#rsrh On the Matter of Pennsylvania.

Both Vodkapundit and AoSHQ are weighing in the apparent news that Pennsylvania is getting farther and farther away from the Democrats.  I bring this up not because I disagree with that assessment, but because I wanted to point something out: individual state assessments do not exist in a vacuum.  It is very difficult to envision a situation where PA is tilting to the Republicans, but FL, NC, & VA are still in play’ for that matter, it is impossible to envision a situation where PA is truly in play and IA, NH, MI, OH, & WI are not.

This does not mean that the GOP candidate is a shoo-in.  It does mean that the predictions of pundits who are relying too heavily on demographic trends should probably be taken with a grain of salt.  Or the whole shaker.

    Pennsylvania and New Jersey– I’ll believe they’ll go red in a Presidential election when it happens and not a microsecond before. How much time and money did McCain/Palin waste in PA?

      True, but PA won’t be run by Fast Eddie Rendell this go-round. A Republican executive and legislature is simply not going to accommodate a Democratic President looking for free campaign slots.
