Good News Out of PA

After casting my ballot for Mitt Romney, I tuned into Julie Mason’s The Press Pool on Sirius XM during my three hour trek back to Maryland. : Mason’s guest was Pittsburgh-Tribune Review staff writer and editorial page columnist Salena Zito, who detailed how Romney could win Pennsylvania tonight. : One indicator was Romney’s rally in Bucks County, which drew 30,000 people. : She aptly noted how this doesn’t happen in the collar counties around Philadelphia — especially for a Republican candidate. : Furthermore, out of 1200 Democratic voters polled across the county, Zito found that they feel disillusioned, abandoned, and condescended to by their fellow party members making the decisions in Washington. : Thus, they’re leaning for Romney.

While the Tea Party insurgency and women helped: Republicans capture the most House seats since 1948 during the 2010 elections — Zito noted that disenchanted Democrats also played an integral role in the GOP retaking the House two years ago.

Bucks County is the most populous of the collar counties a strong lead could determine how PA will go tonight.
