But that survey has proved to be an outlier and the latest Real Clear Politics average of Pennsylvania polls shows Mr. Obama with an 8-point lead with just over a month to go until Election Day.
“The battleground map presents many opportunities right now, Pennsylvania being one of them,” said Kevin Madden, a top Romney adviser. “Ultimately, we are trying to get to 270 electoral votes and we think Pennsylvania can play a part in getting us there.
“As part of our effort to compete across a bunch of states, it helps that we have great fundraising support there,” Mr. Madden said. “The resources we raise there can help us compete with Obama everywhere else and we can also use our travel there to make inroads with voters in the crucial Philadelphia suburbs.”
