Rasmussen Poll: Christine O'Donnell beats Chris Coons

In a July 12-14th Rasmussen Poll of 500 Delaware voters, Christine O'Donnell beats Democrat Chris Coons 41% to 39%.  This is extremely positive and cements Christine's viability to win both the September 14th primary against Mike Castle and the general election on November 2 against Chris Coons.

The sentiment of Delaware voters is consistent with that that propelled conservative candidates ahead of liberals in election after election this past year.  Some interesting trends emerging in Delaware:

  • 51% (41% Strongly favor, 10% Somewhat favor) repealing the health care bill
  • 58% favor Delaware enacting similiar immigration reform as was passed in the state of Arizona
  • 56% disagree with the Department of Justic suing Arizona over the passage of their immigration bill
  • 58% agree that immigration refrorm should keep out national security threats, criminals, and those who come here to live off our welfare system.
  • 53% agree that off-shore oil drilling should be allowed.
  • 43% agree (vs 38% disagree) that deepwater oil drilling should be allowed
  • 56% believe that the 2009 Stimulus Bill has either hurt the economy or had zero impact on the economy.
  • 89% rate the U.S. economy either poor or fair.
  • 43% believe economic conditions in the U.S. are getting worse, and 21% staying the same
  • 66% believe that the U.S. is in a recession
Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence

Based on these trends, the sentiment of the Delaware voter favors a conservative over a liberal for the 2010 election.  That trend favors Christine O'Donnell to take the U.S. Senate seat (Delaware).
