Clinton Widens Gap in Pennsylvania

Newsmax/Zogby Poll: Clinton Edges Ahead in Pennsylvania


UTICA, New York – New York Democrat Hillary Clinton had a good day in the Newsmax/Zogby daily tracking poll ahead of Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary, following a strong debate performance in Philadelphia Wednesday night, and now holds a 47% to 43% advantage over Barack Obama of Illinois.

The two-day tracking survey, which was conducted April 16-17, 2008, showed that 10% were either undecided or supported someone else.

The telephone survey, conducted using live operators working out of Zogby’s on-site call center in Upstate New York, included 602 likely Democratic primary voters in Pennsylvania. It carries a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percentage points.

The race appears stable, as Clinton retained a sizable lead in western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh, while Obama continues to lead by a large percentage in eastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia. In the central part of the state, including the state capital of Harrisburg, Clinton leads by eight points.

  1. Do Pennsylvania voters know that
    Reps. Patrick Murphy took a $18,826.00 “donation” from Barack Obama prior to endorsing him?
    I think that taints his endorsement more than alittle bit and sells out the voters of Pennsyvania that havent even been able to vote yet.
    Do Pennsylvania voters know that Barack Obama has “donated” huge sums to Pennsylvania’s Super Delegates? Talk about back room politics. Is he trying to buy votes from Super Delegates and take votes away from Pennsyvania voters?
    Why are some Pennsylvania Super Delegates taking huge sums of money from someone they have to cast a vote on? Is that like paying the judge before the verdict? Pennsylvania Rep. Patrick Murphy took $18,826.00 from Barack Obama before he endoresed Barack Obama, kinda puts his endorsement in question. There are more Pennsylvania politicians taking BIG MONEY from Barack Obama for their Super Delegate votes and Pennsylvania voters have not even been able to vote yet.
