Right now it is game on in Pennsylvania as a new poll shows this battleground state is up for grabs.
More on that arm in a moment first let's take a closer look at Pennsylvania's economic situation.
The State's unemployment rate as of September is eight point 2% higher than the national average.
Average price for a gallon of gas three dollars and 66 cents the foreclosure rate one in every 1513.
Since April President Obama has visited Pennsylvania twice governor Romney nine times but his arrival in the state later today will make -- -- Now earlier we showed you this new poll from the Pittsburgh Tribune review it finds both men tied.
In that state compare that to the latest real clear politics average for Pennsylvania.
It has the president -- by just over four points.
-- it Kuwait's is that Washington corn.
Correspondent for the Allentown morning call -- what about this I mean that that new poll from the Pittsburgh paper.
Has a much tighter race than the average of all the polls from a real clear politics and -- -- -- the morning call actually released a poll this morning and we showed it three most of the other independent polls show -- around 345.
But -- a lot closer than is comfortable for the Obama campaign they did not want to be defending Pennsylvania and the final weekend.
But they either sending there have their closer and tomorrow Bill Clinton is going to be in Pennsylvania -- for different -- in Pennsylvania tomorrow.
Defending Obama and trying to ensure that the democratic leaning state -- -- democratic.
Kind of interest in meant that this president is relying on Bill Clinton -- to do that for him at this point in the campaign I mean they have been sort of for enemy is for a long time.
It's true and but 7% -- up Pennsylvania is that in 2008 during the primary.
Democratic voters want -- Hillary Clinton Hillary won the state during the primary.
Has a lot of left ever angst about that in Pennsylvania -- sending Bill Clinton and instead of Obama as a tactical move.
Bill Clinton is gonna reach out to those -- white blue collar voters that Obama has had a tough time reaching.
If it is 88 deep blue state traditionally but there -- a lot of working class you know blue collar voters who are very upset about the economic situation that can't help the president right.
It -- -- doesn't mean again that's why they're sending Bill Clinton and instead of -- Obama.
-- -- expected DNA incredibly well on the western part of the state he's expected to probably win most of the last most all of the sat there.
And so where this battle is really going to be five is in the southeastern part of -- -- and that's where you have Philadelphia and -- southeast suburbs.
Obama will win Philadelphia without a problem but if he suffered this -- Mitt -- coming today is coming to Bucks County.
It's an area that -- George W.
Bush almost one in 2000 -- are.
Came very close to being -- there and that's where Romney thinks he's gonna -- voters in Pennsylvania to beat Obama.
Do you think we could wake up on Wednesday morning and and learn of and welcome November surprise in Pennsylvania is that really even narrow the possibility.
Think that it is not impossible Eric -- and possible I don't think they're on the camp would be spending that time injuries are since we've seen.
I had them go up on the -- with all the major GOP super -- -- up on the -- this week they see an opening in Pennsylvania until I think it's probably gonna happen and probably not I think Obama how -- -- out I don't know two to three to four point.
Win in Pennsylvania but it's semi not impossible that we wake up and -- around anyway why Bill Clinton and not Joseph Biden.
That's a question Joseph Biden was supposed to come to Scranton last week that's his hometown on the storm sidelines that.
And so by and would've done some some of the stand but pennsylvanians love Bill Clinton they've always loved him they love his wife.
And he's the man he is a close there the one -- and then when when you wanna make yeah yeah final argument it's going to be interesting to see called it quits from the Allentown morning call thank you.
Thank you so much it's been nice to have Kobe on the.
