The mainstream media has been absolutely riveted to each and every poll in the past weeks that have shown Donald Trump’s numbers slipping. So much so that we started to see headlines proclaiming the collapse of Trump’s campaign, rumors of him dropping out of the race and now it’s being reported that Clinton is already planning her Whitehouse transition.
The Washington Post, who doesn’t even attempt to hide their biasness towards Trump, released an article with the headline, “With a comfortable lead, Clinton begins laying plans for her White House agenda.”
Perhaps they should hold their horses until the voters actually cast their ballots in November, before they start celebrating the crowning of Queen Hillary just yet.
Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton 41.9 percent to 36.5 percent, with 21.5 percent voters undecided.
Pennsylvania will be a key battleground state for Trump and Clinton this year, one that could make the difference in who is elected president.
Donald Trump has massive support among the blue collar community in PA, which was typically a safe zone for Democrats, as they have come to relate to Trump’s message of working for the common working class than Clinton’s pandering to certain classes.
One of Trump’s main support groups in PA is NEPAforTrump, which covers the entire northeastern area of PA. This area once had a large coal mining industry and residents enjoyed middle class lifestyles. But, recent decades have seen this area hard hit by trade deals and jobs being shipped overseas.
Perhaps the blue collar “Reagan Democrats” will be enough to change the course of history for PA this year, and send a message straight to the heart of Washington DC that their voices will be heard.
UPDATE: CBS8 has since removed the page on their website that reported this poll, although an archived copy can be found here.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has surged to a 5-point lead over democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania as per a latest poll.
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – August 21, 2016 – (Newswire.com)
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has surged to a 5-point lead over democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania as per the poll conducted by CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution, on Friday (19th Aug 2016).
Trump leads Clinton 41.9 percent to 36.5 percent, with 21.5 percent voters undecided. Trump’s lead is just inside the margin of error and marks the first time that the Republican candidate is catching up in the traditional stronghold state of the democratic party.
The survey contacted around 1,000 registered voters. Results are estimated to be accurate within 7.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. According to CEPEX analysis, the error percentage is high due to the results obtained from just one day of polling. Subsequent polling would be required to reduce the error percentage.
While it is noteworthy that Trump is making headway in this battleground state, the undecided voters hold the key to the eventual outcome on Nov 8.
“With the undecided voters holding the key which way the state eventually goes in November, both the campaign teams should be tweaking their ground games to win over this key demographic” Parth Mukherjee, Expert Principal, CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution.
“One of the reasons of Trump’s surge is attributable to seemingly strong support from the women” added Mukherjee.
CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution will continue to conduct independent polls in the various states leading up to the presidential election this November.
