That’s according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll, which has Hillary Clinton at 51% and Donald Trump at 45%.
When Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein are included they receive 5% and 1% respectively. Clinton gets 47% against Trump’s 41%.
Last month, Clinton’s lead was five points in the two-way contest and four points in the four-way race.
Clinton has the lead among independents (47/44) while Trump’s advantage with Republicans (88/9) is slightly better than Clinton’s with Democrats (87/10).
There are also large gender and racial gaps in the results. For instance, Clinton leads 55% to 40% with women while Trump is ahead 50% to 45% among men. Additionally, non-whites prefer the Democrat by a 78% to 17% margin whereas whites want Trump 51% to 45%.
Finally, despite worries that low candidate favorability ratings would lead to low turnout, 54% say they are more motivated than usual to vote this year. 31% responded that they are at the same level while just 15% believe they are less motivated.
The Quinnipiac University Poll surveyed 660 likely Pennsylvania voters from October 10th to 16th using live interviews from landlines and cell phones. The margin of error is +/- 3.8%.
