Rasmussen: Obama Leads In Pennsylvania By 4
Obama – 46%
McCain – 42%
Obama actually gained 1 point and McCain lost 1, so he gained some ground this month.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Pennsylvania Democrats support Obama, up from 63% in May. The Democratic candidate has an eleven point edge among unaffiliated voters, little changed over the past month.
Party support is firming up for McCain as well, with 77% of Republicans backing him now versus 71% in May.
Obamaâ€™s gains have come primarily among menâ€”Obama now leads by eight among males. Last month the candidates were essentially even.
So this race could be a lot closer than I think. Perhaps Tom Ridge isn’t the best VP pick for base Republicans given his abortion stance, but with the race in PA so tight he could certainly help swing it.
