Watch: Pennsylvania Coal Miners a Lock for Trump

Hillary Clinton may be in trouble when it comes to coal miners voting in Pennsylvania.  

Mostly because she told coal miners nationwide that when Obama's clean energy agenda expands, they will lose their jobs. “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” she said at a townhall event last summer.  

In a story by CBS News, Pennsylvania miners like Joe Somogyi, Todd Reesman, and Dave Schrecengost know exactly who they will be voting for in this election.

They will all vote for Donald Trump.

“I feel [Hillary Clinton’s] a cookie cutter of the Obama administration. And it’s not working for middle class, working Americans,” Reesman said.  At age 46, he is casting his first vote ever for president.  “It’s important to me and my family. I have a son that works in the mines.  I think we’re on the brink. The working man, the working class man is gonna be an extinction.”

The three miners said they could sum up their support for Trump with one word: “Change.”
