To: My Favorite Headache

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.

Even if he wins Pennsylvania, make him work for it. The more effort he expends keeping states previously thought safe, the less he can spare for the battleground states. But by all means, do all you can to make him lose Pennsylvania.

Can we give Philadelphia to New Jersy? If we could PA would be one of the brightest RED states in the country.

Until a Republican has the balls to question the 100% PLUS turnout that typically occurs in Philadelphia it will be hard to win a national election. Somehow, despite the population of Philadelphia decreasing dramatically over the years, the vote total out of Philly remains constant!?

The only hope, pray for a nasty, stormy, day on election day.

I'd say Montgomery County is the real “swing” county in PA. Philly is going Dem. A big chunk of the center will go Republican. Montgomery County has been going Dem for the past several presidential cycles — the last time it was solidly Republican was the 1980s.

I did notice two people who had Obama signs in 2008 have Romney signs now but in my area, there strangely aren't nearly as many signs as there were in 2008. Perhaps that is a good thing. Perhaps it means all the 2008 Obama voters just aren't enthusiastic this time.

I live on Long Island, but I was recently on a road trip through NEPA (Pike, Wayne, and Lackawanna Counties). Romney/Ryan lawn signs outnumbered Obama signs by 5:1.

Glad to hear the same seems to be true in SWPA.

Regards,

All we can do is do our own small part within our sphere of influence.

Convince five or six neighbors to vote against Obama, and you’ve won a victory.

The state will go as it goes. As long as this clown gets removed, that’s the main thing. If we can get Casey out as well, that’s better.
