Donald Trump is not only surging in his home state of New York, where he is reaching a jaw dropping 60% according to just released Emerson, Q, and CNN polls, but now he is growing in Pennslyvania, another critical blue collar, swing state that Kasich has claimed he was competitive in.
With almost two weeks until the April 26 primary election, a new poll recently made, shows Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leading against his two opponents among Pennsylvania’s likely Republican voters.
Donald Trump drew support from 35 percent of Republicans in Pennsylvania, according to the Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll. That gives Trump a lead of 8 percentage points over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 28 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 27 percent.
The strongest demographic groups in the poll that supported Trump were men and those without a college degree, and 40% of them claimed that they see him as the candidate most likely to beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the fall general election.
But the poll highlighted a trouble spot for Trump in the general election: While two-thirds of likely Republican voters said they would vote for Trump this fall if he becomes the Republican nominee, 30% said they would choose Clinton, a third-party candidate or wouldn’t vote at all.
