In the last Franklin and Marshall College Poll about a month ago, Donald Trump had closed the gap a bit — after a week of bad news for Hillary Clinton. In the latest survey, Poll Director Terry Madonna says the tables have turned. Clinton leads by nine points, 47-percent to 38-percent, among likely Pennsylvania voters, and 12 points among registered voters.
“And it has everything to do with the bad week Trump has had, not arguably his worst week since the campaign began. You have the debate performance which polls have shown that he underperformed,” Madonna said. “I think he probably lost three, four points of the nine in the Franklin and Marshall College Poll that trails probably because of the debate performance.”
