Zobgy Poll: Senate Within Democrats' reach

A new Zogby poll shows that in addition to the U.S. House, the Senate is in play for Democrats this fall.

Democrats enter the 2006 midterm election season with a strong playing field advantage, new polling by Zogby Interactive suggests, but Republicans have also forced two vulnerable Democratic incumbents into tight races, leaving the fall’s elections up in the air.

The online polls of Senate and gubernatorial races in 26 states find Democrats with an edge in several contests, including Pennsylvania and Ohio, where two–term Republican incumbents Rick Santorum and Mike DeWine continue to trail their Democratic challengers, while Democrats in New Jersey and Michigan are battling against surprisingly strong GOP challengers.
