Hope Fatigue in Pennsylvania?
Posted on Apr 14, 2008
A new poll shows Hillary Clinton way out ahead in Pennsylvania, thanks in part to the 23 percent of respondents who said Barack Obama’s saturation advertising is turning them off. The Obama campaign is currently spending more per week on ads in Pennsylvania than any other candidate ever has spent.
A new American Research Group poll in Pennsylvania shows Sen. Hillary Clinton has regained and increased her lead over Sen. Barack Obama, 57% to 37%. The previous ARG poll actually had the race tied at 45%, making this a huge swing for Clinton in just a week.
Key finding: “23% of likely primary voters say that excessive exposure to Obama’s advertising is causing them to support Clinton. This compares to 19% of likely primary voters in Ohio who said that excessive exposure to Obama’s advertising in that state caused them to support Clinton.”
