That’s according to the latest Public Policy Polling survey, which has McGinty up 44% to 42% over Sen. Toomey.
When Libertarian Party nominee Edward Clifford is included, McGinty’s lead increases to 40% to 35% while Clifford gets 9%. Interestingly, it appears that the Libertarian hurts Toomey more, despite the fact that on the national level Johnson is taking votes away from Clinton.
McGinty does still hold a greater favorable/unfavorable split of 31/43 compared to Toomey’s 27/44.
Public Policy Polling surveyed 886 likely Pennsylvania voters on September 27th and 28th. The margin of error is +/- 3.3%.
