Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton holds a 9-point lead over her Republican counterpart Donald Trump in the key swing state of Pennsylvania, according to a Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll released over the weekend.
In the survey, Clinton leads with 47 percent of likely voters, Trump has 38 percent, 11 percent say they would not choose one of the major-party candidates, and 4 percent are not sure.
In polls last month, Clinton's percentage-point advantage in the state was solidly in double digits.
Other results of the survey indicate:
- In a four-way race, Clinton's lead narrows to 8 points as she gets 40 percent support, Trump 32 percent, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson 14 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein 5 percent.
- Among Republicans, 71 percent support Trump, 10 percent back Clinton and 19 percent are unsure.
- 81 percent of Democrats are for Clinton, 11 percent support Trump and 9 percent are uncertain.
- Independents favor Clinton 42 percent to 33 percent, while 25 percent are undecided.
- Among women voters, Clinton leads Trump by 18 percentage points.
- Voters with college degrees give Clinton a substantial 51 percent to 35 percent edge.
- In Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, Clinton has a 30-point advantage.
- In Pittsburgh and the adjacent southwestern counties, Clinton leads Trump by 3 points.
- In parts of the state outside those areas, Trump has a 48 percent to 37 percent margin.
The survey was conducted from Sept. 12-16 among 405 likely general election voters. The margin of error is 5.5 points.
The poll took place after Clinton stumbled into a Secret Service vehicle after she left a Sept. 11 memorial event early due to a bout of pneumonia.
