PPP Polling: Mitt Romney beats Obama in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's looking like it could be a very tough state for Barack Obama in 2012. His approval rating there is only 42% with 52% of voters disapproving of him, and he's within the margin of error in the state against 3 potential Republican opponents, a far cry from his double digit victory there in 2008....
......Of course the Republicans could bail Obama out- if either Newt Gingrich or Sarah Palin ended up as their party nominee. If their GOP peers are slightly unpopular Gingrich and Palin are positively reviled by voters in the state- Gingrich's favorability is 25/54 and he trails Obama 47-39 while Palin's favorability is 33/61 and she trails Obama 50-39. Obama's looking at a landslide in Pennsylvania and everywhere else for that matter if one of those folks were to somehow snag the nomination.
Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:

Mike Huckabee 37/43/20 (-6)
Mitt Romney 31/41/27 (-10)
Rick Santorum 37/47/18 (-10)
Sarah Palin 33/61/7 (-28)
Newt Gingrich 25/54/21 (-29)

Head-to-Head: (Obama/Candidate/Undecided)

Mitt Romney 42/43/15 (+1)
Mike Huckabee 45/44/11 (-1)
Rick Santorum 45/43/12 (-2)
Newt Gingrich 47/39/14 (-8)
Sarah Palin 50/39/11 (-11)
PPP surveyed 593 Pennsylvania voters from April 7th to 10th. The survey’s margin oferror is +/-4.0%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

So is PPP no longer out to get Mitt?

Who said they were out to get Mitt?

Anyone specific or are you going to try and stick that on Romney supporters in general?

No Matt, it was never PPP. It was always CNN.

If you spent time over at Race42012, you'd know what I mean.
