Skip to comments.Poll: Obama widens lead over Romney to 11 points in Pennsylvania
Posted on 09/15/2012 7:08:45 AM PDT by Baynative
A new poll finds President Obama opening up a commanding 11-point lead in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
A Philadelphia Inquirer poll released on Saturday shows Obama with 50 percent support to Romneys 39 among likely voters in the state.
Obama has expanded his 8-point lead in the same poll taken last month, where he topped Romney with 51 percent to 42.

Some of this is probably puffing to later support some massive ballot stuffing fraud in a few key states.
Consider the source. Consider the Inquirer’s ideological leanings. I believe this is what the poll found, but I don’t think the participants in any way reflect a broader reality.
This just cannot be possible. There must be something in the water - or they’ve replace it with koolaid.
I refuse to believe that there are that many stupid people anywhere in America.
Whenever I see a poll, the first question I ask is this - WHAT ARE THE INTERNALS?
Is this poll about REGISTERED or LIKELY VOTERS?
What’s the D/R/I sampling breakdown?
Maybe they just oversampled dems by 18 on this poll
I buy almost everything I need from the internet. It is really, really going to suck when I have to diligently start looking to see where, and by whom anything I buy is from a place like Penn if they end up going for Obama.
The takers have overcome the makers. God help this once great nation.
Waiting for the MSM to lead this as “Breaking News” in 3...2...1
Sampling: 432 Democrats, 12 Republicans, 9 Independents.
The Headline after the election will be how far the polls were off.
Flat-out baldfaced ignorant-and-smug-about-it lying.
they are trying to make you give up and stay home on election day and the _resident is in cahoots with the main stream media.
Any poll form this paper can never be taken seriously except as an exercise in disinformation and propaganda.
They flat-out refuse to say.
It's the newest model for lying and propaganda.
One does have to wonder upon how many that did participate in this polling are receiving government/state assistance on any level given the current climate of dependence this epic fail of Obamaeconomy has produced or is producing. =.=
If you look at the internals it is clear that Dems were oversample. Stange thing it claims that 0bama is getting only 77% of the Dem vote and Romney is getting only 71% of the GOP votes. The real stinker in this poll is the claim that 0bama is winning men 46-40 which a laugh riot. No internals were released to show the party breakdown, I suspect the DNC delegation were polled.
I am not sure what the party ID spead in PA is.
You found the internals? I looked and didn’t see them. Could you post them?
They probably conducted the poll outside the Philly social security office. You know, little card table, Obama poster on the brick, free suckers in a bowl.
Romney should have been way ahead by now. Is there any coherent strategy to Romney’s campaign? We know what Obama’s is: Appeal to special interests and rely on the press to make him look good. So far, Romney’s seems to be expecting to win by treading water. His comments on Obama’s apology were fine, but when they were attacked, no one responded in his defense except conservative writers, whom only conservatives read.
I don’t care how much money Romney has if he and his people don’t know how to use it.
FWIW, I think the game is to gin up the poll numbers prior to the election to such a degree that when Romney wins, the false narrative of “disenfranchisement” comes into play.
The dems can then say that all these people were barred from voting.
I have gotten very cynical over the years, but truly believe this is the game plan.
If this is the plan, then the dems have gone beyond any semblence of democratic process into the realm of Leftism worthy of hell.
This would cause violence and massive unrest in the cities.
I will concede that Obama probably leads in PA, but this 11 point lead poll is pure BS. I wouldn’t trust what the Phil. Inquirer says any more than I would trust the NYT. I would check the internals, but I know what I would find, so why bother. The onbly polls I am going to pay attention to from here on in are Rasmussen and Pew. The rest of them are extensions of the Obama campaign.
Wasn't 2002 one of those "unexpected" wins for the Republicans?
It’s being set up to make the claim Romney stole the election.
Pray tell,what Gop candidate would the Dem.garbage be persuaded to vote Republican?
stop wetting your pants, it is a bogus poll.
