Via Allahpundit, a new Fox News poll of 1,000 likely voters, conducted September 18, shows Christine O'Donnell trailing Chris Coons 39 percent to 54 percent in the Delaware Senate race. Voters express support for smaller government, and they also want to repeal Obamacare--50 percent to 43 percent--a position Mike Castle held but did not highlight in the GOP primary.

The real problem for O'Donnell is that 60 percent of Delaware voters do not believe that she is qualified to be a senator:

4* Regardless of how you plan to vote, do you think Chris Coons is qualified to be a U.S. Senator?
 
59% Yes
27% No
14% Not sure
 
5* Regardless of how you plan to vote, do you think Christine O’Donnell is qualified to be a U.S. Senator?
 
33% Yes
60% No
 8% Not sure

Meanwhile, in Nevada, Sharron Angle is leading Harry Reid 45 percent to 44 percent according to a Fox poll.
