The Pennsylvania GOP Presidential primary is a toss-up.
That’s the conclusion of the latest Franklin & Marshall poll.
Donald Trump still leads the field with 33% but his lead has shrunk. John Kasich has doubled his support since last month and now sits at 30%. Ted Cruz rounds out the field at 20% while 17% still don’t know.
When broken down by demographic, Kasich leads among quite a few categories of Republicans including: Slightly liberals, Moderates, those over 55, those with a college degree, those making more than $75K, Protestants, non-gun owners, Allegheny residents, Central PA residents, Southeast PA residents, and those who are retired.
Meanwhile, Cruz even leads with Extremely conservative voters and Born-Again Christians.
Additionally, the undecided respondents were asked who they leaned toward. 25% chose Cruz as compared to 16% and 13% for Trump and Kasich respectively.
PA’s primary election is set for April 26th.
This poll was conducted by the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College. They surveyed 312 registered Republican voters from March 14th to March 20th. The margin of error is +/- 5.4%.
