Poll shows Obama has slim lead in Pa. over Romney

By Timothy McNulty / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

President Barack Obama is maintaining a single-digit lead over Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania, and opening up leads in two other presidential battleground states in the latest Quinnipiac University poll, but the Republican has reasons for hope in the Keystone State.

Mr. Romney has closed a bit of ground in the state since Quinnipiac's study in early May, which may help explain why Mr. Obama plans his first bus tour of the campaign late next week, with stops in northern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania after Independence Day. The incumbent Democrat leads the school's latest poll of Pennsylvania voters, 45-39 percent, after having an 8-point edge last month.

The Democrat cleans up with women voters, leading by 12 percentage points, while men are split. Mr. Obama has a 45 percent approval rating in the state to 47 percent who disapprove -- which is about where it has been for months -- while Mr. Romney's rating is at 34-39 percent approval-disapproval.

A similar poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal of Pennsylvania and 11 other swing states showed Mr. Obama with a 50-42 percent lead over Mr. Romney and a five-point jump in the Republican's disapproval numbers, suggesting the Democrat's television attack ads on Mr. Romney's business practices have been effective in these early stages of the general election run.

The Quinnipiac study showed Mr. Obama with a nine-point lead in Ohio and a four-point lead in Florida after finding the presidential race too close to call in either state last month.

There is a long way to go in this race -- with unresolved questions about the Supreme Court ruling on the president's health care bill, or Mr. Romney's choice of a running mate or the pair's performance in debates -- but four months out the incumbent is in decent shape in the three battleground states.

No one has won the presidential race since 1960 without taking at least two of three in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.

If Mr. Obama "wins all three states, he gets re-elected," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

The Pennsylvania results track those from other pollsters who have lately given Mr. Obama a 6-8 percentage point lead in the swing state.

Mr. Romney's team can glean some reasons for optimism in the study. If he is behind by 6 points in Pennsylvania, that nearly cuts in half Mr. Obama's winning 10-point edge over Republican John McCain in 2008.

And independent voters support Mr. Romney 43-37 percent over Mr. Obama in the state, while supporting Mr. Obama in the other swing states. Those voters are split on the favorability of Mr. Romney, but 54 percent are unfavorable toward Mr. Obama and 37 percent favorable.

The total voter pool is split on which candidates would better handle the economy, but independents trend toward Mr. Romney over Mr. Obama 49-35 percent on the issue.

Mr. Brown had no explanation for Mr. Romney's boost from Pennsylvania independents, but said it could come from registered Democrats critical of Mr. Obama telling pollsters they are independent. The state has a higher percentage of Democrats than either Florida or Ohio.

Officials in the president's campaign confirmed Mr. Obama would swing through Ohio and Pennsylvania late next week but provided no specific locations or dates. Mr. Romney did a bus tour through those states and others two weeks ago and had dueling campaign events with the president in Ohio. Mr. Obama was last in the Pittsburgh area to stump for his jobs bill in October, and Mr. Romney has made three area stops since April.

Notice how Quinnipiac titles their own analysis of their most recent poll...

----------

June 27, 2012 - Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania Swinging To Obama

FLORIDA: Obama 45 - Romney 41 OHIO: Obama 47 - Romney 38 PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 45 - Romney 39 Voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania support President Barack Obama's new immigration policy and are divided on whether the president or Gov. Mitt Romney would be better for their personal economic future, as they give Obama leads in these three critical swing states, a razor thin 4 points in Florida, a healthy 9 points in Ohio and 6 points in Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.

This compares to the results of a May 3 Swing State Poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, showing Obama with an 8-point lead in Pennsylvania with Florida and Ohio too close to call.

Matching Obama against Romney in each of these key states - no one has won the White House since 1960 without taking at least two of them - shows:

Florida: Obama edges Romney 45 - 41 percent;
Ohio: Obama over Romney 47 - 38 percent;
Pennsylvania: Obama tops Romney 45 - 39 percent.

"President Barack Obama has decent margins over Gov. Mitt Romney in Ohio and Pennsylvania and a smaller advantage in Florida. If he can keep those leads in all three of these key swing states through election day he would be virtually assured of re-election," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

The MSM wants a horserace so they spin the poll in that direction.

But the pollsters themselves see it differently - "Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania Swinging To Obama."

It more than likely will be Obama for four more. Hopefully then we can find a canidate, from either party who will actually work with the majority of Americans in the middle.

Obama has bent over backwards to try to work with the other party. He's compromised on every major issue only to be flatly rejected.

Their stated number one priority has been the defeat of the President, and they have done nothing but obstruct everything since then. They even fight against their own policy proposals after the President accepts them - even to the point of going to the SCOTUS to get their own ideas declared unconstitutional.

The GOP is the sole reason nothing is getting done in DC. I had hoped you guys would have nominated Newt or Santorum. At least then when he lost some of the rational heads in the GOP might have stopped to re-evaluate their extremism.

Now I'm afraid it will be just like the Bush administration failure and the McCain defeat - the rightwing rationale will be that they lost because they weren't extreme enough And the GOP moves further toward the edge of the cliff and nothing gets done for another four years.

If you are serious about wanting a functional government, take a look at your own party and do something about it. Until you do your party is doomed to be a permanent minority.

So you're not a Republican?

If you were a Democrat your criticisms of the President and the Congress would be different. Your criticisms are classic rightwing.

**********

Those of us who are critics of Obama would have so much more respect and FAITH in him if he STOPPED laying blame everywhere ELSE but at his own feet!!!

Did we take the excuses of the many CEOS whose companies needed bailing out that it was the Board of director's or his/her staff's fault the company failed?

Or did we (and Obama and libs) lay the ENTIRE blame on the CEO?

Do you libs blame congress for anything during the Bush years or BUSH himself?

If you blame BUSH for EVERYTHING bad that happens, BECAUSE he was President, then you totally DEMEAN Obama as LESS than a MAN and leader if you do not hold him to the SAME STANDARD AS BUSH!!

By not holding Obama to the same standard as Bush is RACIST because you are saying a Black man is LESS than a white one as leader (good or bad).... so libs, are you racists?

Holy shit! The SCOTUS actually ruled on the individual mandate legally instead of politically.

----------

"The individual mandate survives as a tax."

"So the mandate is constitutional. Chief Justice Roberts joins the left of the Court."

Frankly, I'm surprised. But pleasantly surprised.
