Donald Trump Losing Momentum In Pennsylvania

In 2016, Donald Trump won Pennsylvania. He also won the general election and became our president.

In 2020, Donald Trump did NOT win Pennsylvania.

He also did NOT win the general election in 2020.

I don't know if two times in a row is enough to constitute a pattern, but I think Donald Trump may be looking at a pattern here. Pennsylvania is WILDLY important to the final outcome of the presidential election.

Unfortunately for Donald, Pennsylvania is looking more like 2020 than 2016 for him right now.

Back in 2016, Pennsylvania Republicans Lou Barletta and Tom Marino became the first members of Congress to endorse Donald Trump for president. The duo, nicknamed "Thunder and Lightning" by Donald Trump, campaigned heavily all over the state for Trump.

As a result, Trump broke the Republican streak of not winning Pennsylvania since 1992.

If Trump wants to do it again in 2024, he's going to have to do it without Thunder and without Lightning.

That's because Barletta and Marino just came out to endorse Ron DeSantis for president in 2024, despite the fact that Florida Ron has not officially announced he would run yet.

Trump's 2016 Pennsylvania advisor, David Urban, thinks that this is a HUGE blow for Donald Trump in an important state.

"I cannot overstate their importance in 2016," Urban said. "They were credible, likable, mainstream Republicans who were, along with Chris Collins of New York, the first supporters on Capitol Hill. We used to meet in the Capitol Hill Club on Thursdays, and there were those three and eventually two or three others who joined along. Marino and Barletta were early, early and big, and vocal for the former president. Every time he came to Pennsylvania, they were there. Every time he traveled, they were there. I mean, they were die-hard Trump folks. And I think they could speak for themselves, but I think that they became very, just, upset with the president's actions during the post-election."
