The Daily News reports that polling shows Republican Pat Toomey has a 14-point lead over "Democrat" Arlen Specter in the race for Specter's Senate seat: "Poll director G. Terry Madonna said that the results reflect a growing national Republican resurgence mixed with a lack of Democratic enthusiasm as the two parties battle over issues like health care and the economy. "I can't deny it's all very encouraging," Toomey said. "But I'm also very aware of the fact that the election is nine months away. A lot can happen. So I'm going to run like I'm 20 points behind." Specter, who narrowly beat Toomey in the 2004 Republican primary, declined to comment on the poll yesterday. U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, who is leaving his Delaware County congressional seat to challenge Specter in the primary, also came up a loser against Toomey in the poll. Toomey led Sestak among registered voters by 28-16 percent with 51 percent undecided."
