Romney rising in Pennsylvania

A new Franklin & Marshall College poll shows that Mitt Romney has shaved off 13% of Rick Santorum's lead in PA in one month.


1. Rick Santorum 30%

2. Mitt Romney 28%

3. Ron Paul 9%

4. Newt Gingrich 6%

Meanwhile, Santorum continues to sport higher favorable ratings than Romney, but not by much (+28% vs. +21%, respectively).

So what's going on in PA?

It's starting to look like other Midwestern states where Santorum briefly held a big lead (Ohio, Michigan) only to see Romney whittle it down and ultimately win.

Further, Mitt will be able to kill Rick financially in the state, and who really thinks a 2% Santorum lead can stand up against Restore Our Future and all the organizational might of the Romney campaign?
