Sadly, Pennsylvania’s vote is dictated by democrat controlled Philadelphia. Here in the west, a few Obama signs have popped up, but I have seen a TON Of “stop the war on coal, fire Obama” signs and a TON of Romney/Ryan signs. During a weekend trip to the central part of the state, the same thing, the coal miner won’t be fooled again. I think the vote will be closer this year, and everyone in the central part of the state needs to vote!!!! That didn’t happen in 2008. However, I can’t get too excited or too optomistic about an outcome different than 2008, just a closer contest.

Romney will win the majority of the votes outside of Philly and Pburgh.

The pubbies were going to change the electoral college distribution along the lines of Nebraska, according to congressional district with the additional two votes going to the overall gross vote winner.

They had the votes but not the balls {didn't want to be called racists}.

My state senator, Kim Ward, was pushing it but Gleason, the pubbie state chairman, fought against it.

He should be booted.

If they passed that distribution model, Romney would have won at least 15 electoral college votes with the other 6 probably going to obummer.

PA is always a tease for republicans but forcing Obama to spend more time and resources there is a win.

4 of last 5polls before this one had it 2-3. I think PA Is really, really close and could POSSIBLY go our way with another bad Zero debate.

Given the state of the economy and the utter mismanagement by Obama how can Romney be losing here?

It’s not part of the rust belt for nothing. Is there nothing that will loosen the screw?

Well, Pennsylvania, do you mean it this time, or are you just giving us yet another Lucy-yanking-the-football moment?

Let’s not get crazy over Pa. Remember this is the State Obama used as ‘bible reading and gun clutching’ AND THEY STILL VOTED FOR HIM. Too many liberals..Pa. can stuff it!

Internals, internals and trends.

Everyone needs to look at the internals and weighting. The internals show a negative trend for the Democrats and especially against Casey. Here are the weigthings;

PARTY IDENTIFICATION
Republican 31% 508
Democrat 39 573
Independent 26 393
Other/DK/NA 4 45

Actual Voter Registration - current
Republican 37%
Democrat 50
NPA 13

Now consider all those coal miners and others who are democrats who are against this regime in addition to the very lopsided numbers going against Obama. One other tidbit was that the percentage of registered voters voting in 2004 was more than 2008.

Quinnipiac doesn’t weight its poll results.

Thus, if they make their calls during the day, they will heavily sample democrats.

They say they are sampling cell phones. Who owns cell phones with listed numbers? Obamaphone owners.

And Quinnipiac was not in the top 25 most accurate polling firms for the 2008 election.

Quinnipiac polls are next-to-meaningless. Having said that, other more reliable polls have PA quite close.

The “bitter clingers” voted for Hildebeast in the primary, not Obama. No, we did’t go for McLame...no surprise. This is the year we go for Romney.

Just checked to see the results of the Scholastic school vote.

I don’t like it: Obama won 51 percent to 45 percent, a large victory.

This is normally right.

THAT SAID, I am still thinking it is wrong this year and we will win BECAUSE much of the voting occurred prior to Romney’s surge. I am thinking and hoping this year it will be wrong again.

Sadly, I’ve been to this dance before and the pretty girl always rejects me. I’ll believe it when I see it, but we need to consider PA lost for the foreseeable future.

Philadelphia can NOT swing PA by itself, so lets stop worrying about the machine there. It’s the suburban counties of Philadelphia: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery that will swing the election.

The last time PA went Republican was in 1988 when Bush Sr. won those counties. GOP voters here are primarily fiscal conservatives first, social issues last.

IMO, Romney is doing the best in the suburbs since 2000, because he’s making the economy first and doesn’t come off as “a Jesus freak” as people liked to call Bush.

Please. This election would have to be a monstrous blowout for Romney to take PA. It hasn’t been competitive since 1988 even with GOP senators and governors.

It’s sad that this won’t be a 50 state sweep for the GOP. It’s, even, sadder that it won’t be a 57 state sweep for the GOP, either. It’s saddest of all that a very small government conservative won’t win the ‘12 POTUS race.

I am here in Pa around the Reading area. I have seen one Obama sign, and the Romney signs are next to impossible to get because of demand. An empty chair in the yard will have to do.
