PA would have gone with Hillary if the congressional districts were not gerrymandered "unconstitutionally" allowing Trump to squeak in a win. Now the republicans are going to lose even more seats in the 2018 elections, most likely leading to a Democratic party majority in the House, leading to Trump's impeachment and possible conviction in the Senate.

Pennsylvania court set to redraw voting maps after governor veto

"Pennsylvania’s top court was set to lay out new congressional voting districts for the state after Democratic Governor Tom Wolf on Tuesday rejected a version drawn by Republican legislative leaders as unfairly skewed in their party’s favor.

In a 5-2 party-line vote, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Democratic majority last month invalidated the existing map as an unconstitutional gerrymander, ruling that Republican lawmakers marginalized Democratic voters to win more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

A new map is expected to boost Democrats’ chances of winning several Pennsylvania seats in November’s midterm elections, when they need 24 nationwide to take control of the House from Republicans. Republicans hold 13 of 18 congressional seats in the closely contested swing state.

Legal battles are playing out in several U.S. states over partisan gerrymandering, the process by which district lines are manipulated to favor one party over another. Pennsylvania has long been seen as one of the worst offenders, with one of its more oddly shaped districts nicknamed “Goofy Kicking Donald Duck.”

“The analysis by my team shows that, like the 2011 map, the map submitted to my office by Republican leaders is still a gerrymander,” Wolf said in a statement. “Their map clearly seeks to benefit one political party, which is the essence of why the court found the current map to be unconstitutional.”

Absent an agreement between Wolf and the Republican-controlled legislature, the court plans to draw new lines itself by Monday, with help from an independent redistricting expert. Both sides can submit proposed maps for consideration by Thursday."

Why not just use blocks of adjacent counties for districts? No gerrymandering at all should be used.

Agreed. they could easily make congressional districts that comply with the PA constitution and federal requirements, they don't because they want to tip the scales in their favor.

Federal requirements for state legislative redistricting
The United States Constitution is silent on the issue of state legislative redistricting. In the mid-1960s, the United States Supreme Court issued a series of rulings in an effort to clarify standards for state legislative redistricting. In Reynolds v. Sims, the court ruled that "the Equal Protection Clause [of the United States Constitution] demands no less than substantially equal state legislative representation for all citizens, of all places as well as of all races." According to All About Redistricting, "it has become accepted that a [redistricting] plan will be constitutionally suspect if the largest and smallest districts [within a state or jurisdiction] are more than 10 percent apart."[10]

State-based requirements
In addition to the federal criteria noted above, individual states may impose additional requirements on redistricting. Common state-level redistricting criteria are listed below.

Contiguity refers to the principle that all areas within a district should be physically adjacent. A total of 49 states require that districts of at least one state legislative chamber be contiguous (Nevada has no such requirement, imposing no requirements on redistricting beyond those enforced at the federal level). A total of 23 states require that congressional districts meet contiguity requirements.[10][11]
Compactness refers to the general principle that the constituents within a district should live as near to one another as practicable. A total of 37 states impose compactness requirements on state legislative districts; 18 states impose similar requirements for congressional districts.[10][11]
A community of interest is defined by FairVote as a "group of people in a geographical area, such as a specific region or neighborhood, who have common political, social or economic interests." A total of 24 states require that the maintenance of communities of interest be considered in the drawing of state legislative districts. A total of 13 states impose similar requirements for congressional districts.[10][11]
A total of 42 states require that state legislative district lines be drawn to account for political boundaries (e.g., the limits of counties, cities and towns). A total of 19 states require that similar considerations be made in the drawing of congressional districts."

amazing.. I was pretty sure this and the other dozen or so charges of voter rights and zoning corruption that have been instituted for decades would be artificially put on hold until next year

well I thought that would be what they would be attempting.

Hillary didn't even come close to winning anything. You should stop believing what you see on tv and read on the internet.

Pennsylvania is gerrymandered, and always has been.

But normally by Democrats. They are crying foul because they lost the last election (Trump) in a state that is predominantly rural and conservative that has often elected Democrat governors.

A year after the presidential election rural and suburban is plastered with Trump signs. Current and retired union workers are supporting Trump.

Despite Pittsburgh, Erie and Philadelphia it is a Red state that is only getting redder.

That's not how it works OP. TRUMP would have carried pa regardless. District lines have nothing to do with presidential elections.
