Trib poll shows presidential race in Pennsylvania remains too close to call

President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney entered the final days of the presidential race tied in a state that the campaigns only recently began contesting, a Tribune-Review poll shows.
The poll showed the race for Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes locked up at 47 percent in its final week. Romney was scheduled to campaign in the Philadelphia area on Sunday, and former President Bill Clinton planned to stump for Obama on Monday. The campaigns have begun to saturate the airwaves with millions of dollars in presidential advertising.
“They’re both in here because of exactly what you’re seeing” in this poll, said Jim Lee, president of Susquehanna Polling & Research, which surveyed 800 likely voters Oct. 29-31. Most of the interviews occurred after Hurricane Sandy inundated Eastern and Central Pennsylvania. The poll’s error margin is 3.46 percentage points.

4. Why in the world are you posting this?

Or are you living in some kind of time warp and somehow haven't been told that election day was yesterday and Barack Obama won, including Pennsylvania.

9. I thought I had a very good sense of irony.

But this does not come across as ironic, but as a post from someone who is unaware of what happened yesterday.

10. Respectfully, You Can't Believe I Didn't Know There Was An Election

Especially an election I donated to and phone banked for.

7. Good reminder. Maybe next time DU will not freak out so much over bogus polls.

Of course we now have Nate Silver who is officially GAWD.
