If Delaware seemed like good news to Dems, Wisconsin is killing them now 

I bet John Cornyn is suddenly feeling a lot better with this news from from Wisconsin:

After a decisive win in Tuesday’s Republican Primary, businessman Ron Johnson now holds a seven-point lead over incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Johnson picking up 51% support, while Feingold earns the vote from 44%. One percent (1%) of voters prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) remain undecided.

The significance here goes beyond this state. This slippage in one of the “toss-up” races amounts to a five-alarm fire calling for triage by the DSCC. If they want to save their majority, they are going to have to abandon other candidates. Among the weakest links: Lee Fisher in Ohio (suddenly 20 points behind), whomever they would have backed in Florida (Charlie Crist or Kendrick Meek), Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania, and Rep. Paul Hodes, D, who is running for Senate in New Hampshire.
