A Tale Of Two States

Two of the most important states in the 2016 election were Pennsylvania and North Carolina.  President Trump carried both.  Each was critical in its own way.  In fact, when Pennsylvania was called for the Republicans, it was clear that the race was over.  Since November, there has been a non-stop anti-Trump campaign that has been focused to a great extent on the states like PA and NC that were close and so important to the Trump victory.  It's worth taking a look now to see where things stand there after the onslaught against the president.

In figures compiled from the two states by Larry Schweikart, we can see the changes in voter registration since last November.  Both parties lost registered voters in each of the states, but the spread between Republicans and Democrats moved in the favor of the Republicans in both states.  In PA, the GOP picked up over 100,000 voters on the Dems.  In NC, the pickup for the GOP was 59,000.  Those are surprising figures if the Democrats/media are having any success separating President Trump from his voter base. 

I'm sure that by tomorrow, someone like Adam Schiff will tell us that the Russians hacked the voter rolls in both states to jack up Republican registration.  The reality, however, is that the non-stop Democrat attack is just not working.
