(CNN) - New polls out Wednesday show Barack Obama is leading in two Northeastern states - one of which will likely play a key role in deciding the next President of the United States.
A Franklin & Marshall poll out of Pennsylvania shows the Illinois senator leads McCain by eight points (44-36 percent) among registered voters, while a Quinnipiac poll of likely voters in New Jersey puts Obama up by 10 there. The Pennsylvania poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points, while the New Jersey poll's margin or error is plus or minus 2.6 points.
Pennsylvania is a perennial battleground state and will be heavily contested by both candidates this fall. In 2004, John Kerry carried it by less than 200,000 votes. New Jersey may be a safer bet for Obama - the state hasn't voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 1988.
You republicans & Hellary supporters obviously take pride in being ignorant.
You don't say! I bet they still "cling to their guns and religion"; ever thou, they are not as "bitter"....................................
Black and White yes we can
American for CHANGE
Interesting... McCain has had the entire week to himself and can't muster much support.
Do yourself a favor; see the movie "OBSESSION".

It answered my questions as I sure it will yours!
CNN is so biased in Obama's favor I don't believe any of the polls they use and neither should anyone else. If it were the other way around do you think they would be blaring McCain's leads? And some polls say McCain is leading Obama or neck-in-neck. Why isn't CNN publishing those polls?
Of course Obama is up in NJ, who could vote for four/eight more years of bumbling around with our country irresponsibly.
Question: Did y'all see who helped calm down the Russians...The French President did, thanks dude!
Who do think France would rather deal with McCain or Obama? I remember the Europe trip, I would say... Obama!
Why are you idiot Obama supporters so happy to hear this? Have you forgotten that the election is held in NOVEMBER, NOT AUGUST.
I HOPE ALL YOU OBAMA SUPPORTERS GET WANT YOU WANT AND HE GETS ELECTED....THEN YOU WILL REALLY SEE HOW BAD OFF WE CAN REALLY BE AND YOU'LL HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELF.....WAY TO GO OBAMA SUPPORTERS!!!!!
GO OBAMA!!!!! POUND THAT OLD FART WARMONGER!! OBAMA YOU ARE "THE ONE" THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! Obama is leading in states that Kerry won. Thanks for pointing that out CNN...

Once the younger population following Obama goes back to school later this month, they will start forgetting and the numbers will drop.
Would someone who supports Obama, actually works AND pays taxes please explain to me why? His programs all point to huge increases in socialist-style government spending that can only be supported by tremendous increases in tax revenue. And since democrats don't understand that lowering the tax rates actually increases revenue, then you know what's going to happen if BO wins.........
Yes we can!!! Please lets unite......McCain is not the answer we need we all know that!!!
DADDYEXPERIENCE IN WAR should have no march not in Arizona.
The Pennsylvanians went for Kerry last time, but he did not win the Presidency. NJ has always been dem country – bunch of left wing liberals there.

What in the name of common sense does the Senator's vacation have to do with the Russian/Gorgian conflict. Hello, he's not president now....and by the way neither is McCain (he's the Gorgian guy). It's an issue that Bush should address and not by sabre rattling.
Why don't you go put a cold pack on your head so your senses can be revived.
Obama is actually down in these polls as it is likely voters that are reported. He is only up by 5 in Pennsylvania, the lowest poll in a long time. Nothing like reporting the real numbers and not just propaganda CNN? Oh right it's CNN.
I too say that all American's should redouble there efforts to make sure that the country is headed in a new direction. Please donate to the Obama campaign–NOW!
New Jersey is for Obama
