Joe Sestak continues to close in on Arlen Specter and in some polls he has managed to build a slight lead over Specter going into the final weekend of campaigning before primary election day in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Folks in Pennsylvania are calling this race too close to call and for good reason. Political analysts are watching this race closely as it will establish a baseline of what to expect at the mid term elections in 2010.
A few month ago, political pundits were saying that the election would be a referendum against Democrats. But now it appears that it is not a referendum on political parties,but rather one on incumbents. There is a strong anti-incumbent sentiment that will play a big part in who gets elected in the mid term elections.
Arlen Specter is 80 years old and conventional wisdom says… It’s time for Specter to go home.
