A month ago, McGinty won her first poll of the election cycle by three points. In this month’s edition of the NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, McGinty topped Toomey 48-44%.
McGinty spoke during the last night of the Democratic National Convention several weeks ago, though it seems her speech didn’t sway too many voters.
Still, Gov. Tom Wolf’s former chief of staff will take encouragement from the poll, having erased her underdog status before the Democratic primary in April to lead Toomey going into the final three months of the campaign.
The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll shows the president with a 50% approval rating in the Keystone State.
NBC/WSJ/Marist surveyed 834 registered Pennsylvania voters from August 3rd to 7th. The margin of error is +/-3.4%.
