Obama Gains on Clinton in Pennsylvania

Hillary Clinton’s lead over Barack Obama is narrowing in Pennsylvania, a new Quinnipiac poll shows. She leads 50 – 44, compared to 50-41 in a poll released less than a week ago (the margin of error 2.7 is percent).

Obama has gained among black voters, white voters, men and voters under the age of 45, as well as among voters who rank the economy (49 – 45, from 53 – 39) as the most important issue facing the nation. He leads among voters who say the same about Iraq (51 – 44).

Clinton leads Obama, however by a significant margin (62 – 32) among voters who said health care was their top priority.

An American Research Group poll released yesterday showed the two candidates tied, 45-45.