Don't get out much, eh?
even a cooked poll is hard to tilt this wide
I tell ya...the mix of minorities and goofy non Anglo Saxon Scots Irish Yankee whites has about doomed most of the North
and the parts of Dixie and the Sunbelt where they have now migrated.
minority demographics along with collaborator whites will be what killed America
and in quick fashion
we tried to warn folks here 8 or 9 years ago but were shouted down by the Bush love they neigbor gang or the “but they are all Catholic immigrants Wardaddy!” gang
well here we are folks...looks great eh?
I haven't seen or heard from Santorum lately. Is there anyone else with pull in PA? Obviously Rick needs some help.
No need for pant-wetting over a bad poll.
I agree with that assessment. When obama loses his minions will be so outraged that they will just have to act out by burning down some neighborhoods.
Obama’s philosophy: If I can’t have the USA, NO ONE will.
But, still no D/R/I breakout. THERE is the lie, RIGHT THERE.
That says it all/smirk
People LIKE Obama. Even more important, they WANT to like Obama. Simple as that. He's run a masterful campaign, the Democrats had a very effective convention, and Hussein has given folks enough reasons not to blame him for the rotten economy.
The blue states are simply coming home.
What a pile.
I have a car for sale with no tires or engine, rides smooth and runs great....
One of my FR posts I stated that Romney made one mistake. He intends to replace Bernanke, consider gold standard. Both are against what the Wall Street bankers want. You will see a gradual shift behind the scenes from Romney to Obama by the rich powers to be. Obama was backed in 2008 after Clinton promise she would investigate and go after the bankers. The radical left/Chicago went to the bankers with a devils pact. Back radical Obama and in return no investigation/prosecution of bankers and let the 5 year statue of limitations run out. The bankers made the deal and within one month the MSM ignored Clinton and money poured into Obama’s campaign coffer. FR think MSM is dominated by leftwing liberals, it is true until the top seven advertisers says otherwise. When Romney stated firing the Fed chairman, replacing it with a strong dollar one, and consider gold as real basis for money, this is worst then having to deal with Obama as POTUS. If implemented banks no longer can expand paper money and use it to camouflage their schemes. Strong dollar means deflation of current overblown asset prices to real market prices, meaning more mortgage notes held by banks are more worthless. Banks have been able to avoid free market based losses by bailout and Fed printing of money and debt. I think Romney will lose because with Wall Street bankers mandating the MSM to black out on his positive actions and harping/magnifying his gaffes, the GOP candidate has the firepower of a third party candidate. My prediction based on what I see, Romney will win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College.
The Romney/GOPe strategy is, “Vote for me, I’m not Obama!”
I also want to know the ratio of women to men...another way to hide skewing.
It doesn't help if idiots prefer an affirmative action, atheist ne'er do well!
You obviously have not spent much time in Pennsylvania.
These are the people that re-elected John Murtha AFTER he called them racists. Murtha called our Marines "cold blooded murders" including one young man that lives in his district; and still he was re-elected.
These are the people that voted for obama AFTER he said they cling to their guns and religion and are afraid of people "different" than them.
I live here, I love them, but believe me, there's a boat load of stupid people in this state.
Philadelphia Inquirer is a liberal rag. Negatives about Republican convention, front-page drooling over Dems.
What I hate is our obsession with polls, that they can use them to depress the vote.
The only thing worth looking at in regards to these polls is the choice among independents. As long as these polls are not complete fabrications, the independent numbers will reflect the real state of the electorate and trajectory of the campaigns.
Right now before our eyes, the Leftist media is maliciously attempting to cover up zero’s Mideast policy failures, so why not go all in with phony poll models and outright poll fabrications if it helps promote their statist agenda? If a criminal can rationalize one crime, why not rationalize two or three more crimes? The Leftist media’s lies are bigger and more numerous every day because they are morally bankrupt, just like the criminal.
