Is Pennsylvania no longer a swing state?

Although Mitt Romney and Republican super PACs poured $10 million into the state in the closing week of the campaign, the election result was the same as in every presidential contest since 1992 – a Democratic win.

“Six in a row is not just a fluke; it is part of a changing political environment,” said Chris Borick, a political scientist and pollster at Muhlenberg College. …

Pollster G. Terry Madonna of Franklin and Marshall College said he would not write off Pennsylvania as a battleground state. “We could become a battleground under the right circumstances,” he said. “It is not completely out of the question. . . . But history is not on [the Republicans’] side.” [cont.]
