More wind for Casey's sails

New polling results show Bob Casey with higher numbers than Rick Santorum in a theoretical match-up for Senate. Of course, the former just won a statewide election and the latter has been a bit quieter than usual the last few weeks, but still, it's hard to ignore.
"Casey edges Santorum in a head-to-head matchup, and both candidates have nearly equal favorable ratings, while Santorum has a much higher unfavorable rating. As an outspoken conservative, Santorum has placed himself at the right end of the political spectrum, with even 12 percent of Republicans saying he is too conservative," Richards added.
Other Democratic candidates (Hoeffel, Hafer) show less impressively, but this is as much an indicator of current name recognition as it is of any real preference among those polled.

I found this recent addition on a conservative blogger site. I think it's much more gas than solid, however, it's not a good thing for Santorum:

As of right now, I will not be able to cast a vote for Rick Santorum in good conscience. Santorum has shown me that he is perfectly willing to give up his principles for what is in his own best interest. The most glaring and recent example of this was his support for liberal Arlen Specter over the conservative Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Republican primary election for Senate.

This poll is real trouble for Santorum. He barely breaks fifty percent against TJ Rooney! Nobody knows TJ Rooney while Santorum is a two-term Senator!
