    Sheesh.. Democrats got their butts kicked in the 2010 election, lets all hope that the trend continues...:thup:

    It is interesting that Pennsylvania is considered a toss up State now and Romney's ground game is in full force within the State

    Comments & Results of 2010 election

    Pennsylvania has been a blue state. Registered Democrats far outnumber Republicans, and it voted Democratic in all five presidential elections from 1992 to 2008. Still, the state swings with national trends.

    And for this election at least, Pennsylvania turned red, with residents expressing anxiety over joblessness, the economy and, especially among older voters, the health care overhaul.

    Republicans won the governorship, picked up a seat in the Senate, gained five seats in the House, and took control of both chambers of the Legislature.

    “It was just a sweeping Republican victory,” said Rogers Smith, a political scientist at the University of Pennsylvania.

    In the governor’s race, Tom Corbett, a Republican attorney general who campaigned as a government reformer on a broad investigation he led into legislative corruption, defeated Dan Onorato, the Democratic executive of Allegheny County. Gov. Edward G. Rendell, a Democrat, is leaving office because of term limits.

    Papa Obama's "hold" on PA, is tenuous, at best

    Sadly for the left

    National Polls show
    the trends are all in Romney's way
    and above Papa Obama

    PA will be no different

    Papa Obama is not working
    and nobody likes to vote for a loser

    the cities such as Philly, Pittsburgh and Harrrisburg will be Obama territory.

    The rest of the state will remember the "bitterly clinging" remark on election day.

    Also, if you read some of the posts from the far left around here you would think the GOP is dead.

    Not hardly............................

    The radical left is holding on to "Hope"
    while the rest of the country hangs on to "change'

    With Republicans mostly in charge of redistricting the State, it does make for an interesting twist..
