  •  PA-13: PPP polled this race (I got called) (4+ / 0-)

    PPP polled this race days ago.  Since there has been no public release of the poll results, I assume the poll was paid for by one of the candidates, possibly Daylin Leach.    You speculate above whether Leach has info showing that Brendan Boyle is his biggest challenger.  Leach could have a very current (this week) poll showing just that.

    If one drives around the half of the PA-13 District that is Northeast Philadelphia, one sees Brendan Boyle signs all over the place - and none for any of the 3 candidates from the Montgomery County half of the District.

    I continue to worry that geography alone could win this for Brendan Boyle.  Boyle will have Philadelphia County listed under this name on the ballots while the other 3 will have Montgomery County listed under their names.  For the half of the voters voting in Philadelphia, this could be a powerful edge to Boyle.  Boyle will also have Phila Dem party precinct captains and ward leaders pigeon-holing each voter as she or he walks into the half of the PA-13 precincts that are in Philadelphia.
