Hillary Clinton leads among likely voters by three points in the swing state of Pennsylvania, according to a new Emerson poll.

Clinton polled ahead of Donald Trump, 46-43, with Libertarian Gary Johnson following at 7 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

Emerson College has not recently polled Pennsylvania voters on general election choice, but the latest poll from NBC/WSJ/Marist showed Clinton ahead by nine percent, 45-36, with Johnson at 9 percent and Stein at 3 percent among registered voters in the state.

The poll, conducted Aug. 25-28, surveyed 800 likely Pennsylvania voters through an automated survey, including only landline phone numbers. The results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for Pennsylvania shows Clinton leading Trump, 46.2 to 42.6.
