Trump edges out Biden in Pennsylvania, leads with independents by 14 points: poll
Trump also remains the overwhelming favorite to claim the state in the Republican Party primary.
Former President Donald Trump holds a narrow lead over President Joe Biden in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania.
The Republican ex-commander-in-chief claimed the support of 47% of registered voters in the commonwealth, compared to 46% who backed Biden in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. The survey's +/- 2.5% margin of error means the race remains a statistical tie.
Notably, Trump enjoys a clear lead among the state's independent voters, with 51% backing him compared to 37% who favored Biden.
Trump also remains the overwhelming favorite to claim the state in the Republican Party primary. 49% of Republicans backed him for the nomination, compared to 25% who preferred Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. No other candidate received double digit support.
On the flip side, Biden challengers Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson earned the support of 17% and 5% of Democrats respectively. Biden took 71% support among Keystone State Democrats.
Biden was underwater with all voters in the state. 39% approved of his handling of the country while 57% did not.
Conducted between June 22-26, the survey questioned 1,584 self-identified Pennsylvania registered voters, including 614 Republicans and 664 Democrats.
