Clinton over Obama by 3 in PA

 By: Uwecwiz (D-WI) - 2008-04-09 @ 10:28:40

Raleigh, N.C. – Hillary Clinton has taken back a small lead over Barack Obama in
Pennsylvania, according to the newest survey from Public Policy Polling.
Clinton has a 46-43 advantage in the state after trailing Obama by two points in PPP’s
poll last week.
Clinton’s improvement since last week comes almost entirely from her core
demographics. Her lead among women improved from 10 points to 16, her lead among
white voters went from 11 to 17, and her lead with senior citizens showed a gain from 16
to 21.
“Hillary Clinton’s made a small rebound in the last week to get the lead back,” said Dean
Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “But this does seem to be confirmation that
it’s a pretty tight race in Pennsylvania and could go either way depending on what the
campaigns do over the next two weeks.”
The survey also found that 37% of likely voters are concerned that the drawn out primary
will hurt Democratic prospects of winning in the fall. Obama has a 47-41 lead with those
voters. Clinton is leading 50-40 among the 52% of respondents who are not worried the
contest continuing will impede the chances of defeating John McCain.
Obama has a 53-35 advantage in the Philadelphia metro area, while Clinton leads every
other region of the state.
PPP surveyed 1124 likely Democratic primary voters on April 7th and 8th. The survey’s
margin of error is +/- 2.9%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and
weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
PPP will have its next Pennsylvania Democratic poll on Wednesday, April 16th.
