Is Pennsylvania No Longer a Swing State?

Alex Roarty notes that "evidence is mounting" that Pennsylvania isn't a top target for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

"Understanding why the GOP candidate might be skeptical about Pennsylvania isn't difficult. A Republican presidential nominee hasn't triumphed there since George H.W. Bush in 1988, and, as mentioned, Obama won easily there four years ago despite a heavy investment of time and money from the McCain campaign. The state has more than a million more registered Democrats than Republicans, and an early May poll from Quinnipiac University found the president leading over Romney 47% to 39%."

Meanwhile, First Read moves the Keystone state from "Toss Up" to "Lean Dem."
