Trump Snaps Streak, Carries Pennsylvania

donald-trumpPick your jaws up off the floor, Donald Trump has won the White House and Pennsylvania was a crucial part of his electoral path.

The Keystone State was generally considered to be leaning Democratic and had gone blue for six straight elections.

According to the RealClearPolitics average, Trump never led Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania.

Nonetheless, Trump captured 2,890,633 votes (48.84%) while Clinton received 2,817,409 votes (47.60%).

Will have more analysis of the results in the days to come but it’s worth pointing out some significant shifts in the commonwealth’s electoral landscape.

Three counties: Erie, Luzerne and Northampton switched from Obama to Trump. There was also only county, Chester, that went from Romney to Clinton.

The full numbers in PA will be fascinating to unpack.

  1. Hillary is not to be blamed. She clearly won the debates and presented programs that were substantive whether you liked them or not. Trump won in spite of himself because the voters saw changes that they did not like but were a reality–global economies affecting pay, climate change affecting lifestyles and soaring healthcare costs among many issues. The Democratic Party became too entrenched in insider politics by not looking for a fresh face to go against candidates like Toomey and lost with an insider like McGinty. Dems need to do a lot of taking stock. A lot of it.

  2. Hey DJT I have balls of brass, and I’ve driven taxi in the toughest hoods on both the East and West Coast when I was in my 20’s. I am not afraid to go in any hood in any city, you got that. I will go in any time of day or night. While you live in whitetopia out there in the suburbs somewhere as a computer commando and call people cowards, I’ve done more living in my 60 years than you have done in your whole life, got it? So get off my back punk and don’t start crap okay? because I don’t need my brass balls busted. If you want, go ahead and post your e-mail or phone number pussy and I’ll get in touch with you so we can meet face to face and you can show me what a tough guy you really are, how does that sound pussy?

  3. Just remember this, everyone: Hillary Clinton GOT MORE VOTES nationwide. More people wanted Hillary for a leader than wanted Trump and old white guys aren’t going to be the center of the universe much longer.

  4. Hey Governor it’s obvious your working with Republicans WE LOST 3 SENATE SEATS AND 4 HOUSE seats you Dope!!! It’s pretty much known statewide you don’t work with your own party.

  5. Yes, Tim, you ARE a RACIST. Your every word drips it. A HATER. You need anger management classes. I challenged you as a coward and in reply you (Mr. Brave Guy) call me a punk and then plan to send in the FBI and US Marshalls, instead of going to the inner city yourself. How big a coward you are!!! All mouth, and no balls.

  6. To the Trump people – congratulations. To the Clinton people – a loss sucks but I ask you to look forward. We as a nation must accept the result and come together. You’ll have a chance in 4 years to decide the direction of our nation once again. Just be positive.

  7. What a great job by the “legendary”PA pollster and “material girl” MADONNA. What a joke has this creepy clown ever been right about anything? Oh, and that includes that realistic shade that he chooses for the toupee.REALLY?

  8. Wonder what Val DiGigorio has to say about his beloved Chester County switching to Dems? This will note bode well for him in the chairman race.

  9. Chester finally turned. The RSC’s strategy to snub the SE and wreck GOP chances of winning state offices at large has finally been fully cemented.

  10. Hate to say it, Tim, because he was. One of our boys and we made a lot of money off him, but the U.S. Gun epidemic started with Ronald Reagan importing cheap guns from Baltic countries in order to break away from the evil empire. The truth can be told because we didn’t get any of that action. We were too busy importing cocaine from the contras.

  11. DJT, now that Obama is heading out, where are all the brutha’s going to get their guns to kill each other? Obama flooded the inner cities with crates of guns to keep the gang bangers and their drug trade flourishing. Trumpy will send in the FBI, Federal Marshalls, State and local police and flush out these inner city sewers and restore law and order. These inner city sewers are in mainly Democrat controlled cities. of course. Who else would tolerate the lawlessness and implement a catch and release program for repeat criminal felons who should be in state or federal lockup? Liberals of course!
    You assume I’m racist, you don’t know jack, punk.

  12. And am gonna fuk all you deplorables. Just wait. You voted for me because you are chumps. Wait for my revenge. On you.

  13. The “mythical” silent Trump vote turned out to be very, very real and powerful. A true force that was completely undetectable.

  14. Thank you chumps, I mean Trumps, for answering Godfather Zappala’s call to vote Republican. With lots of money on the line now, La Familia is going to ride this phony, I mean pony all the way to the bank.
