In the comment thread to a recent post, our reader Lisa reports that she
. . . just had an Obama zombie knock at my door here in Bethlehem, Pa. Strange because this is pretty solid Obama territory and they shouldn’t have to do that. She didn’t hang around long because most people ran her off.
Do wonder what Obama’s internals are showing for the Keystone State. You only campaign workers knocking on doors in states where you’re behind or where your lead isn’t solid.
And a recent poll showing a dead heat in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes and the state that hasn’t voted Republican since the Des Moines Register last endoresed the Republican presidential nominee.

UP-UPDATE: We’re not the only blog to wonder if these two states are in play. Over at HotAir, Allahpundit writes:
There’s no way [Team Obama would] be buying ads in Minnesota with money that could be better spent trying to win Florida or Virginia unless they really felt they needed to, right? And if we’re suddenly seeing enough movement towards Romney in the midwest and Rust Belt to make Minnesota and Pennsylvania kinda sorta competitive, then what’s going on in Wisconsin and Ohio, where Team Mitt is pouring in time and money? You already know what Rasmussen says about the latter; he also had the former tied as of a few days ago, but his is the only poll of Wisconsin in the past 12 days. Note to pollsters: Time to fix that, ASAP.
