Polls Show Christine O'Donnell Way Behind Coons

By

Though she has received an inordinate amount of national attention over the past month, Christine O’Donnell still trails Democrat opponent Chris Coons by a huge margin. A new University of Delaware poll has Coons 19 points ahead of O’Donnell; and a different Fairleigh-Dickinson University survey has Coons up by 17 points. Furthermore, O’Donnell’s supporters in Delaware aren’t even particularly passionate about their candidate: only a third of her supporters said they would be “very disappointed” if she lost the race, compared to two-thirds of Coons’ supporters who said the same about their candidate. Then again, no one thought O'Donnell had a chance against Mike Castle a month before their primary. . . [MSNBC]
