Trump - Pennsylvania (200x200)Pennsylvania could hold key to Trump victory in November

This is not 2012 or even 2008. Donald Trump has dramatically changed not just the Republican Party, but the entire political process. By gathering support from Rust Belt states fed up with bad trade deals and outsourced jobs, Trump may be edging toward a win in November, proving no state is safe simply by their political history.

Take Pennsylvania, which from 2008 to 2012 was a decidedly blue state, but this year Trump has turned it into a swing state. The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows Trump is only one point behind Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania, 42 to 41 percent, as voters prefer Trump’s integrity consistently.


Consider this. If Mitt Romney had won the 67 electoral votes from Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, he would have had the 270 votes needed to secure his spot as president. […]

That puts Trump in a better position than anyone thinks. It completely discounts the prominence of traditional “must win” states for Republicans such as Virginia, Nevada, Colorado and New Hampshire.

Suddenly, Pennsylvania is extremely relevant. Without it, a Democrat’s path to victory in the electoral college is very much in question.

Luckily for Trump solidifying support in this state might be easier than ever, as Clinton’s own record is finally working against her.


In the Quinnipiac poll, voters in both Pennsylvania and Ohio say Trump would be better at creating jobs, 52 to 39 percent. Those numbers are devastating for Clinton. If Trump can successfully portray Clinton has been a driving force in taking jobs out of Pennsylvania and Ohio, November could tilt to Trump’s favor.

All Trump must do is capitalize on Clinton’s trade record. (Read More)
