June Pa. Poll Shows Obama, 48 to Romney, 36

Obama leads Romney in the latest Pennsylvania poll.

The June 2012 Franklin & Marshall College Poll finds President Barack Obama with a comfortable lead over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The president enjoys significant advantages over Romney in his personal popularity and most voters believe he is better prepared to handle the presidency even though they are ambivalent about some of his major policy initiatives.

Meanwhile, a conservative SuperPAC called Crossroads GPS is hitting Obama on spending in a 32-second commercial called "Stopwatch," according to PoliticsPa.

The ad blasts Obama over his 2008 presidential campaign pledge to curb spending in the U.S.

Crossroads GPS said it will spend $727,000 on its latest ad in Pennsylvania as a part of its $2.3 million advocacy effort in the state.

The Franklin & Marshall College Poll is produced in conjunction with the Philadelphia Daily News, WGAL-TV (South Central PA), Pittsburgh Tribune Review, WTAE‐TV (Pittsburgh), WPVI‐TV6/ABC (Philadelphia), Times-Shamrock Newspapers, Harrisburg Patriot‐News, and Lancaster Newspapers.

And who is Obama for??? They run in the same circle. Obama's biggest donors are wall street firms and banks.

@Voice.....God has been blessing Obama since 2008.....and where has it gotten our country? Maybe we need to get back to blessing the United States of America rather than blessing the man responsible for destrying it! Nothing, and I am willing to listen to the rhetoric, but NOTHING has been accomplished by this administration! He is a great orator, but aside from TELLING us what he will do, he has done nothing. When he had control of House and Senate, he buried us in $5 trillion greater debt, bamboozled his followers into an illegal heathcare scam (as the silent majority did NOT want his plan), and changes his voice depending upon to whom and where he is speaking. He takes his $$$ from the same group as the rest of them, and quite frankly most of us aren't "his folks". American people, constituents, citizens, but dont homey me down and call me folks. We dont come from the same village or clan, he cannot connect with any single group, he plays the role, but does nothing, yet according to most polls, a decreasing majority continues to enjoy his rhetoric. Its never his fault, he knows nothing about anything, yet he is ready to take the applause and rewards he has never actually deserved. Even his supporters in 2008 had to wonder when he won a Nobel Prize......for doing WHAT?
