MCall Poll: Obama 49, Romney 45

President Obama is still under 50 percent and Pa. is still in play according to the latest poll from the Allentown Morning Call and Muhlenberg College.

It showed Obama leading GOP challenger Mitt Romney 49 percent to 45 percent, a margin 3 points narrower than MCall’s poll in late September.

The MCall has not yet published the size of the sample or its composition.

Since the first presidential debate, polls have shown the race growing tighter in Pa. – though neither campaign is on television and the state has seen few visits from the candidates themselves.

Real Clear Politics gives Obama an average polling lead of 4.5 percent, and recently moved Pa. into the “tossup” category.

Quinnipiac said it will release polls of the presidential and U.S. Senate contests in Pa. on Tuesday.

  1. These polls seem unrealistically narrow, especially when you consider that the national parties have pulled advertising out of the state, as they consider PA not to be in play.

    Despite the pull in ads, the Obama team still has a ton of ground game infrastructure for GOTV.
