Trump up by 6 Points in Pennsylvania
The latest poll for Pennsylvania by Franklin & Marshall College has placed Donald Trump at the top of the Republican pack.
Trump led the Republican Party with 22 percent of the vote, followed by Marco Rubio with 16 percent, John Kasich with 15 percent, and Ted Cruz with 12 percent.
The Hill reports:
Trump’s support is largely unchanged in the new poll, which found him with 24 percent support in January and 23 percent support in October.
Kasich is up by 12 percentage points since January, and Rubio is up 5 over that same span.
Twenty-five percent of respondents said they are still undecided.
Although Trump leads the field, he is not seen very favorably in the state.
Just 45 percent of Pennsylvania Republicans said they view Trump positively, compared to 42 percent who have a negative impression of the businessman.
Rubio had the highest favorability splits, with 61 percent viewing the Florida senator favorably, compared to 19 percent unfavorably.
Pollsters surveyed 371 Republicans from Feb. 13 to 21. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
