Posted April 11, 2008 at 4:04pm

Hillary Clinton has a 47 percent to 43 percent lead over Barack Obama in Pennsylvania with 10 percent undecided, according to a Newsmax/Zogby poll conducted April 9-10. The margin of error is 3,2 percent. The narrowness of the race in this poll is consistent with most other recent surveys. Clinton runs strongly with the more conservative voters in western Pennsylvania while Obama’s edge is in the east, including Philadelphia. Fifty-three percent of likely Democratic voters named the economy as the top issue while 32 percent cited Iraq.
