Pennsylvania could see its first woman elected to the U.S. Senate, according to the results of a new poll.

The survey conducted by ABC27 and Susquehanna Polling and Research last week concluded that Republican incumbent Sen. Pat Toomey is behind his Democratic opponent in the race, Katie McGinty, 42 percent to 40 percent.

Thirty-four percent of those polled said they disapprove of the job Toomey is doing in Washington. He's been a member of the Senate since 2011. Before that, he served in the U.S. House for six years.

Last month, a Quinnipiac University poll found Toomey to have a 10-point lead over McGinty.

Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research said the most recent poll numbers equal a dead heat, since the margin of error is +/- 3.5 percent.

McGinty has held several public service jobs in Pennsylvania, including chief of staff to the governor of Pennsylvania for six months last year. Before that, she worked as the state's secretary of environmental protection for five years.

The same poll also found that Democrat Hillary Clinton has a 10-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in the presidential race among Keystone State voters.
