Obama maintains strong lead in Pa., poll shows
Advertisements [?]
With less than two weeks before the election, Democrat Barack Obama continues to hold a commanding lead over Republican John McCain in the presidential race among likely voters in Pennsylvania, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll released this morning.

The poll shows Mr. Obama with a 13-point lead in the state. He also holds a 5-point lead among white voters and blue collar voters, groups Democrats have lost in Pennsylvania in recent presidential elections. White men still back Mr. McCain, said Clay F. Richards, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

In a key battleground area of the state, the four suburban counties surrounding Philadelphia historically have voted Republican. "But with an increasing frequency lately, the Philly suburbs have been voting Democratic," Mr. Richards said. "In the new Quinnipiac poll, Obama leads in these counties, 57-31, a tide that will be hard to turn for John McCain before Election Day."

Mr. Obama also leads in Allegheny County(Pittsburgh metro area), 54-39, the poll says.
