Prior to the most recent slugfest to represent the State of Delaware in the US Senate, the Bearded Marxist Chris Coons held an average of 18 to 20 point margin over his opponent Christine O’Donnel. Rasmussen is reporting that this lead has shrunk to 11 points. Is trouble brewing in the first state? Is that why Obama and Biden are swooping in for a visit?
