Can Obama win such a key state with many 'typical White people' and many more who 'cling to their guns and religion'?

I doubt it. Many people in the state are still echoing the statements you have above, and many of them made their decision to vote in Hillary Clinton, instead of Barack, in the strong Republican areas of the state. Many of these Democratic voters are now sliding over to the McCain campaign based on experience of both candidates (Remember when some of the Democrats thought Hillary was a better candidate for Commander-In-Chief? They aren't voting for Barack).

In the end, Obama will win Philadelphia, Centre County, Union County, Harrisburg, Erie, Pittsburgh, and Scranton, but not have enough to balance McCain's power with Williamsport, The entire Rural part of the state, the Poconos region, and Western Pennsylvania.

I know a a few states that vote for Kerry in 2004 will go for McCain this time around, Michigan because obama did not wanted to have a election there that counts. And Pennsylvania which is my home state. Because he lost the democrat election here. This state has many Moderate Reagan Democrats in it. This should be a very close race. Its like my home town of Philadelphia vs the rest of the state. I think this time McCain should win because allot of democrats will not vote this election or vote McCain. So I may put this state in McCain column. The west coast states could also go for McCain Oregon and Washington could very well go for McCain. And even california may be a lot closer for a change do to Arnold Arnold schwarzenegger and Arizona is next to it. The Great lakes states and midwest state execept for Michigan should go for Obama. Also Maybe McCain can stole one or two states in New England too. But it will be hard due to Ted Kennedy and John Kerry because they both are from there. But, I can New Jersey or New York going for McCain as well. New York is where Hillary is from and New Jersey is a back and forth state, although latey it is a democrat state.. But why do I care I going to vote independent anyhow. I just find the stats are interesting. I have a feeling McCain will get at least 3 states that voted for Kerry last time. And Obama my pick up some other small states in the mid west or Great plains area that Bush picked up last time. But it will not be enough to beat McCain due to the ones Obama turns over.

I think the question should be can Mccain win Penn. Obama has a big lead in Pen and Obama could still win without it. Mccain needs 3 out of 3 swing states Michigan, Ohio, and Penn to even have a shot and he still might not win getting just 3. When one looks at the map state by state Mccain is going to have problems. But there is still a lot of time.

“I haven’t seen you in these parts,” the barkeep said, sidling over to where I sat. “Name’s Bao.” He stated it exuberantly, as if low-down of his exploits were shared by settlers about multitudinous a fire in Aeternum.
 
 
He waved to a expressionless keg apart from us, and I returned his indication with a nod. He filled a eyeglasses and slid it to me across the stained red wood of the excluding in the vanguard continuing.
 
 
“As a betting chains, I’d be ready to wager a fair bit of silver you’re in Ebonscale Reach for the purpose more than the swig and sights,” he said, eyes glancing from the sword sheathed on my hip to the bow slung across my back.
