Pa. poll: Biden's lead over Trump within margin of error in top battleground state

Former Vice President Joe Biden is still leading President Donald Trump in battleground Pennsylvania, but it's not an insurmountable lead.

Biden's 6-point advantage in a new Franklin & Marshall College poll is "well within the margin of error," said Terry Madonna, pollster and political analyst at the Lancaster college.

"Pennsylvania looks like and continues to be a top battleground state," he said.

The poll released Thursday morning shows Biden doing "extraordinarily well in cities and suburbs," and Trump is still getting most of his support from the blue-collar northeast and southwest corners of the state, Madonna said.

1. a margin of error of +/- 6% isn't a good poll to begin with

4. My thought exactly

 

That margin of error is ridiculous. Check the 538 forecast for a more complete picture of the Pennsylvania race. Pennsylvania is by no means a run away for Biden, but he is leading.

2. These polls waver, but they still show Biden ahead.

The majority of voters donít want anymore muddled/halfass responses on covid from trump.

There wonít any reward from the electorate to trump for the shitty job he is doing!!

Trump needs to go the fuck away!!
