Marist Poll: Biden +9 In Battleground Pennsylvania

NBC News reports:

 Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by a 9-point margin among likely voters in Pennsylvania, a key swing state where Biden was born, according to a new NBC News/Marist poll. The survey finds that Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, get the support of 53 percent of likely Pennsylvania voters, compared with 44 percent who back Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. In 2016, Trump barely bested Hillary Clinton in the state by less than 1 point.

Among suburban likely voters, Biden leads Trump by nearly 20 points, 58 percent to 39 percent. That’s a significant flip from 2016, when Trump won suburban voters in the state by about 8 points, according to exit polls. Among likely voters with college degrees, Biden also leads, 63 percent to 34 percent. And the Democratic ticket leads among women, 59 percent to 38 percent. Biden has a similar edge among independents, 57 percent to 35 percent.
