HARRISBURG (CBS) — A new Franklin and Marshall College Poll shows President Obama with a comfortable lead in Pennsylvania.
The newest F&M Poll shows Obama leading Mitt Romney by 11 percentage points among registered Pennsylvania voters, with 6% undecided, and leading by 9 points among likely voters, with 3% undecided.
In either case, poll director Terry Madonna sees little the former Massachusetts governor can do to win Pennsylvania, barring some external event that changes the game.
“I think something external,” Madonna says. “I think there’s probably very little the governor can do himself, although the debates do offer one opportunity for the governor to perhaps change the dynamic, with the emphasis on the word ‘perhaps’.”
The poll also shows voters still support the state’s voter ID law while nearly half believe the next attorney general should review the Jerry Sandusky investigation.
