Democrat Chris Coons leads Republican Christine O’Donnell by 19 points in the Delaware Ssenate race, according to a Monmouth University poll released this afternoon. A majority of likely voters in the Diamond State, moreover, feel that O’Donnell is not qualified to serve in the U.S. Senate, according to the poll.
Fifty-seven percent of likely voters say they will vote for Coons compared to 38% who support O’Donnell, according to the poll. “While the race is basically tied in the southern part of the state (i.e. Kent and Sussex counties) – 46% for Coons to 47% for O’Donnell, the Democrat holds an overwhelming 63% to 33% advantage in New Castle County.”
