Inside Pennsylvania’s political realignment — and how Republicans are winning it

by Jonathan Lai, Julia Terruso and Chris Brennan, Posted: July 29, 2020

Is this true?..Beats me I did get it off a site called the "Inquirer"

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden aren’t competing for the same composition of voters who won Trump the state four years ago. And despite Trump’s eroded political standing at the moment, at least in terms of which voters are joining which party, there’s good news for the GOP: Registration shifts across the state show Republicans are gaining voters at five times the rate of Democrats.

Since the 2016 primary election, Republicans have added about 165,000 net voters, while Democrats added only about 30,000. Democrats still maintain a 800,000-voter edge over Republicans. But that’s down from 936,000 in 2016, when Trump still won the state by less than 1%.

“Look, the president won our state by 44,000-plus votes in 2016,” said Lawrence Tabas, chair of the Pennsylvania Republican Party. “We have since picked up and narrowed the gap between us and the Democrats [by 135,000]. So we were already ahead 44,000, and look what we’ve picked up. I predict we’re going to narrow the gap further between now and November.”

Philadelphia, with its 110% democrat vote, and some of the lily-white, upper-crust burgs, are so out of touch with the rest of the state.  There's an old saying that PA is Phila and Pittsburg with Kentucky in-between.  While it is of course intended as an insult---with strong racist undertones---the "Pennsyltuckians" as they're called, are what made this nation: coal, steel and agriculture, and continue to do so, while the lawyers, latte-sipping software engineers, diversity consultants, hedge-fund trolls, all parasites on humanity, look down on them.

There was a time when blue collar boys used to go to the yuppy/college bars in the wealthy Philadelphia suburbs called the 'Main Line' to get liquored up and beat the snot out of trust fund kids and frat brats  It may still go on.

I never participated, of course...

Fake news!  You can tell because the headline has the phrase “Republicans are winning”!  They are the masters of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
