Hillary Clinton is ahead in a number of important battleground states, including Pennsylvania and Florida, according to Sunday morning’s NBC News/Wall Street Journal latest poll results.
The battlegrounds of Wisconsin and Ohio also favor Clinton, The Hill reported Sunday.
Clinton’s Pennsylvania lead, thanks to overwhelming support in Philadelphia and its suburbs, is up to 12 percent among likely voters in both a two-way race (51-39) with Republican Donald Trump and the four-way race with Libertarian Gary Johnson (6 percent) and the Green Party’s Jill Stein (just 4 percent) added, which favors Clinton 49-37 over Trump. The Pennsylvania poll was conducted Oct. 3-6 among 701 likely voters, before Trump’s comments to Billy Bush, with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 points.
Clinton leads Trump 74-21 in Philadelphia and 64-28 in its suburbs, according to the poll.
The Florida race is closer, within the margin of error of 3.7 percent even, but 700 likely voters polled Oct. 3-5 still favor Clinton 45-42 in the four-way race (Johnson 5 percent and Stein 3 percent) and 46-44 in the two-way race.
"In terms of pathways to 270 [electoral votes], it's hard to see how Trump can win the White House without carrying this state," Lee Miringoff, director of Marist College's Institute for Public Opinion, told NBC News.
The Hill’s report, citing polls released Sunday, has Clinton leading by 4 points in Ohio (46-42), 4 points in Wisconsin (43-39) and 8 points in Pennsylvania (48-40).
