Pennsylvania's Most Accurate Pollster says Romney up by 4... Pennsylvania.

Mitt Romney and Republican allies have suddenly poured more than $10 million into Pennsylvania to fund a late push by the presidential challenger. Two weeks ago, a poll by Susquehanna Polling and Research showed Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama by four points in the Keystone State, 49-45%. They are set to release the results of a new poll Sunday morning. Will they point t o a Romney win? (Note: a previous edition of this article incorrectly stated that the 49-45% Romney lead was this weeks poll).

In what could prove to be a brilliant campaign move, the Romney campaign hid details of a Sunday campaign appearance in Pennsylvania until after the Obama team released their final campaign schedule. Critics have been dismissing Susquehanna's tight polling for over a month based on little more than the fact that a Republican presidential candidate hasn't won Pennsylvania since the 1980s. George W. Bush came close, however, in both of his campaigns. Republicans also took the US Senate seat and Governor's mansion in 2010, despite Pat Toomey being called "unelectable" by the media.

If Romney wins Pennsylvania, the race is over.
