Thirteen Month Pregnancy Pennsylvania Round-Up

Vote for MoveOn’s best "Obama in 30 Seconds" ad here

Dan Balz in the WaPo: "Democratic strategists will be looking at Obama’s performance in Pennsylvania. ‘If the returns from cities like Erie and Cresson indicate he still hasn’t closed the sale with blue-collar voters, that would be a huge vulnerability for him,’ wrote Rick Sloan, communications director for the International Association of Machinists, which has endorsed Clinton."

Roger Simon says 15% of voters believe Obama is a Muslim. Since 28% think Saddam Hussein was involved in the September 11 attacks, I’d say that’s probably pretty good.

Markos predicts an 8 point Clinton win, which "would be good news for her campaign. If people expect 11 points, then she underperforms and looks weak."

Politico: "In order for Clinton to win a decisive victory of 10 points or more, she needs to win two-thirds of the votes in a group of eight industrial-oriented counties, each of which has 55,000 or more registered Democrats. Those counties are Lackawanna (Scranton) and Luzerne (Wilkes-Barre) in the Northeast, Erie in the Northwest, Cambria County (Johnstown), and the Pittsburgh-area counties of Westmoreland, Fayette, Beaver, and Washington."

Todd Beeton has the final polls in PA:

There have been reports on MSNBC of voting machine problems in Philadelphia. As luck would have it, this is a great tool you can install on your website to file voter complaints in Pennsylvania.
