Barack Obama is doing well in most of the United States, including small, rural states that have voted Republican since before I was born. But not in Pennsylvania. Hillary Clinton has a double-digit lead by most accounts. And I think it’s because Obama’s message doesn’t play very well in the Keystone State.
He tells America, “Let’s have hope for the future.” But this state gave up hope a long time ago.
I can’t say exactly why everyone is so roll-over-and-die, it’s just a fact of life. And this isn’t some Maryland transplant talking; I’ve never lived much more than an hour’s drive from Harrisburg my entire life.
The New York Times found the same thing when it parachuted in over the past few weeks. Read about it here.
Do you think this is a fair take on Pennsylvania. And is it any worse here than anywhere else?
