Toomey gets slight bump from work on gun bill

Interesting: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/04/26/toomey-gets-slight-bump-from-work-on-gun-bill/

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) may have failed in his attempt to pass compromise background check legislation for gun purchases, but he appears have helped his political standing — albeit slightly.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Toomey’s approval in his state rising to a new high of 48 percent, while 30 percent of Pennsylvanians disapprove of him. That’s better than his 43/32 split from just a month ago.

Democrats pointed out with glee this week that Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R-N.H.) approval rating suffered after her ‘no’ vote on the gun legislation, with her disapproval rising 11 points and her approval dropping four points in a new poll from Democratic automated pollster Public Policy Polling.

1. Meh. Quinnipiac. Not the best pollster. OTOH, PPP, the one that did polling for Ayotte

was the ONLY pollsters that got the stats correct for the 2012 elections. Quinnipiac was as wrong as Gallup and Rasmussen, so I wouldn't put too much stock in their polling.
