Why Tom Smith’s campaign is a sign of trouble for Obama in Pennsylvania


By Kevin “Coach” Collins

During the lead up to the Senate vote on Obamacare all eyes were on a few rare Democrats who Pro-Lifers hoped would stand up against the Democrats’ culture of death and vote NO because of the sections mandating faith based hospitals to commit abortions.

Pennsylvania Democrat Senator and putative Catholic Bob Casey was one of those quislings who talked a good game about being as pro-life but ultimately became the 60th and decisive vote to pass Obamacare. By doing this Casey forced his Church, the Roman Catholic Church, to face either closing its hospitals or knuckling under and committing abortions.  

In 2006 Casey had cruised to a smashing 18 point victory over a genuine pro-life lion and fellow Catholic Rick Santorum a two term Republican incumbent. In a victory that large there are always a number of reasons to point to but Casey’s standing as his father Bob Casey senior’s son ( a popular pro-lifer) was a large factor in his win. Pro-life Pennsylvanians voted for Casey “secure” in the belief that they could vote for him without losing a fighter their cause.

Now six years later Bob Casey has a 44% pro-life rating and he will be called to account for what he has done.

 Enter Tom Smith his Republican challenger. Democrat skewed polls aside a new survey of likely voters has Smith trailing Casey by just  49/42  justb outside the MoE. Smith has improved on Santorum’s margin by 11 points.  Why? 

At 53% the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has the second highest percentage of Catholics in the nation. The Catholic Church is in an all-out battle with Barack Obama over Obamacare’s abortion mandate. Both of these factors will join with Obama’s war on coal and the photo ID to vote  law which has been on again off again that at this point has eaten through six months of the Democrats’ irreplaceable time to register their people.   

With Tom Smith closing on Casey, his own war on the Catholic Church and the Coal Industry, how comfortable can Barack Obama be about his chances in Pennsylvania?
