    Oh dear Way back in the summer of 2015 - shortly after Donald Trump announced his candidacy - I was asked if he could actually win. My answer was an emphatic yes. While the media was obsessing over his style, I was arguing that people felt the country was dangerously of course. They wanted a candidate who would drop the namby-pamby political schtick and throw some real punches. If Trump could stop getting in his own way, I argued, Hillary’s glass jaw would emerge and her campaign would collapse - just as it did in 2008. My liberal friends laughed....
  • CNN/ORC polls: Trump, Clinton deadlocked in Colorado, Pennsylvania

    (CNN)Just one point separates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in two states that are critical to both candidates' chances of becoming president, according to new CNN/ORC polls in Pennsylvania and Colorado. In Colorado, likely voters break 42% for Trump, 41% for Clinton, 13% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 3% for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Pennsylvania's likely voters split 45% for Clinton, 44% for Trump, 6% for Johnson and 3% for Stein. Those divides are well within each poll's 3.5-point margin of sampling error.

    Politics PA ^ | September 25, 2016 | Nick Field, Managing Editor
    It appears the race in PA has tightened. That’s according to the latest Morning Call/Muhlenberg survey, which has Hillary Clinton at 44% and Donald Trump at 41%. Just a week ago, Morning Call and Muhlenberg College had Clinton with a 47% to 38% advantage over Trump. If Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein are included, Clinton’s lead over Trump narrows to two points, 40% to 38%. Johnson and Stein get 8% and 3% respectively. Demographics Digging into the crosstabs, Trump’s gains seem to come from additional support from Republicans (85/5) and the middle of the...

    WASHINGTON — On the eve of the first presidential debate, a new Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows a narrow gap between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump amid rising support for Trump within his own party. Clinton still leads Trump in a head-to-head matchup, but only by a 3-point margin, 44 percent to 41 percent. Those results showed Clinton's support dropping and Trump's gaining compared with a Morning Call/Muhlenberg poll a week earlier, which showed Clinton at 47 percent and Trump at 38 percent. In a four-way matchup, Clinton leads by 2 points, at 40 percent to Trump's 38...

    Students all over Penn State University agree on this much about Hillary Clinton: "She’s slimy," said Anay Pope. And Pope, 25, is a Clinton supporter. For the moment. Clinton’s poll numbers are sagging, and the biggest reason is that she’s plunging among young voters. A Quinnipiac University poll this month found that in a four-way race, Clinton is up 5 points nationally with 18- to 34-year-old voters, down from a 24-point lead just a month before. Just days ahead of the first debate Monday and less than two months before voting ends, she faces two challenges: Many young voters are...

In this day and age, it is great to have that support,” Chitwood said. Along with a Harper Avenue resident who came out swinging his golf club during the police-involved altercation, Chitwood said at least two other Harper Avenue residents called 911.

As Pennsylvania has consistently picked Democrats for president since electing Bill Clinton in 1992, many considered Hillary Clinton...

    The shift in Virgina seems rather stunning. Only a few days ago, most pundits, including conservative ones, had written the state off. With the last two polls showing a virtual tie, that analysis is out the window. Pennsylvania is also closing, but still sits at a 6.0 point margin for Hillary, so for now, it will remain out of the index. This shift is significant because Trump can pull into the lead just by bringing Republicans into his tent. He has not been achieving the ninety percent level of Republican support that a GOP candidate typically receives. He has been...

Christie, a close ally of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, said in a statement that he was forced to act because the Democrat-controlled legislature created a $250 million budget hole in June by relying on public employee health insurance cuts they have not yet made.

As Philly In Focus reports, Fanatic program director Matt Nahigian will meet with Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania organizer Asa Khalif on Friday at 10 a.m. The well-known activist most recently made headlines after placing a Ku Klux Klan hood on the statue of Frank Rizzo in Center City, and calling for it to be tossed into the Schuylkill River during a protest this month. PIF reporter and activist Christopher “Flood...

    A Philadelphia man and woman have been charged in a home invasion in Chester that left a 75-year-old man bound at the hands and feet by cords, and his 49-year-old daughter severely beaten and in critical condition. Erinn Howarth, 25, of Germantown - who is possibly the man's housekeeper - and Richard Johnson, 23, of Juniata Park, were arraigned Thursday morning on charges that include robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and conspiracy. Both were held in the Delaware County prison on $1 million bail each.

    Salena Zito August 23, 2016 If you drive anywhere in Pennsylvania, from the turnpike to the old US routes to the dirt roads connecting small towns like Hooversville with “bigger” small towns like Somerset, you might conclude that Donald Trump is ahead in this state by double digits. Large signs, small signs, homemade signs, signs that wrap around barns, signs that go from one end of a fence to another dot the landscape with such frequency that, if you were playing the old-fashioned road-trip game of counting cows, you would hit 100 in just one small town like this one....

    They operate heavy machinery. They Uber. They gush over the Olympics. Their friends are Bernie Sanders supporters. They’re on the local baseball team. Yes, they want to make America great again, but Donald Trump’s supporters contain multitudes. They are not, on the whole, the white-devil, frothing Confederate fanatics baffled columnists have made them out to be. So who is Team Trump, really? We met up with locals waiting in line to attend a Trump rally in Altoona, Pa., where the population is 93.8 percent white (as opposed to the national proportion of 77.1 percent), and discussed the colony at Jamestown,...
  • Hmmm: GOP winning registration wars in battleground states

    Is this a measure of enthusiasm for Donald Trump, or the effectiveness of the RNC’s extensive investment in ground operations? Despite polling that suggests — at the moment — that Republicans will experience a wipeout in swing states in the presidential election, voter registration data shows the GOP gaining momentum. In key swing states, Republican registrations and party-switching has outpaced Democrats, raising questions about enthusiasm and turnout models: Trump’s poll numbers remain dire, but he can point to at least one ray of hope for a turnaround: Republicans have continued gaining ground in recent months in voter registration in Florida,...
  • Poll that Showed Trump +5 in PA Removed from CBS8 Website

    Yesterday, I reported a new poll that showed Donald Trump +5 ahead of Hillary Clinton in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania. CBS8 reported a story about this poll, conducted by Project Execution, explaining that results showed Trump leading Clinton 41.9% to 36.5%. CBS8 has since mysteriously removed the page with their report on this poll for some reason, perhaps the person who wrote it wasn’t aware it didn’t fit the mainstream media’s narrative of Donald Trump being doomed beyond all hope. The original link to this CBS8 story can be found here, which you can see now comes up...

    Susquehanna Township resident Carl Shuman was heading home from a business trip in Pittsburgh Monday night, and after a pleasant drive, he pulled up to the toll booth at the Carlisle exit, ready to pay his toll. There, he was stunned by something that in his more than four decades of driving and in his professional life as an employment-law attorney, he had never encountered -- not like this, anyway, he said. As the car in front of him left the booth, Shuman noticed the toll collector shaking his head and smirking. "He said something very close to, 'Them black...

    Slam on the brakes. That's what state lawmakers want to do to increasingly frequent instances of motorists skirting payment of Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls. The problem wouldn't be nearly as prevalent had many of those same legislators years ago taken a detour around the lame-brain idea that directly resulted in turnpike travel becoming significantly more costly. How costly? Pretty soon only Saudi Arabian sheiks will be able to afford the outrageous tolls, though those guys probably prefer to fly their personal planes from Pittsburgh to Breezewood. Those lacking private jet transportation sidestep the tolls in renegade fashion. They fly through toll...
