Pennsylvania: Kasich Pulls Close to Trump, Clinton Dominates

The latest Pennsylvania poll by Franklin & Marshall has placed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at the top of their respective parties. However, John Kasich came in a close second, nearly catching Trump in this poll.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 33%
  • John Kasich – 30%
  • Ted Cruz – 20%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 53%
  • Bernie Sanders – 28%

Trump is still the candidate to beat for the Republicans. He has been dominating the party for months and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.

Kasich performed well in this poll due to the fact that Ohio and Pennsylvania share a lot of similarities. Despite a potential upset in Pennsylvania, Kasich’s campaign has very little chance of winning the nomination, and instead, he is stalling the nomination process and working hard to try and oust Trump as the Republican candidate. Still, by staying in the race, Kasich is splitting the vote and making it harder for the Republican Party to get rid of Trump for good.

As for the Democrats, Clinton should easily walk away with a victory in Pennsylvania. The state favors her establishment credentials and the majority of Democratic voters wouldn’t feel comfortable voting for Bernie Sanders, even if his platform is much better for them.
