Clinton and Obama running tight race in PA

 The race appears to be narrowing in Pennsylvania.
The race appears to be narrowing in Pennsylvania.

(CNN)- It is still unclear how much, if any damage was done to Sen. Barack Obama's presidential run as a result of his 'bitter' comments last week, but a CNN poll of poll released Wednesday suggests the affects in Pennsylvania appear to be minimal.

The latest CNN poll of polls - which combines the results of four surveys taken between April 8 and April 14 - shows Hillary Clinton leading Barack Obama in Pennsylvania by 5 points with 47 percent to his 42 percent.

Because a some of the surveys were conducted before Obama's comments on some rural voters were reported, the average does not fully account for any potential fallout.

The four surveys include the Franklin and Marshall poll conducted April 8 through 13, the LA Times/Bloomberg poll conducted April 10 through 14, the Quinnipiac Poll conducted April 9 through 13, and the Zogby poll conducted April 9 and 10.

Over the past weeks, polls have fluctuated dramatically, but 11 percent of those questioned remain undecided ahead of Tuesday's primary in Pennsylvania.

Throughout the primary season, Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean has said these polls are meaningless until after Labor Day.

    I will be bitter if she wins, but I know she will ultimately lose, it is just that she is like a chigger – serves no purpose but to drive you nuts.

    The true elitist, In this race is Billary. When her and fat cat hubby were in the white house she was orderd to turn over some papers to the court. What she said to them is

    "I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers.
    We are the president."

    Are you going to tell me that is not eitist? Give me a break!!!!

    Obama is spending millions and millions of dollars to win PA . . . he is advertising and selling himself just like a product – of course he's going to close in on Hillary, especially when you can't get through an hour without seeing his face . . . it's a controlling mechanism.

    She will needs to win by more then 20 points and that will not happen. This is just a smoke screen and out to hurt the demorcratic party. The Clintons a very mean people, you don't do what they say, well you will pay. I wish the tax payers in New York state would wake up and vote her out as well.
