Bob Casey Holds Lead Over GOP Rival in Pennsylvania Senate Race: Poll

Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey, a Democrat, maintains a lead over his Republican challenger, David McCormick, six months ahead of Election Day, as per a recent Emerson College/The Hill swing state poll released on Tuesday.

According to the poll, 46 percent of Pennsylvania voters expressed their support for Casey, while 42 percent favored McCormick. The remaining 12 percent stated that they were undecided.

This gap between the two candidates has remained consistent since the previous Emerson College/The Hill poll conducted last month, where Casey led McCormick by 45 percent to 41 percent. However, the percentage of undecided voters has slightly increased from 14 percent to 12 percent.

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report categorizes the race as “lean Democratic.”

Although Casey holds an advantage in Pennsylvania, the presidential race in the state remains tight. Another poll conducted by Emerson College and The Hill indicated that former President Trump leads President Biden by 47 to 45 percent, which falls within the margin of error. Eight percent of voters stated that they were undecided.

Pennsylvania is considered a swing state, having been won by Trump in 2016 by a narrow margin and then by Biden in 2020 with a similarly slim lead.

The Emerson College/The Hill poll surveyed 1,000 registered Pennsylvania voters from April 25 to 29 and carries a credibility interval, akin to the margin of error in a poll, of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
