Congressman Joe Sestak’s post-primary bounce appears to over, and he now trails Republican rival Pat Toomey by seven points in the U.S. Senate contest in Pennsylvania.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Toomey with 45% support, while Sestak earns 38%. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided.

According to Rasmussen, Toomey had a 2-point lead over Sestak before the primary, and then Sestak bounced to a 4-point lead after the primary. The race probably isn't done seesawing, but for now it looks like Sestak has taken a hit over his self-made scandal.
