PA is basically conservative /moderate democrat. I can't see it going Republican for the general, particularly with the worsening economy here. I don't see it as a runaway though. Last election was close, but we had two Republican senators at the time. Now we've got one and the Republicans consider him a RINO. There is definitely an increase in Democratic registration.
The unempolyment rate in Pennsylvania is below the current national average of 5%. Its not a state that is in the hot seat when it comes to the economy currently.

Democratic registration has increased, but these are Democrats who are more conservative politically and are not against crossing party lines and voting for a Republican. They gave the state to Reagan and Bush Sr. in the 80s. The current polling shows they may very well vote for McCain if the Democratic nominee is Obama.

Maine has two Republican Senators, but its not about to go red and is certainly not a battleground state for November 2008.

I won't be calling Texas anytime soon



I will say this

cauci have been good to Barack Hussien
that system favors him

I would be partying with the young things
over the blue hairs

but, more importantly
the Dems in Texas have a crazy ass weighted delegate thing
where the legal brown American voters that trend for Hillary will not get as many delegates as other people.

I've read that PA has been going more Democratic lately, strongbow, so there's a lot of theories out there.

I think what I specifically read was that the suburbs, which were typically strong for the GOP, have been moving Dem. My county follows this trend.

I'm saying we didn't go Republican when we had two Republican senators and there is a shift now even more toward Democrat. The unemployment rate does not take into account the underemployed rate, of people working for less now than they did a few years ago. Trust me, it's a factor.

What I meant to say was that most Democrats in the state in general tend to be more conservative politically, I'm not sure about newly registered Democrats specifically.

Simply looking at election results from the past several decades and party identification, plus how many states have Democrats that would rally around a pro-life Democrat for Governor, you can tell that Democrats in PA on average are more conservative than those further North or out West.

Hell Andrea Mitchell just mentioned to Chris Matthews that Democrats in Pennsylvania are a different breed.

But PA is moving in the Dem direction, that's the thing. The economy is beginning to feel the drag here, and people are going Dem as a result.

You keep bringing up the abortion issue, but it's honestly not as big of an issue as you think here.
