Obama Gains Big In Pennsylvania

9

Another firewall state for Hillary seems to be fading away.

From Quinnipac:

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, surging among younger voters, has cut Sen. Hillary Clinton’s lead among Pennsylvania likely Democratic primary voters to 6 points, 49 – 43 percent, after trailing by 16 points just two weeks ago, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. […] This compares to a 52 – 36 percent lead for Sen. Clinton February 14.

So what happened?

This biggest movement is among younger voters who went from 52 – 41 percent for Clinton February 14 to 58 – 41 percent for Obama today, a shift of 28 points.

Obviously Obama will have to count on more than just the youth vote in Pennsylvania, but I have a feeling if he gets a tie or a win in either Texas or Ohio, Pennsylvania will swing his way.
