Clinton Gains In New F&M Pennsylvania Poll

HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — A week of bad news for Donald Trump means good news for Hillary Clinton in a brand new Franklin and Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania voters.

In the last Franklin and Marshall College Poll about a month ago, Donald Trump had closed the gap a bit — after a week of bad news for Hillary Clinton. In the latest survey, Poll Director Terry Madonna says the tables have turned. Clinton leads by nine points, 47-percent to 38-percent, among likely Pennsylvania voters, and 12 points among registered voters.

“And it has everything to do with the bad week Trump has had, not arguably his worst week since the campaign began. You have the debate performance which polls have shown that he underperformed,” Madonna said. “I think he probably lost three, four points of the nine in the Franklin and Marshall College Poll that trails probably because of the debate performance.”

Madonna says the debate was followed by Trump controversies involving a former Miss Universe and income taxes.

In the race for U.S. Senate, Democrat Katie McGinty holds a six point lead over Incumbent Republican Pat Toomey, 41-percent to 35-percent, among likely voters.

    Hillary Clinton’s proposal to accept an additional 65,000 Syrian refugees annually could potentially cost $403 billion in lifetime costs if implemented all four years in a hypothetical first term.

    That’s according to a new analysis released Monday by the Senate subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

    Currently, the Obama administration is planning to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees in fiscal year 2016, which ends September 30.

    In total, the Obama administration is planning to take in 85,000 refugees, while the original plan was to take in 100,000 refugees. Clinton’s proposal would potentially increase that number to 155,000 refugees entering the United States annually.

    The total cost of refugees is not included in the resettlement budget provided to the Department of State and Department of Health and Human Services because of the myriad of social services refugees qualify for.

    These social services include Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Temporary Assistance For Needy Families, and other programs. (RELATED: Obama Administration Doesn’t Rack Loans Given To Refugees)

    Robert , a scholar at the Heritage Foundation, estimated the costs of local, state, and federal benefits for refugees and found that the lifetime cost of admitting 10,000 refugees is $6.5 billion.

    If Hillary Clinton, were to employ her refugee plan in office, her first year would lead to an estimated lifetime cost to taxpayers of of $100.7 billion.

    Four years of a Clinton presidency with that rate of refugee resettlement would have a lifetime cost of $403 billion to taxpayers.

    These figures also do not include the costs that would come along with resettling the family members of those refugees in the United States.

    One year after being resettled, refugees are allowed to obtain Lawful Resident Status — green cards — and petition for family members to come over to the United States.

    Five years after entering the U.S., refugees are able to become naturalized citizens and further petition for family members to come over.

    There is also a program known as “follow-to-join” which allows for refugees to petition within in their first two years of entry for the admittance of spouses and unmarried children.

    Refugees can also enter the U.S. through “private sponsorship.” That would include either work authorizations, student visas or medical visas. These refugees would not fall under the cap set by the government.

    Hillary Clinton when defending sexual predator Bill Clinton against rape allegations established a war room where she referred to Monica Lewinsky as an insane young woman and Paula Jones and Juanita Broderrick as a Bimbo Eruption ,but Hillary goes after Mr. Trump for calling someone fat.
