PPP Poll: Clinton 46% Trump 42%
That’s according to the latest PPP survey, which found Clinton ahead 46% to 42%.
Earlier this month, Clinton and Trump were tied at 44%.
Among women, Hillary leads Donald 47% to 40% while they each received 45% from men.
Meanwhile, each has about the same support with their own party. Clinton’s numbers with Democrats (74/18) are not that different from Trump’s with Republicans (73/12). Clinton does lead, however, with independents (48/41).
Even steeper than the gender gap in PA is the racial one. By a 50-39 margin, white voters prefer Trump. Clinton, though, holds an extraordinary 90-2 lead with black voters. She is also ahead 52-29 with other voters.
Finally, the Democrat’s strongest age group is young people. 18 to 29 year-olds (59/31) and 30 to 45 year-olds (48/41) prefer Clinton, suggesting she is not struggling with Sanders supporters. Trump meanwhile is ahead with 46 to 65 year-olds (47/41) and those older than 65 (44/43).
Public Policy Polling surveyed 980 registered Pennsylvania voters from June 22th to 23rd. The margin of error is +/- 3.1%.
