F&M Poll: Hillary 52% Bernie 18%
According to the latest Franklin & Marshall poll, the Vermont Senator has his supporters but the former Secretary of State is still the clear leader.
Hillary Clinton is the 2016 presidential choice of 52% of PA Democrats while Bernie Sanders comes in a distant second with 18%.
The result isn’t a major surprise as Clinton has many ties to the Keystone State. Her father was born in Scranton and she beat Barack Obama in their 2008 contest here. She is also in the middle of a hot streak.
The silver lining for Sanders is that at least he’s not Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley who didn’t even garner 1% of support.
17% were unsure while 12% replied that they want another candidate.
This poll was conducted by the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College. They surveyed 303 registered Democratic Pennsylvania voters from October 19th to October 25th. The margin of error is +/- 3.9%.
