Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 9 points in Pennsylvania, according to a Franklin & Marshall College poll released Tuesday.

Mrs. Clinton had a 9-point, 47 percent to 38 percent lead over Mr. Trump among likely voters in the poll, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 5 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 0 percent.

The survey was conducted from Sept. 28-Oct. 2 - after last Monday’s presidential debate.

Among a broader poll of registered voters, Mrs. Clinton led Mr. Trump by 12 points, 48 percent to 36 percent.

In some surveys leading up to the Sept. 26 debate, Mr. Trump had been running essentially neck-and-neck with Mrs. Clinton in the battleground state, which Republicans are working hard to flip red this year.

In a four-way contest, Mrs. Clinton led Mr. Trump by 4 points in the state, according to a Quinnipiac poll releasedMonday. Head-to-head, Mrs. Clinton led Mr. Trump by 5 points in that poll, which was also taken after the debate.
