The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Castle earning 48% of the vote, while Coons gets 37% support. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) remain undecided. [...]
Coons leads conservative activist Christine O’Donnell, who is challenging Castle for the GOP Senate nomination in a primary next Tuesday, by a 47% to 36% margin. Given that matchup, eight percent (8%) prefer another candidate, while nine percent (9%) are undecided.
O'Donnell's campaign doesn't put too much stock in Rasmussen polls. Her campaign manager Matt Moran told me last week that Rasmussen had conducted "more of a push poll."
"Scott Rasmussen has to pay his bills," says Moran. "We understand that the RNC and NRSC have long tentacles."
