Poll: Obama Leads Romney by 6

Politicos continue to debate whether PA is really in play for 2012, but we continue to get the swing state treatment from national pollsters. Rasmussen’s latest numbers show President Obama leading Mitt Romney 47 to 41.

They’re right in the neighborhood of this week’s survey from Public Policy Polling, which showed the President ahead 50 to 42.

President Obama and allied super PACs have been airing TV ads in PA regularly, including a new one debuted today. Romney’s camp has kept off the air for the most part, but super PACs opposing Obama have helped fill void.

Rasmussen polled 500 likely voters on May 21, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports with a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percent with a 95% level of confidence. For the most part the firm used automated polling methods; a more detailed explanation of their methodology is here.

  1. I love how Repubs are trying to make this looks like a positive. PA has always been fools gold for the GOP in presidential elections. Go focus on Ohio, Virginia, and Florida.

  2. Two weeks before the election Carter polled higher than Reagan and we all know how that turned out.
