>With tonight’s debate just a few a hours away and looming large for John McCain to turn the tide against surging poll numbers for Barack Obama come the latest poll from Pennsylvania.
The latest SurveyUSA poll in Pennsylvania finds Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. John McCain by 15 points, 55% to 40%.
In less than two weeks, Obama is up 5 points; McCain is down 4.
Key findings: “Among white voters, who make-up 87% of PA’s electorate, Obama had trailed by 3, now leads by 4 — a 7-point swing to the Democrat, which, when combined with Obama’s now 24:1 advantage among black voters, puts Obama in prime position to capture the 21 Keystone Electoral Votes as the two candidates head for home.”
Does this mean that McCain will soon pull out of Pennsylvania, like he did Michigan if tonight’s debate goes badly? We will have to wait and see.
