Information on three polls crossed my screen the past few days.
In case you missed it, today Quinnipiac University released a new poll of Pennsylvania voters that placed President Obama six points up over Mitt Romney in the Commonwealth. Only 35 percent of Pennsylvanians viewed Romney favorably, while 42 percent of Pennsylvanians have an unfavorable view of Romney. Mitt Romney's top Pennsylvania endorser, Tom Corbett, fares even worse. Only 36 percent of Pennsylvanians approve of Tom Corbett's job performance while 47 percent disapprove, making Tom Corbett one of America's least popular governors. With numbers like that, it's no wonder that even Mitt Romney doesn't think he can win here: http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/gop-state-chair-romney-doesnt-think-he-can
PoliticsPA has dueling polling memos in the 6th Congressional district. Incumbent Rep. Gerlach's poll shows he has good name recognition.

As might be expected, Meehan has a significant lead among potential voters. But when they are told some of his positions, especially those on Medicare and women's health issues.
