PA-Sen: Monmouth Poll: McGinty 39% Sestak 39% Fetterman 4%
According to the latest Monmouth Poll, Katie McGinty has tied Joe Sestak in the Senate Democratic primary.
This is the first poll to show McGinty catching Sestak and comes just six days before the April 26th contest.
McGinty and Sestak each recorded 39% while Braddock Mayor John Fetterman is at just 4%. 18% of respondents, though, are still undecided.
Nearly half of voters have no opinion of Sestak, 48%, or McGinty, 51%, so the race will come down to which campaign can better convince those last-minute deciders.
Monmouth also found that McGinty runs best in the western portion of the state (51-28-10) while Sestak is ahead in the Southeast/Philadelphia region (45-34-1) as well as the Northeastern and Central parts of the commonwealth (43-31-3).
The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone from April 17th to 19th and included 302 likely PA Democratic primary voters. The margin of error is +/- 5.6%.
