The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Obama with 51% of the vote to Romney’s 39%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) remain undecided.

PA is not in play this election and never has been, the title is misleading, it’s is not a swing state this time around.

I agree, and I never held out hope for PA. But come on-— Romney running 6 points behind McCain when he is outperforming McCain nationally??

Perhaps Mitt needs to stop his trip to California today. He was just there a week and a half ago. I know its about $$$ but I really don’t expect to see Obama in Texas anytime soon.

The only thing you have to remember is that things look really bad for Obama right now, so his supporters have launched a massive campaign on the media, the internet and the streets.

Their purpose: to discourage Romney voters from coming to the polls.

So Obama tells people in PA that they cling to their guns and religion and this state will vote for him anyway..Perhaps its the same voters who were on Howard Stern’s video who think that McCain is still running..God help this country

Well, I hope Romney is non-existant in PA. It's a losing state for the GOP. They keep proving themselves unable to overcome 1) their urban centers and 2) their knee-jerk cultural Democrat roots.

His money will be much better spent in OH, CO, FL, and most especially VA.

That's exactly right -- just like when now-deceased traitor John Murtha described his constiuents as racist, redneck yahoos. Well, guess who re-elected Murtha.... AND built a statue to commemorate him???

There’s only so much money to go around during a campaign. That means someone has to be counted out. For R/R, it should be PA.

As hard as it is to accept, we have to believe that there are truths that are hard to swallow.. This has some possible answers for these results, and that is that it’s an outer, a poll that isn’t entirely accurate because of luck of the draw, or the news in that region was especially negative, or it’s just TRUE....

The facts are such that the Rommney Camp has withdrawn at least for now, because money and effort is better spent in a more productive state.. KEEP THE FAITH, IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO US TO GET IT DONE IN NOVEMBER!

Bush and last GOP Congress Federal Deficit 2006 $160 billion

Obama and last Dem Congress Federal Defect 2010 $1.6 trillion

Even the most brain dead Obama supporter should be able to do that much math

FReepers are in denial as to just how piss-poor a campaign Romney’s weak-kneed losers are running. Ann Romney’s near-tears performances on TV last week may reflect scary internal polls we aren’t privy to. Romney has just a few mote weeks to drop these stupid ads about the meaningless “record debt” that NO ONE cares about, and ATTACK Obama the way he attacked Gingrich - for the KILL.

As I recall, the Romney camp announced massive ad buys in several states about 10 days ago, coming out of the convention. PA was not among them. It seems they saw some writing on the wall, and a Rasmussen poll confirms it.

The media's coverage and skew of the "47 percent" video. It has been a total disgrace, but has landed perhaps a fatal body blow on Mittens.

I just read on Drudge that Messina, Obama’s pollster said “don't worry about the national polls they are going to tighten, but we are ahead and have the momentum in the states that count”! Does this sound like Obama has a problem? LOL

Mitt is doing the right thing by NOT spending money here. In the last few elections, we spent way too much money there only to lose.

It’s not a swing state. We are better off using all of that money in VA and Ohio. We get those two and it’s game over.

Pennsylvania is a long shot state for repubs in national elections. We can’t beat the ongoing fraud either. Philly has the worst voting fraud in America.

If true (unlikely), then Pennsylvanians esp coal miners deserve to suffer in servitude to the fedgov - and then be tossed to the side when the money runs out. Enjoy your poverty and starvation, scum.

The coal industry is taking a huge hit in PA due to zero’s EPA policies and the new voter ID will likely be upheld. Could have major implications.

don’t believe the internal polling theory at all...the criminal liberal media has done everything possible to make us believe the election is over, even quoting sources in the GOP on how bad they think Romney is running his campaign (which i agree to an extent)...if there was a hint of bad internals from the Romney camp it would be leaked out and front page news...

PA has become like Illinois. Dems can do whatever they want, and the state will happily stay on the Dem plantation. The delusion is so powerful.
