Ras: Obama up by 12

Published by Tim McNulty on .

The latest Pa presidential survey from the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports is more in line with other major polls -- showing a big lead for Barack Obama -- than the GOP/Susquehanna poll showing the race is a dead heat with Mitt Romney.

Here's what Rasmussen released today:

President Obama has jumped to a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania shows Obama with 51% of the vote to Romney’s 39%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
