New Poll Shows Clinton Leading By Double Digits In Pennsylvania

The unconventional 2016 election could be shifting swing states as Democratic presidential nominee Clinton led opponent Donald Trump by double digits in Pennsylvania, according to a Susquehanna Polling and Research survey released Monday.

The poll showed Clinton 10 points ahead of the Republican nominee, 47-37. That’s the second double-digit lead for Clinton in four days, as a Franklin & Marshall poll released Thursday showed Clinton with an 11-point lead in the Keystone State, 49-38.

Susquehanna Polling and Research has not produced any recent Pennsylvania general election polls for comparison.

When third-party candidates were included in the Susquehanna poll, Clinton led Trump by nine points, 46-37, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 7 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.

The poll, conducted by Susquehanna Polling and Research for WHTM-TV and ABC27 News, was conducted July 31-Aug. 4 via telephone. The survey included 772 likely Pennsylvania general election voters, and had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
