Poll: Romney narrowing the gap in Pennsylvania

President Obama’s re-election hopes are looking less and less certain today, specifically in Pennsylvania, according to the latest Franklin & Marshall College poll showing the president leading Republican challenger Mitt Romney by only 4 percentage points, 48 percent to 44 percent, with 5 percent undecided.

The poll, which was conducted from October 23-October 28, shows the gap between the two candidates shrink since last month. In September, Obama led Romney 5o percent to 39 percent.

A candidate’s favorability was also polled and Obama is sitting at 50/44, favorable to unfavorable, while Romney 40/44, favorable to unfavorable. However, when it comes to handling the economy, for instance, Romney leads Obama, 47 percent to 42 percent.

Even though the president is leading, this should come as no surprise to the Romney campaign as of late. Yesterday, the Romney campaign bought several million dollars worth of ads in Pennsylvania and two anti-Obama super PACs have also significantly invested in the Keystone State within the past two weeks.
