  1. We in Northumberland, Montour and Columbia don’t know who Lewis is… he lost a primary last year for senate…no chance he honestly won this poll


  3. We need Meuser to pass so Toohil can solidify NEPA vote in this district. Only way to beat one of these southern part of the district candidates.

  4. 17,342 responses? Andrew Lewis is truly the champion of vote bots and macros everywhere!

    1. Yikes, talk about a dumb strategy backfiring… it’s so obvious… PoliticsPA really should change their poll so desperate candidates have to do more than have a computer algorithm cast another vote every 5 seconds.

    2. Looks to me like at least two candidates organized to try and win this poll. Meuser’s “bots” as you put it only had a few votes less than Andrew’s. looks to me like Toohil would have won or gotten close if Meuser and Lewis didn’t try to take over the poll…

        1. Lewis, Meuser and Toohil all spending time on vote bots – and here I thought the GOP wanted to crack down on voter fraud

  5. You have to pay your dues and be in the trenches before you earn any Party nomination, especially for a top ballot office. Lewis doesn’t qualify.

    1. Didn’t we just elect Donald Trump with his Pennsylvania victory hinging on gains in this district and a couple others? Voters are sick of the insiders that failed to repeal Obamacare or get anything else done. We are in the age of the political outsider.

  6. Andrew Lewis personifies the future of the Republican Party. For too long, current elected officials and stakeholders of the smoke-filled backrooms have dominated the political scene here in Pennsylvania. It is refreshing to see a young businessman with bonafide conservative credentials win this poll. I hope he runs and wins.

  7. Shows you what regional curiosities like Toohil and Bloom, and rich fat cats who run for every office like Meuser, really bring to the table: not a whole lot of anything.

    Grassroots candidates like Andrew Lewis, businessman and veteran, are the future of the GOP! Lou Barletta would be proud to have him as his successor.

    1. Do you really believe your own bologna ? These negatives on Meuser r baseless..and untrue.. sadly they seem to becoming from the minions of the “future of the party” . Let’s get real and start winning rather than wineing

  • Understanding that basic education funding should/will be first, what should be the next highest priority for the General Assembly?

    • Economic Development (14%)
    • Higher Education (8%)
