POLL: PRESIDENTIAL RACE TIGHT IN PENNSYLVANIA
WorldNetDaily ^ | 09/29/2012

Posted on 09/29/2012 7:42:17 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Two percentage points separate President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in a state poll conducted for the Tribune-Review, even though the campaigns largely are ignoring Pennsylvania and concentrating on other battlegrounds.

Obama polled 47 percent to Romney’s 45 percent among likely Pennsylvania voters, with 6 percent of voters undecided and 44 days until Election Day, according to the survey by Susquehanna Polling & Research. The survey of 800 voters, conducted Sept. 18-20, has a margin of error of 3.46 percentage points.

The poll showed most voters are disappointed with the country’s direction, evenly split on whether Obama deserves another term and hesitant to back Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts. Fifty-one percent of the state’s voters approve of Obama’s job performance.

We can only pray and exhort- the urbans are not motivated to get out and the working class, suburban, coal districts hammer the precincts.

Frack you Obama!

Fifty-one percent of the state's voters obviously are ignorant to reality! What performance???? The guy is a narcissistic loser and has accomplished nearly nothing positive!

I hear that the Dem Machine out in Allegheny County took a beating. Philly is Philly, but in the suburbs enthusiasm is definitely dropped. I don’t see many yard signs for either candidate.

2008 signs were everywhere, even some people I knew that went Bush for 2004 had Obama signs. I definitely think things are a lot better this time around.

BS. Polls are NOT “tightening”. They just need to start being more honest. In the PA suburbs of Philly, I see lots of R signs, no D signs, even though my neighborhood went D in 2008.

Yup!...happens every time....The 2010 Republican sweep was a good example... polls weren’t even close to predicting the sweep till a few days before the election...and then they called most dead heats... (someone at FR had a chart of polls going back several years....When a (D) won it was always by less then predicted.....When a (R) won it was always by more then predicted....usually within the margin of error

From everything I hear here in SWPA, the distrust and dislike for obama is palpable. Even the union guys around here can’t stand him.
WE CAN DO THIS!!!

I'm in upstate NY and I don't mean to hijack the thread but I'm seeing no — maybe one or two old ones— Obama bumper stickers. Romney's not going to win NY but I get complemented on my Romney sticker all of the time. By this time last election there were Obama yard signs and bumper stickers all over the place.

RE: plus Catholic vote

I’m just curious... what makes people think that Catholics are overwhelmingly for Romney this time?

President Obama 32 votes 17.39%
Mitt Romney 129 votes 70.11%
Other 23 votes 12.50%

I was just over at Catholic Answers forum and they had their own poll. The above are the results. Now, there are non-Catholics on the forum too, but I’m assuming that most of those who cast their vote are Catholic.

I’m in the Philly suburbs. In 2008 we saw a lot of Obama lawn signs. Now, not one. I see republican signs, though.

Catholic Answers members are mostly DEVOUT CATHOLICS.

While I wish that every Catholic were devout, I know of too many who think like Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and Joe Biden.

The question we have to answer is this -— DO THE DEVOUT CATHOLICS OUTNUMBER AND ARE THEY MORE ENTHUSIASTIC TO VOTE THEN THE NON-DEVOUT ONES?
