as you can read in Poll: Obama widens lead in Pennsylvania, the poll shows a 2-point improvement in the results from Sept 9-12 as compared to the previous poll taken Aug 21-23.
A few key takeaways
top line 50-39 as compared to 51-42.
According to article, margin is similar to what it was at this point in 2008 when Obama beat McCain ins-tate by 11.5 points
A companion Inquirer New Jersey Poll, also taken Sept. 9-12, showed Obama ahead by 14 points, 51-37.Important to note that the margin is probably too large to be affected by the attempted voter suppression, even if Pennsylvania Supreme Court does not overturn or at least suspend the new picture-id requirement.
The president's current standing is largely built on his overwhelming backing in the Philadelphia television market, home to more than 40 percent of the state's voters. That offsets support for Romney in the more conservative Pittsburgh market and some other areas.
Statewide, Obama was ahead among all age groups, among both men and women, among those with college education and those without.
He was marginally ahead among white voters, 46-43, and overwhelmingly ahead among black voters, 93-3.
Obama has a 56-40 positive approval rating, while Romney is slightly upside-down at 48-46 (and that is an improvement from the previous poll).
