Donald Trump managed to win Pennsylvania in 2016, but buyer’s remorse seems to be setting in as the state turns HARD against Trump and his party.

Pennsylvania voters appear dead set on sending someone to Washington who will oppose the President, and will back that vote by re-electing a Democrat governor, as well.
Franklin & Marshall polled the state. Lou Barletta, Republican for Senate, is getting absolutely destroyed by incumbent Bob Casey Jr, 43-25. Seeing an incumbent at 43 is usually a bad sign for that incumbent, but not so much when he’s up 18 points.
Republicans aren’t doing very well for Governor, either. Laura Ellsworth, Paul Mango, and Scott Wagner all poll at 21 or 22 points to Governor Tom Wolf’s 38-51. Wagner is doing best being down only 17 points (38-21), but Ellsworth and Mango are being crushed 51-22 and 49-22 for 27 and 29 point gaps.
Maybe selling out to steel fatcats, as Republicans have now done, doesn’t help you with the little guy anymore?
