Democrats Gaining In Senate Races
Democrats are breaking away at the state level.
In Virginia, after a year-long period of stability, Democrat Tim Kaine has finally begun to break away from Republican George Allen. In the most recent Rasmussen poll, he leads 52 percent to Allen’s 47 percent, which matches his overall favorability with Virginia voters.
Likewise, in Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren has built a solid lead over Scott Brown, in a race that was tied for most of the year…
The polling in states such as Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida is less recent, but it shows a similar trend — Tammy Baldwin has built a 5-point lead over former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, Sherrod Brown has maintained his advantage over Josh Mandel in Ohio, and Bill Nelson is still leading Connie Mack in Florida. And, thanks to the huge missteps of Todd Akin, the unpopular Claire McCaskill has found a path to reelection.
