New poll: Coons' Senate lead grows
Thursday, October 28th, 2010
Democrat Chris Coons' lead in Delaware's U.S. Senate race is widening, according to a new poll.
The survey released Thursday morning by Fairleigh Dickinson University-PublicMind shows Coons with a 21-point advantage over Republican Christine O'Donnell. According to the poll, 57 percent of likely voters say they will vote for Coons compared to just 36 percent for O'Donnell.
O'Donnell trailed by 17 points in a similar Fairleigh Dickinson poll released earlier this month.
