The internals of this poll were actually slanted to the Republicans, and still Romney trails by 7%.

Rick Santorum shows with his anomalous performance in Pennsylvania (Romney fares comparatively better against President Obama about everywhere else) that the Favorite Son effect can have some significance in a Presidential race. RS may have been away from Pennsylvania for a long time as a political influence, but six years since a drubbing is a long time in politics. He is the only one with any connection with Pennsylvania, for what that is worth.

The Favorite Son effect is worth about 10%.

So Romney is losing PA by 7 points but also winning the national popular vote?

These polls are ridiculous.

Q12 Who did you vote for President in 2008?

John McCain................................................... 46%
Barack Obama................................................ 47%
Someone else/Don't remember ...................... 7%

This looks more like a 2010 electorate than like a 2008 electorate.

Another factor is the Occupy stuff. When the American Spring starts, that could very well be the end of the Republican Party as a major political force.

Some of Obama's votes and being underpolled.Obama beat Mccain by nearly 10 not 1 In 2008.
However even here Obama still wins.Even the favorared son effect doesn't give Santorum a win.

Does the American Spring happen before or after the Dark Knight Rises?  And how does this effect the coming Rapture?
