Skip to comments.Pennsylvania: Obama 47%, Romney 41%
Posted on 05/23/2012 9:53:28 AM PDT by Clintonfatigued
President Obama now holds a six-point lead over Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania, a state considered essential to his reelection bid.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Keystone State shows the president with 47% support, while the putative Republican presidential nominee picks up 41% of the vote. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

No worries Barry, Philly has 120% voter turnout and the New Black Panthers have your back!
I wonder what parts of the state have the most undecided voters?
Worked for the RaceMarxist....
For now, I wouldn’t waste a dime in PA. If everything else starts falling into line, PA will come along on its own. But it’s the perennial “teaser,” and should be treated as such.
At least I learned a new word today.
PA is so screwed up!
1) It’s early.
2) Obama is below 50% as an incumbent.
3) Bradley effect.
What’d they do, oversample West Philly?
To many idiots in too many states. Obama’s message is horrible so he will probably lose in November and be back seeking the presidency in a couple cycles from now.
We Conservatives are a small voting block, but since Romney is probably going to lose in a very close election, we are an ESSENTIAL voting block to the RNC.
If the RNC wants to win the 2012 National Presidential and Congressional, they must have our full support.
We impressed the RNC with our 2010 efforts, but the RNC has done NOTHING to put the values of our 89 Warriors into effect.
We now hold the balance of power, IF WE INSIST ON AN OPEN CONVENTION.
Without an Open Convention the GOP-E will choose weak Candidate Romney to lose to Obama, just like they did with lame-brain McCain in 2008.
If the RNC overrules their own stupid Primary Rules, then there is the POSSIBILITY that the Delegates will choose a stellar Conservative Dark Horse that we can promote with vigor to topple Dictator (in his own mind) Obama.
Ponder these ideas, chat with others, and lets visit again on this unique opportunity to not only beat Obama, but slaughter Obama and his Marxist ideas in a massive election Republican Landslide.
Even on the VERY slim chance that Romney squeaks by Obama in November, the Federal problems we have today will be worse in 4 years with Romney as POTUS.
If the RNC wants to win this election, they need us. Let us bring that fact to their attention by a vigorous, grass-roots Campaign for an OPEN Convention.
What say all of you?
“Obama is below 50% as an incumbent.”
PA is a must win state for the Kenyan.
If he can’t win there he might as well resign now.
I blame the 5% who favor someone else.
I live in PA. It’s Philly and Pittsburgh that go 120% Dem and give them the state. They did get whipped in 2010, so maybe the state can do that again. A lot of people are fed up.
The big news in this poll is how many are undecided. Undecided voters usually break away from the incumbent.
Only 5% describe themselves as undecided. 7% want some other candidate. Wonder how many of that 7% are conservatives.
In the long run, PA may come along, but for now this Charlie Brown won’t take a run at this football.
7 percent voting an ‘other’ candidate?! likely most grumpy republicans. it is close to an even race
“For now, I wouldnt waste a dime in PA. If everything else starts falling into line, PA will come along on its own. But its the perennial teaser, and should be treated as such.”
Obama will win Pennsylvania — not by much, but he’ll still win there.
Our resources should concentrated on North Carolina, Florida, Virginia (especially), Ohio (critical), Nevada, and New Hampshire.
Romney needs all of these to win (even little NH). If there is some way we can “tip” Wisconsin to our side, that will change things, and New Hampshire won’t be needed. But unless we get WI, NH is a must.
That’s a THREE POINT DROP for the Messiah since the the most recent PA poll.
Anyone see a trend?
Rasmussen Reports 5/21 - 5/21 500 LV 47 41 Obama +6
PPP (D) 5/17 - 5/20 671 RV 50 42 Obama +8
Quinnipiac 4/25 - 5/1 1168 RV 47 39 Obama +8
Musta’ been pollin in Philly and the liberal suburbs of Westchester and Bucks Counties and eastern PA
I think (hope) the rest of the state has seen the light on that pos
These ass clowns voted for the Kenyan last time even after he insulted them with the “bitter clinger” line. Screw PA
This will be the first election in Pa. with Voter ID. Will be interesting as to how that will affect results.
They must be oversampling Philly. Outside of college campi, black neighborhoods and kool aid drinkers in union halls, Obama is not popular anyplace I go in this state so far as I can see.
When Obama loses in November he will be done electorally outside of Illinois.
He can't ever be the candidate of the future again, and that is the only line that has ever worked for him. If he has to run on actual plans and accomplishments like most people he is sunk, except maybe in a socialist 'Rat-hole like IL.
Too many pumpkin pie, hair-cutted freaks there in the state of Pennsylvania???
I think the booing that Joe Biden got at the Pittsburgh St. Patty’s Day Parade is far more indicative than this poll.
Romney is going to beat Obama comfortably in November.
In the meantime the GOP nominee (Romney) will be chosen according to the rules set in place before the primary voting began.
Romney just swept two more primaries yesterday under those rules. He has no reason to unilaterally walk away from the nomination he has won.
America is fed up with the Kenyan Kommie.
Everyone but the FR He-Man Mitt-Haters Club can see that.

LOVE LOVE LOVE your tag line!!!!
It’s gonna be harder for the Dems to cheat with the new Voter ID requirement in PA.
That won’t matter in the Philly precincts. Oh how much I despise that city.
Trumka is whipping up the union vote for Obama. Have you seen all the articles predicting that the PA unions won’t turn abandon Obama?
I agree that America is fed up, but this is still an uphill fight. There are too many idiots in the voting population.
The west PA Pittsburgh region is big union and usually goes for Dems. Philly almost always is largely in the Dem camp. I dont’ see the unions not voting for Obama.
putative - from the Latin word, puto, putare, to think or believe. In this case, the believed, or thought to be.
I think that’s the reason that Obama came out in support of the natural gas in PA, because his anti-coal-anti-industry stance wasn’t playing well with some of the union members.
Here in WA State, a lot of the union members have abandoned Obama and joined the GOP because of his reliance on the Green Agenda.
You know all those white male blue collar workers that they keep saying Obama lost? Well I found them, in the WA state GOP, voting Anyone But Obama.
Geeze Eva, I guess I learned it twice now.;)
Yep, in 2000, Al Gore got more than 100% of the number of eligible voters in Philadelphia, not more than 100% of the vote, but more than 100% of the total number of people of voting age in Philadelphia.
I agree that there are far too many idiots. The leftists have been manufacturing idiots through the media, the schools, and the culture for decades. It will take us decades to work our way back to where we need to be. The tea party movement is a big part of that, as is being Breitbart via the new media. It's on!
Negative! - We fight in the states most critical to the DNC, namely Ohio & Pennsylvania, plus a couple of others.
This forces them to expend huge resources to defend these EVs & prevents them from steamrollering us with media PR in states like Florida, NC, Ohio & Wis.
And we might just reach a tipping point in Pa, you know - And that would be the end.
Barring a sea change Obama has already lost Florida.
The MSM will lie cheat & steal right up to the end to force the GOP to spend resources here but BarryO is going bye bye here.
Its going to come down to Pa, Ohio, & Florida - take 2 of those 3 and start measuring the curtains
AKA “commonly known as”
I think he’ll lose OH. It was pretty close in 08.
tough to overcome Union votes and Democratic activism
I hope so! The whole thing is sickening and has probably been going on since the 60’s.
Rasmussen has Senator Casey Jr. up over Tom Smith by only 48-41
That surprises me Tom Smith has a ton of money (his own), but I don’t know what else he has going for him. I know he’s a coal executive, but that’s about it.
A similar situation to NJ perhaps? Several people have thought this race could turn competitive.
