Some new-ish Casey/Santorum poll numbers

From the Trib (of all places):
Democratic state Treasurer Bob Casey Jr. has increased his lead over Republican U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum in his likely 2006 showdown for Santorum's seat, according to a new Pittsburgh Tribune-Review/WTAE-Channel 4 Keystone poll.
And some data:
In the Senate race, the telephone survey of 518 registered voters showed Casey beating Santorum, of Penn Hills, by a 50 percent to 37 percent in a hypothetical election, with 13 percent undecided. The margin of error was plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
And here's something else to ponder. The Hill is reporting that:
Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) is losing ground to his Democratic challenger, state Treasurer Bob Casey, a GOP poll to be released today shows.

The Strategic Vision survey, conducted Saturday through Monday, gives Casey a 14-point lead over the second-term senator, with the Democrat at 52 percent and the Republican at 38 percent. Seven percent of the 1,200 likely voters interviewed were undecided.
Double digit leads both places.

Something to ponder.

I'd prefer a poll that pitted Santorum against "other". I'm pretty sure I would see the same results...

A poll against "other" almost always does better than a poll of a specific name. What's important is that Casey is the only candidate with these kind of numbers against Santorum (or as I call him, Guy Smiley)

Casey is at least in favor of women being able to practice contraception. Sanitarium seems only men should have this option. How can anyone red blooded male support his opinion.
