Polls throughout Pennsylvania have been putting the Keystone State in President Obama’s pocket for months, but a recent Susquehanna Research and poll, commissioned by the Pa. Republican Party, says otherwise.
An average compiled by Real Clear Politics puts Obama over Romney by 8.6 percent in the state, while this SP&R poll shows the President with a slim 1-point lead, 48 percent to 47 – well within the margin of error.
The Dems laughed off the poll, saying it was a desperate attempt to keep donors from putting away their checkbooks and moving on to other, more contested, states.
So, is this wishful thinking by the GOP to improve their down-ballot outlook, or do the Dems have something to worry about?
