LUZERNE COUNTY-- A recent poll by Remington Research Group has found Donald Trump leading in Luzerne County, a so-called ‘battleground county.’

That poll shows Trump has 52 percent support versus 37 percent for Clinton in Luzerne County.

Bob Bolus owns a trucking company in Lackawanna County and almost every day for months now, he and his drivers have been taking specialized Donald Trump trailers on the road.

He says the support in Luzerne County and beyond has been tremendous.

"That's why I'm out doing this, our drivers are out doing this because they're dedicated to see something change and he'll make the change,” said Bolus.

In Pittston, Hillary Clinton supporters opened a campaign office Thursday night.

"I was really secure that Hillary Clinton could pull it off, we weren't going to have a problem, and then I saw the polls come out and I said this is not going to be an easy fight so I'm here to lend my support to Hillary Clinton,” said supporter Denise Jemiola who lives in Luzerne County.

"It makes me really concerned that Luzerne County has not stepped up in a way that I always heard Luzerne County stepped up, so I really hope that it's not really gonna happen here and it's going to be a strong Hillary area,” said Adele Tavella, a Clinton campaign volunteer.

Bolus says he's talked to many Democrats who are Trump supporters now.

"It's gonna change. You people have destroyed this country, you've destroyed the growth, that's why people move out of here, companies move have left here because these people have destroyed it,” said Bolus.

According to Remington Research Group, Trump is also leading in another crucial Keystone State county: Northampton County.
