Second, Delweare (D)
Public Policy Polling survey in Delaware finds Rep. Mike Castle (R) leading Beau Biden (D) in a possible U.S. Senate race, 45% to 39%.

Key finding: “Two major trends have shown up in both polls to give Castle the early advantage. The first is an overwhelming 52-23 lead with independents. That mirrors a national trend of strong Republican performance with that group, although Castle’s edge is particularly large. The second is that he wins over far more Democrats than Biden does Republicans
