Good news for former Republican Rep. Pat Toomey in his Pennsylvania Senate campaign against Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak. A new Quinnipiac poll shows Toomey leading 50 to 43 percent in a survey of voters taken Sept. 15-19 with a 3.8 percentage-point margin of error, Roll Call reports.

And Toomey should benefit from President Obama’s slumping approval ratings. A hefty 56 percent of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of Obama’s job performance, and 52 percent want a senator who opposes his policies.

To be sure, the race is by no means over.

“Pat Toomey is in a good place, ahead by seven points with six weeks to go. But Joe Sestak has proven himself a tough competitor so it’s too early to order the champagne,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a statement.
