Posted on 10/22/2012 10:14:44 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
Not only does the Rasmussen Daily Tracking poll show Romney up 2 points today; not only does the Rasmussen Swing State poll show Romney up 49-46 today (included are 11 states which Obama won 53-46 in 2008); not only is Romney up by 50-37 among swing state independents; NOW Susquehanna Polling and Research (SPR) shows Mitt Romney up 49-45 in the normally deep blue state of Pennsylvania.

SPR is an automated poll of 1,376 likely voters, taken between October 11-13. Although its results do not include the 2nd presidential debate, Gallup incorporates over 50% of the post-debate days in its 7 day rolling average poll and Rasmussen includes only days since the debate. Yet neither of these polls show any sort of debate performance bounce for Barack Obama even though...

I will take it. No matter what I like the trend.
I won’t be surprised if Romney takes Pennsylvania, if not on the coal issue alone.
I’m just poll-weary at this point. I’m anxiously awaiting actual results. It’s been a long two years.
this poll has been making the circuit several days now...
Almost two weeks left folks. Get out and vote. Tell your friends to vote Romney. Tell your mama to get out and vote Romney.
After that we have the arduous process of keeping Romney conservative.
OK, I will channel both Intapundit and Iowahawk at once. “Don’t get cocky because all political polls are garbage.”
WOW. If Romney takes PA, it’s going to be a blowuout.
I can hope this isn’t a repeat of McGovern’s 49-1 ass whupping.
It’s CLEAR that 0bama’s mission is to TERMINATE COAL PRODUCTION. How could ANY coal-producing state vote for 0bama? That’s SUICIDAL.. Ain’t gonna happen!
Hell, My dog voted for Romney. Shows that she has more brains than the typical liberal.
The problem with this poll is that it’s D+6. In active registrations, the D/R/I in The Keystone State is 50/38/12. That means that even factoring in an enthusiasm gap, you’ve got to expect D+9 or D+10 here. Doing that says that PA is about 50-50. That is very bad news for 0 but not as bad as the Susquehanna poll suggests.
In 2008 the suburban Philly counties turned deep, deep blue (as opposed to neutral or even pale pink). If that model reasserts itself Romney may indeed have his shot here.
Pittsburgh abd Philly versus the rest of the state. What I hope is that Obama’s base are not as enthusiastic this time around.
