    But for reference

    2010:
    Onorato: 1,814,788, Corbett: 2,172,763
    Sestak: 1,948,716,  Toomey: 2,028,945
    2008
    Obama: 3,276,363,  McCain: 2,655,885
    2006:
    Rendell: 2,470,517,  Swann: 1,622,135
    Casey: 2,392,984, Santorum: 1,684,778
    2004:
    Kerry: 2,938,095,  GWB: 2,793,847
    2000:
    Gore: 2,485,967,  GWB: 2,281,127

    If anything, the GOP held tough in PA in 2008 but a surge of new voters gave Obama substantial margins.  So I tend to think the 2008 to 2010 electorate on the GOP was probably the same to slightly more motivated, whereas the Dem electorate was asleep at the wheel.
