disapprove.
The latest joke is they put Ricky in charge of lobbying reform.
