Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden has a 9-point lead over President Trump in the critical state of Pennsylvania, according to polling released on Thursday.
Mr. Biden held a 50% to 41% lead over Mr. Trump among registered voters, according to the Franklin & Marshall College poll.
Thirty-eight percent of voters said Mr. Trump is doing an “excellent” or “good” job, compared to 9% who said he is doing a “fair” job and 52% who said he’s doing a poor job.

The sample of 667 registered voters included 324 Democrats (49%), 271 Republicans (41%) and 72 independents (11%).
The latest voter registration statistics for the state have Democrats comprising 47% of the total count and Republicans making up 38% of the rolls.
