September 28 - October 2, 2016 Franklin & Marshall College Poll

The September 2016 Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania shows that Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump 47% to 38% among likely voters. More voters continue to believe Secretary Clinton rather than Mr. Trump has the experience to be president, is better prepared to handle foreign policy issues, and has the character and judgment to be president. Voters are evenly divided on which candidate has the ability to fix the country’s economic problems and which candidate will change government policies to make voters’ lives better. Secretary Clinton’s favorable ratings have rebounded to about where they were after the Democratic Party convention, 47% favorable, while Mr. Trump’s favorable ratings have also returned to their late July level of 32%. Survey indicators from this poll show the candidates’ standing in the post-debate race is similar to where they stood after the political party conventions in late July.

​The Franklin & Marshall College Poll is produced in conjunction with the Philadelphia Daily News, WGAL-TV (South Central PA), Pittsburgh Tribune Review, WTAETV (Pittsburgh), WPVITV6/ABC (Philadelphia), Times-Shamrock Newspapers, Harrisburg PatriotNews, and Lancaster Newspapers. This survey may used in whole or in part, but must contain the reference that it was conducted at Franklin & Marshall College.
