Obama Holds Slim Lead Over Republicans in Pennsylvania

Democrats favor the current winner-take-all system by a wide margin, 63 percent to 30 percent. Republicans are split, with 44 percent favoring the current system, and 48 percent supporting the GOP-backed proposal in the legislature. Meanwhile, Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., continues to run stronger than his party's standard-bearer, as he did in late July. Casey's approval rating remains positive: 46 percent of voters approve of his job performance, while just 30 percent disapprove. Casey leads a generic Republican, 50 percent to 31 percent. And a 48-percent plurality feels that Casey deserves to be reelected, while only 31 percent think he does not. The Quinnipiac poll was conducted Sept. 21-26, surveying 1,370 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 2.7 percent.
