Poll: Romney Up 16% With Pennsylvania Independents
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 31, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

According to a new poll from Franklin and Marshall, Mitt Romney is just four percentage points behind President Barack Obama … in Pennsylvania. In September, that gap was a full nine points. “Momentum is with Romney,” says poll director Terry Madonna. Madonna thinks that Romney may run out of time to make up that deficit. But the internals of the poll are shocking for Obama. Romney is ahead of Obama in terms of who the public believes can best fix the economy. Obama’s personal favorability is down from 2008; they’re actually at George W. Bush numbers circa 2004. And voter interest is down from 73% in 2008 to 67% today...

PA is OH insurance but I can’t get my head around PA going red while OH stays blue, unless Obama has cooked the voting there.

Rasmussen just on Hannity: he stated that Romney up in FL, CO, VA (close), NH (close) and OH (close), essentially tied in IA and WI, and both winnable. But he really poo-poo’ed the idea of Romney winning PA, MI or MN. (He didn’t mention NC).

Go Penn Go! Go Red for once and support a true American. Mitt’s supporting Coal (vs Obama’s war on coal) should be enough to make Penn go Red....So Go make it happen!!!!! Go Mitt!

Color North Carolina RED! Obama is not even running ads here any more...Mitt will win NC by at least 5 points...probably closer to 7. Obama has already written off NC, as he has much bigger trouble in OH, etc. If the Republicans turn out as expected, even some of the Obama ‘safe’ states will be called early. Independents are turning heavy towards Mitt in all the swing states...Go Mitt!

Honestly, if Obama loses by 16% among Independents, how is it even mathematically possible to win in PA?

And yes, I live outside Philadelphia and know all about voter fraud. If the margins are THAT big (especially in the collar counties), then that won’t cut it.

+++++++++++++
I was wondering the same thing. What we need is for some PA Freeper to give us a realistic D/R/I. If its D+5 or less we have a shot.

The Democrats have spent hundreds of millions of dollars poisoning the well against Romney in Ohio. They haven’t spent a dime in Pennsylvania, because they didn’t think they’d need to.

your instincts are correct. If PA goes red so does OH, MI, MN, FL, N.C., VA, and CO. If all this happens in a big way guess what?

West coast libs stay home and CA and OR both have a chance. The eastern result will depress the western libs and energize the western conservatives.
