Poll: Clinton up 9 on Trump in Pennsylvania
« on: October 05, 2016, 02:42:17 PM »

Hillary Clinton has extended her lead to 9 points over Donald Trump in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, a new poll finds.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has 47 percent support to Trump's 38 percent, according to a Franklin & Marshall College Poll released Tuesday.

Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has 5 percent, with Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 0 percent.

The result is encouraging for Clinton, who had led the state by between 1 and 4 points in most recent polls.

Both major-party nominees have made Pennsylvania a priority, peppering the state with advertising and campaign events. Last week alone, both Trump, the Republican nominee, and running mate Mike Pence had events in the Keystone State, while first lady Michelle Obama — a top Clinton surrogate — spoke in Philadelphia.

Franklin & Marshall College conducted its poll of 496 likely voters in Pennsylvania via online and telephone interviews from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2. It has a margin of error of 6.1 percentage points.
