Poll Reveals Specter's Troubles Not Over Yet

A new poll released this morning by Quinnipiac shows Arlen Specter leading potential Republican challenger, Tom Ridge, by just three points (46 - 43). While the poll finds that Specter would easily defeat Pat Toomey (53 - 33), it also reveals troubling numbers with regard to Pennsylvania Independents.
Independent voters, who back Sen. Specter over Toomey 45 – 36 percent, switch to Ridge 47 – 37 percent if he becomes a candidate. The former Republican Governor also gets 14 percent of the Democratic vote, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.
