Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Says Presidential Race Tied in PA

Pennsylvania’s GOP chairman, Rob Gleason, says that the presidential race is tied in the Keystone State. On Thursday, the Pennsylvania Republican Party released a poll of 800 voters that indicates the presidential race is essentially tied in PA. The polls shows that President Obama holds a 48-47 lead over Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

Gleason, apparently sensing some skepticism from reporters who have not seen the poll, added “I would not try to B.S. you on this.”

Most polls have shown Obama holding a lead in Pennsylvania.  A recent Philadelphia Inquirer poll put that lead at 11 percentage points, a notion Gleason dismissed as “ridiculous.” [Daily News]
