Pennsylvania GOP senate candidates Pat Toomey and Tom Corbett are both enjoying comfortable leads over their opponents for US Senate and Governor, respectively.
That's the word from a new Franklin & Marshall poll that shows Toomey with a seven point lead among likely voters and Corbett with a 15 point lead.
In the same poll almost two-thirds of Pennsylvanians say the state is headed in the wrong direction. And, get this: Two in three voters disapprove of the jobs President Obama and Gov. Ed Rendell are doing.
Those figures do not bode well for the Democrats.
BTW: A daily tracking poll released Monday by Muhlenberg College shows results similar to the Franklin & Marshall Poll, with Toomey up 8 percentage points and Corbett ahead by 11.
To be sure, Toomey and Corbett are taking nothing for granted. It's full speed ahead at both of their campaigns with plenty of events scheduled between now and election day.
