Skip to comments.Pennsylvania, Michigan in Play for Romney
Posted on 10/09/2012 10:07:13 PM PDT by kingattax
Two post-debate polls show Mitt Romney closing the gap in Michigan. A poll conducted by WeAskAmerica from September 25th-September 27th showed President Obama leading Romney by 12 points.
One week later, after the first debate, two polls show Romney within three points of the President in Michigan.
Michigan is typically a Democratic stronghold because of its large concentration of union workers and the ethnic diversity of large cities like Detroit.
Michigan also happens to be the birthplace of Governor Romney. Whether or not that will have an impact of voters is yet to be determined.
In Pennsylvania, where again the President was leading by 12 points just a month ago, Mitt Romney has reduced his deficit to only two points in a recent poll by Susquehanna University, a gap that is comfortably within the margin of error.
If the numbers keep trending in this direction, Barack Obama is in for a huge shock on November 6th.
The vice-presidential debate will have a small impact on the race, but not as much as the media would like you to believe. At the end of the day people vote for the top of the ticket.
This race is all about undecided voters and moderate Democrats. No Republican is going to vote for Barack Obama, but I believe that there are some Democrats who can be persuaded to jump ship away from the dark side.
States like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and New Hampshire are more in play than they were just a month ago.
Dont forget Connecticut, a state where Obama won by 23 in 2008, is ONLY up 6 now..if this is a trend, in November this election will be brought to Obama by the letter L..for LOSER
Poll ping sorta.
Ah gots yo telgens bref rite heah!
Just went to the PA poll that has Romney within 2 points. Internals:
Little tidbit from OH: in 08, yard signs were advantage Obama. This time, not only does Romney already have a big advantage, but 1) I see signs in front of houses that have never had signs before; 2) I have been on a wait list for a sign and went to Romney southern HQ-—they got 1000 last week and they were immediately gone, and had a legal pad with about 10 pp of names STILL WAITING. Obama is in for a BIG loss.
“Ethnic diversity of Detroit”
That sounds like a punch line to a joke. :-)
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
