You PA guys might be sick of it, but consider that you are actually "important" in this election cycle. Up here in NY it was a forgone conclusion that Hillary and McCain would win the day with huge margins. You vote and your state are in contention here. Make your voice heard! Go out, find a national news TV camera and get on TV! :)

Just for my own info....Is there anyone here who will be voting in the Democratic Penn. primary, & if so, anyone voting for Hillary? (care to tell us why?)

I don't see Barack winning Penn., the gun and religion comment pretty much killed him at least in areas like mine which has many hunters and very deep religious roots. H eprobably should have considered the fact there is millions of licensed hunters in PA.

In any event I guess we'll find out shortly.

Chris Matthews on "Hardball" has the opinion that if Hillary wins by at least 10 points, she should go on....Under 10 points, she should drop out.

I'm predicting he gets hemmered, he'll probably do well in Philadelphia but not very well in the rest of the state. Pennsylvania is mostly rural, you have pockets of urban areas surrounded by country. It's going to be these areas that are not going to vote for him IMO.

Let me give you give you idea of what these small urban areas are usually like. Generally a large part of the population is going to hunt, knows someone that hunts, doesn't hunt but doesn't really care. You have many gun owners whether they hunt or not, I know very people that do not own a gun.

On the religious front you will not only have a church servicing these towns but will usually have multiple churches. There was saying about Plymouth, Pennsylvania years ago. They had a bar, a church and funeral home on every block and that wasn't too far from the truth and still holds true to some extent today. Might be every other block... Most of these churches will have been in existence for better than a hundred years. These are not small little churches either but quite ornate buildings built to last. Religion has always been deeply rooted in the communities and considering the income of the people that built these churches many years ago that's testament to that fact. I can walk out of my house and go to 5 different churches, the closest one is about 30 seconds and the longest might take 5 minutes to get too. Those are just the ones in my comunnity, I could walk across the bridge and be within walking distance of another 7 or 8 churches.

There's a picture of two of them here near the bottom of the first post: http://www.city-data.com/forum/northeas ... homes.html

The red one is the one I can get too in 30 seconds.

Pittsburgh although a large city is going to have a similar makeup.

To tell you the truth I can't think of two single things he could have picked to discuss that would have caused more damage to his campaign...truthfully.

Edit: actually if you scroll down through that link you'll come across two photos taken inside one of those houses with guns mounted on the walls and another with deerhead mounts.

PA dem primary is a closed primary, isn't it? Have to be registered Dem to get in? Maybe I'm making a logical leap I shouldn't. If you aren't voting for either one in november then I'm assuming you're either independent or republican registration.
