You may be right, but we'll see.

The questions is going to be how many dems stay home, and how many vote for Trump.

Say, you never did return to that other thread where I asked you a question about the need of Hillary Rodham Clinton's necessity to keep fundraising. I believe the question was:


If you believe that Mr. Trump will surely win the election, wouldn't it make sense for Ms. Clinton to continue to fundraise to purchase ads in swing states?


Or do you think that Ms. Clinton has a 'lock' on the election, which would indicate that further fund-raising is unnecessary?


I imagine that you simply forgot to go back to your earlier thread.
Okay...Can you give me a hint about which thread it is?

2. The approximately 60,000 net change in party registration from Democrats to GOP pales in comparison to the margin of victory for the Democrats in 2012 in PA (310,000 votes). Less than 1/5 of the margin.

Hopes run high.

13 of Pennsylvania's 17 sitting US Representatives are Republicans. And they didn't get there by Presidential Decree.

But today it still looks good for Hillary.

It's funny, all this talk about Democrats being the problem with Election Fraud, and here you have a string of people saying they changed their registration from R to D, simply to influence the outcome of the primaries, but they fully intended to vote R in the general.

It's not illegal, but it's a clear case of trying to sabatage the opposition, instead of focusing on your own solution. Typical Republican projection.

Republicans? Probably not.

But only about 42 - 44% of the population intends to vote for Hillary. That's alarmingly low for such a well known person. Bill came out of nowhere and got 43%.

The best hope for saving us all from Hillary and her greed is to tie things up so that no one gets 270 in November, and that doesn't look very likely. Might happen; Johnson is concentrating his efforts where he has some traction.
If it goes to The House, Hillary is out of the Pennsylvania running immediately.

Said thread, which you started, and asked why HRC was still fundraising, has apparently been deleted by the moderators.


However, you literally just now, in quoting me, quoted the question I had originally propounded in your deleted thread.


I shall ask it again. Again, it is in reference to your question wondering why Hillary Rodham Clinton was still fundraising.


My question: Do you think Donald John Trump will win the election? If 'yes', then does that not indicate that HRC is justified to continue her fundraising efforts, in order to purchase television/radio ads for swing states?


Or: Do you think that HRC is a 'lock' to win? If you think so, then it does appear that there is no need for her to spend time fund raising.

They got the reps because there are huge numbers of Dems in one place... Philadelphia.
At this point PA can barely be called a battleground.

I am a Pennsylvanian who follows state political trends.

Donald Trump has lost Pennsylvania.

Those are not state wide elected positions ... they are influenced by gerrymandering.

The trend in the Keystone State is leaning towards the Democrats. Two years ago, in an off-year election where the GOP usually does better, the three state Supreme Court up for election went to the Democrats ... all of them.

Our governor, Wolf, a Democrat, trounced the incumbent Republican governor Corbett two years ago. Our senior senator is a Democrat, while the junior senator Toomey is behind in the polls and running scared ... and refused to endorse Trump. Toomey even boycotted the GOP convention in Cleveland.

Hillary is far ahead of Donald here. She has nearly 10 times as many field offices in PA and 10 times the campaign funds to run commercials here. No major PA newspaper has endorsed Donald. Hillary's Rodham family is from the Scranton area and is popular there; I don't have to mention she dominates the four biggest cities here: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Erie.
