I'm evaluating job possibilities - anybody here commute from Yardley/Morrisville area to King of Prussia daily? I would get on the turnpike at Rt 1 Bensalem and exit near the KOP mall. Business hours are 8-5. I would like to keep travel time to one hour max each way. Are you routinely stuck in traffic for longer than one hour?

It's a pretty straightforward commute but keep in mind you will be going with the herd on the Turnpike, especially at the times you'll be leaving so I highly doubt you'll ever be able to make that commute in an hour unless you're able to do it at off-peak times. If you look on Google Maps traffic information you'll see that around 7AM the westbound Turnpike starts bunching up around Willow Grove and Fort Washington, and around 5PM it bunches up eastbound around Norristown and 476. So all in all, I think it would be a pretty lousy commute.

It's not the best commute when theres traffic, but on a clear day it's not bad .. I live in Yardley and go to KOP often for clients, I'd say on average if I leave after rush hour it takes me about 40 minutes. If I hit traffic however it can be upwards of an hour.
