While the presidential race has tightened in some swing states, the Morning Call finds Pennsylvania unmoved:
President Barack Obama maintains his lead in the lean-blue state with 49 percent support to Romney’s 40 percent among likely voters, according to a The Morning Call/Muhlenberg College public poll conducted this week. In other recent polls of the state Obama’s lead has ranged from 12 points to six points, but he’s consistently been ahead.
A third of likely voters in the state view Rep. Paul Ryan favorably and a third view him unfavorably. Nearly half of voters view President Obama favorably, but only 37 percent view Mitt Romney favorably.
