Obama's Lead Widens to 11 Points in Pa.

A Philadelphia Inquirer poll shows President Obama has an 11-point lead over Governor Romney

President Barack Obama's lead over Governor Mitt Romney has widened to 11 points in Pennsylvania - indication that the Keystone State might not be a swing state in the 2012 presidential contest.

But a bipartisan team of Philadelphia Inquirer pollsters said it's too early to concede the state to the incumbent.

Former Gov. Rendell said recently that he thinks Pennsylvania is still in play.

But both presidential candidates have pulled TV ads, leaving the airwaves to likely be dominated by statewide races as the Nov. 6 general election approaches.

Obama has a 14-point lead in New Jersey.

@Ronnie- who's vilifying capitalism in the guise of bring a democrat? What I hear is people discussing the effects of wealth polarization compared to income stagnation. I don't think it's un American or anti capitalistic to ask why those who have the most need advantages to allow them to acquire more while the average worker is being left out of benefit of thise advantages. When did supporting labor become socialist or communist in nature? I guess the vast majority if the US population is a bunch of do nothing layabouts looking for a hand out as they work 40+ hours per week to earn a median yearly salary of about $40,000 while losing collective bargaining, pensions and healthcare benefits...because that's somehow seen as communism.

I don't like The Dem or the Rep choice, but I am afraid a vote for Gary, is an edge for Obama

If it looks like Obama is going to lose, he will pull one of his Dictatorship Executive Orders and shaft everyone. Like This EO http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=11250

Thank you Amend! Here is a shout out to the brave folks out there who have the freedom to claim their given names. Lucky for you that you don't earn a living in an institution which exerts the distortions of the Patriot Act (compliments George Bush) and flys in the face of the first amendment. Lucky for you the voicing of your political leanings won't put your job on the line when in conflict of the party leanings of the corporation you work for. Unfortunately, the freedom to reveal my name when voicing my political opinions is not a wise thing to do if I would like to be able to pay my bills next month - best to reinstate the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. What does that say about this United States of America, our Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and the Patriot Act. If you want to scare the daylights out of yourself for the upcoming Halloween season, read all of them. Likely your heart will swell with pride for our US of A, then your hair will stand on end when you read the Patriot Act. With that said, I am an Independent Progressive with a Republican fiscal philosphy and Democratic values. The problem with being what I am, is that largely the Progressives seem fragmented and undefined, Republicans of the day are only so in theory, not deed. And the Democrats are too idealistic. But, I will be taking my PRD keister to the voting polls and casting my vote for President Obama! Largely because, as Joe Biden says, "he has a spine."
