Down 2 point? And how would we know this if the polls haven’t closed?

Geeze...They are concerned about the T of the state. The southern part of the T has concerned me for weeks. When traveling through it, just so many damn Obama signs compared to Kerry four years ago.

The two big urban areas in PA are in the SE (Philadelphia) and SW (Pittsburgh) corners of the state. The more conservative /rural parts of the state are south central and across the north of the state, often referred to as, “the T”.

The “T” is center and across the top of PA, which is Red. Pittsburgh and Philly in the SE and SW of the state are traditionally Blue.

A lot of these states are to close to call at this point. This bodes well for McCain. It looks like the Republicans are turning out. Does not appear to be a Obama blowout by any means as the msm has said.

If the Dems also sent this out lets hope they are right and they are the ones 2 points down!

Watch out for cheating in Philadelphia. Bet their returns are the last ones in.

It’s the huge area between Philly & Pittsburgh - traditionally very red.

Yep, that’s what concerns all of us. Philly will be last and Fast Eddie will insure Obama pulls out a “squeaker”.

Wow. PA has a LOT of electoral votes.

Even if you’re not from PA, call your friends who might live there, and make sure they VOTE!

It was all media hype in the first place.

They simply lied and knew it. It always was much closer than they said it was.

They did help motivate every available Pubbie out there this time though. Let’s hope this backfires on them like a Solar Fare. They have not only given up what little credibility they had left, they should be about bankrupt soon after this election.

You know what I mean. There is just a lot of Hype floating out there in Breaking, just slowing the sight down. Lets wait for the meat and we will deal with that whatever it is.

That FoxNews map has been flaky. They have states popping up as decided, with numbers...then they disappear.

"The southern part of the T has concerned me for weeks."

I grew up in Western PA (Indiana County) and went to Gettysburg College in the late 80's and early 90's, so I know the area well...even back then the Gettysburg area was increasingly becoming a D.C. suburb. The Shady Grove, MD metro stop made the commute a lot easier for denizens of DC to move as far away as southern PA.

I hope that the apparent fraud and poll shenanigans in Philly aren’t being duplicated across the state. If Obamao ekes out a slim victory in PA, there will be the stink of fraud and thuggery to deal with.

Here's a map from 2004... (of course, it's more blue now, especially near Philly)

Even though this is MSNBC, the map works better.

LOL.. so much for the internal polling crap tossed out in the last week and the call in to the radio show that had McCain way up in PA. NJ and even Michigan in their internal polls

The T is the areas (many are rural) of PA not in the urban areas of Pittsburgh (SW corner) or Philly (SE corner). I’m in the T, and I know it was record numbers turning out today.
