    Biden Facing Enthusiasm Problem in Home State PA

    Biden is facing a real enthusiasm problem in home state of Pennsylvania
    NewYork Post ^ | June 6,2020 | By Salena Zito

    PITTSBURGH — Despite a deadly pandemic, staggering unemployment and racial unrest, Pennsylvania voters showed up in record numbers to take part in their presidential primary Tuesday — even though the results were a foregone conclusion.

    “We are already looking at a 40 percent voter turnout, which is what we hit in 2016 where there were still contested races on both sides of the aisle,” said Rich Fitzgerald, Allegheny County executive. “These numbers are way off the charts.”

    And judging by the numbers so far, President Trump drew voters out in force. With almost 98 percent of districts counted, Republicans have cast more than 861,000 ballots for Donald Trump, with 734,000 Democrats voting for Joe Biden. And while it’s still unclear how many people voted in person versus mail-in ballot, some counties are reporting that Trump drew plenty of supporters out of their homes.

    Most voters who cast in-person ballots in the suburban Pittsburgh county of Beaver, for example, were Republicans, said Daniel Camp, a GOP elected official there. “Republican turnout in person outperformed Democrat turnout in a county where there are 10,000 more registered Democrats,” Camp said.

    While national polls show Biden leading Trump, it’s the swing states that matter. And the latest Change Research poll shows the two candidates neck and neck in battleground states won by Trump in 2016. Both men are tied in Wisconsin, Biden holds a slim lead in North Carolina and Michigan, and here in Pennsylvania, Trump leads by 4 percentage points. Winning Pennsylvania is crucial for Biden — no Democrat has lost here and won the presidency since 1960.

    David La Torre, a Republican public affairs executive, said he’s only seen one Biden sign in Pennsylvania so far — and that wasn’t even in person. “It was a borough councilman, celebrating on social media the picture he took of a Biden sign in somebody’s yard.”

    Trump signs, meanwhile, he’s seen a lot of them.
    “They are everywhere,” La Torre said, “and many of them are homemade.”

    My next door neighbor is a recently retired lifetime resident of PA who sold his business and home there and bought next to me. Cool cat, nice fellow. He probably owns 60 guns as well as an ammo dump. Trains LEO's on tactical weapons training as part time gig. He thinks Biden is just the moron that we all know he is. According to him, PA is a very conservative state when you get away from the hood ridden cities.

    I was born in PA and have many relatives in the Pittsburgh area. I talk to them on Facebook but honestly don't know what their political leanings are. I was glad to read this article.

    Biden put everyone to sleep already................................
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    More than just a popularity contest between Trump and Biden

    Biden's support is, as the cliche would have it: 'a mile wide and and an inch deep'.

    He is simply not very exciting and to the radicalized Democrats now the majority in that party; too old, too white and too dumb.

    Biden gets tepid support from the left but the enthusiasm is clearly not there. Trump supporters, on the other hand, remain highly enthusiastic and grow more so as he is constantly attacked by the left and their flunkies, the corrupt mendacious national mass media.

    The Democrats have tried the Russia hoax,a impeachment based on a flimsy premise (a harmless phone call), the corona virus pandemic and subsequent sabotage of the economy due to business shutdowns and job losses and now, carefully orchestrated violence around the U.S. and overseas predicated on alleged - but false - claims of 'systemic racism' in police departments and the nation as a whole. Translation: if you're not black or brown, you're an irredeemable racist and must be re-educated or 'purged'. Any relation to communist dogma is not accidental.

    All this to (a) remove Trump from office (they can't defeat him at the polls and they know it) and, (b) to achieve the leftist goal of controlling America and stamping out our freedom under the boot heel of a centrally controlled government. Controlled by guess who?

    They will fail. They must fail. Our beloved nation and our God given freedom is at state.

    Jim
    "Need" now means wanting someone else's (taxpayer) money. "Greed" means wanting to keep your own profit. "Compassion" is when a politician arranges the transfer. - Joseph Sobran

    Biden's home state is Delaware.

    Nonetheless, the OP news is still nice to hear.
    This message has been hidden because CNN is on your ignore list.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.
