CAMPAIGN 2012

Obama Tied With Romney, Santorum in Pennsylvania

But while Obama's numbers have suffered over the past six weeks, Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., has held steady. Now, 48 percent approve of the job he is doing, while just 29 percent disapprove. Even Republicans are split on Casey's performance: 39 percent approve and 39 percent disapprove. More voters (47 percent) would vote for Casey against a generic Republican opponent (35 percent), and a plurality (47 percent) says he deserves to be re-elected, while just 33 percent of voters say he does not. Both parties in Congress are deeply unpopular in the Keystone State, according to the poll. Congressional Democrats and Republicans earn a woeful 28-percent approval rating among Pennsylvania voters, and more than two-thirds of voters disapprove of each party. The Quinnipiac poll was conducted July 25-31. The poll surveyed 1,358 registered voters, for a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percent. There were 532 Republicans, for a margin of error of +/- 4.3 percent.
