Obama's Lead In PA Within The Margin OF Error?

Ace picked up an interesting story on Pennsylvania today. It looks like Obama's internal poll numbers were accidentally leaked to a radio talk show host in Scranton,PA and they showed Obama up by a mere two points statewide...well within the margin of error

The material was received by Steve Corbett, a radio talk show host in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and came from Grant Olin who heads the Wilkes-Barre headquarters of the Obama campaign. The email was addressed to 627 Obama campaign volunteers in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton region, saying that Obama Headquarters reported an internal poll which shows that Obama is only 2 points up in Pennsylvania.

Corbett interviewed Sean Smith, the communications director of Obama’s Pennsylvania campaign, via phone. He admitted that Grant "went rogue", and acknowledged that Grant was "reprimanded" for this... and, by the way, notice he refused to deny whether the figures were accurate.

I have a feeling they just might be...since McCain is fighting hard for Pennsylvania despite all polls showing him losing there, and not only is he not an idiot, but he couldn't afford to waste his limited resources in Pennsylvania unless his own polling showed him within striking distance.

Of course, not only is Pennsylvania filled with bitter people clinging to their guns and religion, but they're a bunch of redneck racists in Western PA to boot. Just ask John Murtha...

A McCain-Palin pick up of Pennsylvania could change the whole ball game, and it's not impossible, considering how the state rejected Obama in the primaries, Joe Biden's reamrks on hoiw the Obama administration was going to shun clean coal ( a big deal there) and how they keep getting insulted by the Obama campaign..remember, it's not over until it's over.

two(2) points is well within the bradley effect.

PA didn't care that the liberal illuminati called them numerous names, they still showed up and supported them. So when they ignore them and their demands, they'll have no one to blame but themselves.
