Governor Ed Rendell leads Lynn Swann among Eagles fans 57 - 26, but Swann leads Rendell among Steelers fans, 50 - 36.Anyone have the phone number for Franco Harris?
He was all over the Kerry campaign introducing him at every rally in the 'Burgh:
(While the woman fussing with his collar certainly isn't me, I did put a Kerry button on Franco at this CMU rally as well as at the one at Market Square.)
I hope that he'll be doing the same for Rendell.
Of course, it should be said that Steelers Country extends into the conservative T and that the Eagles Microworld is pretty much just Philly which is Rendell's stomping ground so I don't know if this poll proves anything.
SIDE NOTE: After the Steelers won the Super Bowl much of the non-Pittsburgh left half of the blogosphere went wild denouncing the Steelers as the "Diebold Steelers" and "Haliburton Steelers" due to their fears that a Steelers win would help Swann (and because CondiLiar Rice was in the stands cheering them on). I thought that their fears were a little crazy at the time...
