President Donald Trump is in a statistical three-way tie with each of the top Democratic presidential candidates in Pennsylvania, according to a new poll released by Muhlenberg College.
Trump narrowly trails Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 49-46%, and is locked in a tie with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., at 47%.
Trump also holds slim leads over Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., 45-44%, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor, Pete Buttigieg, 45-45%, and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, 48-45%.
All hypothetical matchups are within the 5.5 percentage point margin of error.
The poll also found:
- Trump's job approval rating among Pennsylvania voters has modestly improved with 42% approving of his work as president.
- 44% of Pennsylvania voters feel Trump does not deserve re-election, compared with 42% who believe he deserves a second term in office.
- Pennsylvania voters give Trump high marks for his management of the economy (58% approve) but very negative ratings for his work on healthcare (36% approve) and the environment (31% approve).
- 21% say the economy is the most important issue in the 2020 election.
- 22% said the impeachment process made them more likely to vote for Trump in November.
The poll surveyed 424 registered voters in Pennsylvania between Feb. 12-20. Forty-seven percent of the poll's respondents identified as Democrats, 40% identified as Republicans, 11 % identified as independent.
