So we have the latest Susquehanna poll, which has Obama and Romney tied at 47. Get ready for Chuck Todd/Jake Tapper (as well as the obvious Malkin/Redstate crowd) to start talking this up.
I just wanted to give forewarning about this before folks here started getting heart attacks. These are the same GOP clowns who had Romney up 4 a couple of weeks ago. I don't see reason to take this seriously.

@Taniel, one of my favorite campaign tweeters, put it nicely:

Susquehanna only pollster to have ever found Romney up in Penn. They had Obama up 2% at his mid-Sept height. Best they can do now is a tie?
And, for good measure, here are a couple of tweets from Nate Cohn (@electionate):
The new Susquehanna poll in PA represents a 4 pt improvement for Obama since their last poll, when Romney led by 4

Susquehanna also showed O leading by 2 b4 the first debate. Regardless of whether it's right, the poll isn't evidence of movement.

10:38 AM PT: A little late, but if you want to see the piece of crap, here's the link:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
