Obama Losing Swing State Pennsylvania

    According to a recent Quinnipiac Poll:

    Voters in the key swing state of Pennsylvania have some troubling news for President Obama: A majority say he doesn't deserve another four years in the White House.

    According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, 52 percent of registered Pennsylvania voters say the president does not deserve a second term while 42 percent support his re-election.

    The president’s job approval ratings are also underwater in the Keystone State, 43 percent to 54 percent. The majority of independent voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing, 56 percent to 40 percent. By a nine-point margin, 51 percent of this important voting bloc don’t think the president deserves re-election.

    In a hypothetical head-to-head general election matchup, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leads Obama by a slim margin of 44 percent to 42 percent. The two candidates split independent voters, each garnering 39 percent support.

    Perhaps more worrisome for the president, though, is that he holds only a two-point edge (within the poll’s margin of error) over former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a long-shot for the GOP nomination but a candidate Obama led by 11 points in the last Quinnipiac poll, conducted in June.



    Another swing state...Florida results come tomorrow

    Isn't Philly in Pennsylvania? :D

    Obama has not lost Pennsylvania. The rest of the state is just along for the ride.

    Obama's not really worried. After-all, those people are just bitter, clinging to their guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
  6. I dont think he deserves a 2nd term

    I disapprove of the job he's doing

    I'm still voting for him though because I disapprove of the GOP even more

    And it took them this long to figure this out?

    I knew it the first time I heard BO speak, in 2008.

    Say that reminds me, don't forget BO stinks.
