Another sign of a Trump victory in NEPA?

Lackawanna County Democrats landed Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota for their committee dinner.  Today, it is reported that only about 100 people attended the event.

Think about that for a second.  Democrats control almost every major office in Lackawanna County.  They probably have over 100 elected officials, but they only get 100 attendees?

Contrast that with the Republican dinner held on Monday, 10/24.  Eric Trump spoke and photos suggest they filled Saint Mary's Center in Scranton with at least 300 people.

Remember, Democrats outnumber Republicans in Lackawanna County by at least 2:1 yet Republicans show up 3:1 over the Democrats to support their candidate and Party?

Just another clear indication that there is simply no interest, no enthusiasm, and no energy for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in Northeastern Pennsylvania in this election.

Need more proof? Look at the voter registration numbers.  Borys Krawczeniuk reported Lackawanna County Democrats grew by an anemic .15% this year.  Contrast that with the herculean growth of the Republicans at 15%.

If Hillary Clinton loses a 2:1 Democratic county like Lackawanna, it is hard to see how she can win Pennsylvania.
