smithtomcampaign.jpgThe Morning Call wallows in the numbers so we don’t have to – taking a look at its joint poll with Muhlenberg College. Of note: the gap in the U.S. Senate race continues to shrink in Republican candidate Tom Smith’s favor.

As reported this week, polls are showing the race tightening and it’s suddenly getting some national attention. Just 10 days ago, the Morning Call/Muhlenberg poll showed [Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen.] Casey up by 12 points over Smith, 45 percent to 33 percent.

Now Smith trails Casey by just 8 points, 44 percent to 36 percent.
