June Pa. Poll Shows Obama Leading Romney by 12 Points

Obama leads Romney 48-36 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.

Obama has the Heart and soul to do his best to this country and he has been doing and you can see from his face that he is working hard.Byt Republicans are doing all kinds of speed bumps and planning all kinds of conspiracy to make him feel like any other failed leaders in the world.This is a sin against humanity.Mitt Romney will go to bad by 12 noon since he brought in Gold cocoon , he can not work like Obama.He may act like one but in Real send he can not even fit to be Bank teller.He may deposit all the money in his account and blame God that he told to do so.

Jackshaw - Why would anyone take your comments seriously? You are unable to string a proper sentence together. Are you on the dole? That would be my guess.

To be fair, the ordering kiosks at Wawa are pretty spiffy.
