hillary-clinton-happyHillary Clinton is being powered by the Philadelphia suburbs.

That’s the conclusion of the latest Bloomberg Poll, which finds Clinton at 51% and Donald Trump at 42% in the commonwealth.

In a four-way race Clinton’s lead stands at nine points, 48% to 39%. Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein secured 6% and 2% respectively.

This survey was weighted towards the Philly suburban counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery. Women in these counties prefer Clinton by a 67% to 24% margin.


The Democratic nominee is approaching the break-even point in the favorable/unfavorable splits. She is currently at 48/51 throughout the state and 56/42 in the suburbs.

Trump, on the other hand, scores a 40/58 split in PA and a 28/70 split in SEPA.

  1. Why won’t the Democrats defend the hard working citizens who support them and the lazy cry babies who want something without earning it These sorry individuals believe it is owed to them. This is like those who feel sorry for alcoholics and drug abusers and still give them money for support which they go out and buy for their habit.

  2. If you asked everybody in Elk County if Trump should be allowed to date their daughter, the answer would be NO. Same as my son. But yet these idiots want to vote for them.

  3. American revolutionary and super patriot Donald J Trump will be busy strafing Crooked Hillary with nukes in the next few weeks! How can she possibly survive his onslaught? She’s finished! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!!

  4. I like the one that states hc has the right temperament to be president….guess so…she doesn’t care how many blowjobs her husband gets from other woman as long as she’s not doing the humming…
