Swann Campaign Showing Life
However, the latest Rasmussen Reports Poll (http://www.blackpolicy.org/black-races.php?s=PA) shows some life in the Swann campaign. This poll has incumbent Governor Ed Rendell up only 10 points compared to the 13 point bulge he held just 3 weeks ago and the 24 point gap he opened up in June according to a Quinnipiac poll. The poll also shows the former Pittsburgh Steeler Wide Receiver with a favorable rating of 59%, but Governor Rendell tops that favored by 62%.
The bigger problem for the Swann effort may be the level of reticence he is receiving from the party. Only 67% of Republicans in the poll said they plan to vote for the Hall of Famer a Reticence Level of 33%, while Governor Rendell is drawing support from 73% of Democrats.
