Clinton Leads By 11 Points In Pennsylvania Poll


Hillary Clinton comes out 11 points ahead of Donald Trump in the midst of the FBI’s announcement about Clinton’s emails, in a new Pennsylvania poll from Franklin & Marshall University.

Clinton leads the poll of likely voters, 49-38, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

The former Secretary of State expanded her lead by a two points since Franklin & Marshall last polled the state in September, when Clinton led 47-38.

However her lead in the latest Franklin & Marshall poll is larger than recent Pennsylvania polls, which show a slightly closer race.

A Siena College/New York Times Upshot poll released last week showed Clinton +7, while a Muhlenberg College/Morning Call poll released over the weekend showed her +6.

The Franklin & Marshall poll was conducted Oct. 26-30 over the phone and online among 652 likely Pennsylvania voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.1 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election in Pennsylvania shows Clinton leading Trump, 47.1 to 41.9.
