Casey 50
Smith 39

Quote
Casey has a 44-36 advantage with independents and he continues to enjoy greater than normal crossover support for a Democrat, taking 17% of the GOP vote. He's winning white voters 47-43 and is at 50% with both women (50-35) and men (50-43).

This actually looks more fitting. At the same time Casey should be leading by 15.

"Casey folks" are a thing? Tongue Wink

I mean, these numbers, of the two new polls, really do seem more likely, though I think it may fall between these numbers and Muhlenburg's. If Casey does still have anywhere near a 17% grab of the GOP vote, I'm not convinced Tom Smith can really make the jump into being truly competitive. There's still time, though, for Casey to just keep sitting around until he wakes up in November and has no job (which will just start the race for a new job, anyway, I suppose).

Ironically, Casey losing might actually be a blessing: it would give him the perfect excuse to run for Governor in 2014. Of course, many within the party would be opposed after he lost what was seen as a safe Senate seat. Imagine if his loss ended up costing the Dems the Senate! Cheesy  And the usual suspects (more liberal Dems) would be opposed to him regardless of his 2012 performance.

I may go to PA in 2014 to work for whoever runs against Corbett (my primary choice is Sestak but we will see) If Casey runs and wins the nomination after losing such a race though I will not go.

Can someone please explain to me why so many liberals seem to dislike Casey?

Because of the wing of the party he seems to embody, thanks to the reputation of his father (a man liberals truly despised).

Casey Sr. was a great man. I find it the height of amusement that the closest Roe v. Wade has ever come to being overturned was when a Democratic governor challenged it in court, only to be rebuffed by the last minute treason of Republican Anthony Kennedy. That's the political world we should be living in, but I fear it's too far gone now.

Casey Jr. is a pale vestige of his father, but he's about the best the Democrats have, ideologically.
