Romney Closing In On Obama In Pa

08.16.12 | Sarah Harnisch

A new Franklin & Marshall College poll shows Mitt Romney is cutting into President Obama's lead in Pennsylvania.  A month ago, Obama was up by double digits. Today that lead is just six points, 44 to 38 percent. The poll also shows Governor Tom Corbett's approval rating is at an all-time low. Pollsters say it's mostly due to the bare-bones budget that passed earlier this summer.

Meanwhile, Gallup polling says there was no immediate bounce for Mitt Romney after he pick of Paul Ryan as Vice President. 47-percent of registered voters said they supported Romney before the announcement. After the Ryan announcement, 46 percent backed Romney, which is essentially the same if you provide for a margin of error.
