Nervous about Pennsylvania — Does internal polling tell a different story?

According to CNN’s Political Ticker, the governor of Pennsylvania is nervous about Obama’s standing in the state even though the CNN Poll has Obama ahead in the state by 13 points.

Rendell said the McCain campaign is clearly making a push to win Pennsylvania, given the recent visits by the Arizona senator, his wife and his running mate. As a result, he wants Obama to appear in western Pennsylvania, Harrisburg and one more “large rally” in Philadelphia. Democrats generally worry that the race is significantly closer than what recent polls have suggested. According to Rendell, there is also worry among Democrats the McCain campaign has successfully raised the enthusiasm level among Republicans in the state.

“I don’t want to be selfish,” Rendell said. “But I’m still a little nervous, so I have asked Obama to come back. We understand he’s got demands from 20 different states, but we’d like to see him here.”

This certainly makes me wonder if the internal polling that these Democrats have show Obama with a much lower advantage than the CNN poll.


Obama’s support appears to be weakest in the western part of the state, a region Pennsylvania Rep. Jack Murtha recently called ‘racist,’ and one where he badly lost to Sen. Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

You know? — I really cannot blame them over in western Pennsylvania. Espacially after their being told that they were a bunch of racists. If it were me,  certainly would vote against the that man’s wishes just out of spite.
