Poll: Clinton slides sharply in Pennsylvania, now leads Trump by just two points

In a four-way matchup, Clinton leads by 2 points, at 40 percent to Trump’s 38 percent. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson dropped to 8 percent — down from 14 percent a week ago — and Green Party nominee Jill Stein went from 5 to 3 percent…

The results also suggest some Republicans who had been uncertain about the party’s controversial nominee are showing greater support for Trump.

“Partisans coming home to their nominee is an expected part of any campaign as you get into the closing days,” said Chris Nicholas, a GOP consultant based in Harrisburg. “What’s notable here is the very large shift and we’re not close to the final days.”

A demographic analysis showed a double-digit jump in Trump’s support among Republicans after Trump underperformed with that group previously. This week, 85 percent of likely GOP voters said they’d choose him over Clinton, compared with 71 percent in the prior survey.
