  1. Wow, the results are in!
    What a bogus Poll! Just like Hillary Clinton was way ahead of our President Trump..You people should be ashamed of yourselves…

  2. I am so sick and tired of these games PAGOP are playing. Get your shit together or you can all go home and stay there! You have a poll with names on it with people who are not running and people who are running like Bobby Lawrence that are not on the poll. Val get your team in line!

    1. Paul the author of this story works for the PAGOP and has Jeff Bartos on his friends list… Makes me wonder Does Val know about this?

      1. Bobby — Paul does not work for PA GOP. He worked for PA GOP last year, prior to Val becoming Chairman.

        1. Rob you are correct. My very deepest apologies for not checking with you before making my comments.

  3. Paul Engelkemier works for the Republican Party of PA. This Poll is as FAKE as they come.

    1. Again…Bobby — Paul does not work for PA GOP. He worked for PA GOP last year, prior to Val becoming Chairman.

    2. I’m going to guess that this lack of depth and discipline is probably why good ole Bobby isn’t included in the poll huh?

  4. Do you all know who Andrew Shecktor is? lol. If you did, you would understand how ridiculous this poll is. 24% of this poll is a joke, enough to put Mike Kelly or Lou Barletta ahead of Bartos. A 24% margin of error is pretty big, even for political polling in 2017.

    1. This poll is as fake as they come. Hey Bartos4Senate did you know that Paul Engelkemier works for the Republican Party of Pennsylvania as the Deputy Director of Communications?

      My name was not included in the poll. Wonder if Chairman Val is aware of this (at best) inaccurate and misleading poll? We will have to ask him on Thursday evening when you and I see him.

      1. My deepest apologies to the PAGOP and Chairman Val
        I should have checked with them to confirm the information that was on Paul’s Personal Page. The information that Paul still worked at the PAGOP is inaccurate.

        1. Bobby, I think you just proved why you should not be included in this poll. Best of luck.

    2. I beg your pardon.. I have been out in the field gathering support for 2 years and have over 150k supporters. I was effective in winning the delegate position in a 15 way race. I have worked for and with members of the Congress. My guess is this poll was somehow rigged in favor of Bartos, stealing votes from others. Oh well. No more fake than the MSM polls!

      1. A. Facebook/Twitter friends do not equal supporters. B. 150k supporters? In 2016 Clifford got 3.9% of the vote for Senate and that was 230k VOTES (not supporters). C. You 100% delegitimatize yourself by responding to comments on PoliticsPA and finally D. When replying to someone on this feed, click the reply button instead of posting a comment below the comment you mean to reply to. Besides that, all power and respect to you sir!

  5. WHY ISN’T JOE GALE INCLUDED IN THE POLL? RUMORE IS HE IS CONSIDERING RUNNING. AS THE LEADER OF THE GOP HE WILL BE THE CHOICE OF THE PEOPLE AND HE IS PROLIFE. I AM ALSO PROLIFE FOR JOE
