New Poll Shows Clinton Leading Trump In Pa. By 9 Points

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Just hours after setting history as the first woman to accept a major political party's U.S. presidential nomination, a new poll shows Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead over Donald Trump in Pennsylvania.

The Suffolk University poll of likely general-election voters in Pennsylvania shows Clinton with a 9-point lead over Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

That does include 8 percent undecided.

The University also included a four-way scenario poll, with Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson. In that poll, Clinton led Trump 46 percent to 37 percent, with Johnson receiving 5 percent and Stein 3 percent.

Director of the Suffolk University Research Center in Boston, David Paleologos, had this to say about the poll: "Hillary Clinton is flirting with fifty thanks to Philly. At this point Clinton's large lead in the Philadelphia area is offsetting losses to Trump in other parts of the state. She also is amassing the support of women and thus drowning out Trump's marginal lead among men."

The poll also included a look at the hotly contest U.S. Senate race between Democrat Katie McGinty and incumbent U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey.

That poll showed McGinty leading Toomey 43 percent to 36 percent, but a whopping 20 percent still undecided.
