GOP Eyes Pennsylvania Polling Gaps with 5-Plus Weeks to Go

CAMP HILL, Pa. (AP) -- The state Republican Party is getting a break from a drumbeat of bad news from pollsters about the chances of Pennsylvania's top-of-the-ticket GOP candidates in the election, less than six weeks away.
Presidential nominee Mitt Romney attended events in southeastern Pennsylvania on Friday, his first appearance in the state since July. The state party released a TV ad attacking President Barack Obama. And a couple hundred members gathered in suburban Harrisburg, where they heard pep talks from Gov. Tom Corbett and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Muhlenburg College pollster Christopher Borick says it's the exception when a trailing candidate turns things around in a few weeks.
But Allegheny County Republican Party Chairman Jim Roddey says polls are less important than which party excels at motivating people to vote.
