Quinnipiac University Poll: Biden leads Trump by 8 points in Pennsylvania, 3 in Florida

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/03/biden-leads-trump-pennsylvania-florida-408442

Democratic candidate Joe Biden leads Trump by 8 percentage points 52 percent to 44 percent among likely voters in Pennsylvania, according to a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University. That same poll shows Biden ahead by 3 points 48 percent to 45 percent in Florida, a lead that falls within the survey's margin of error.

The Quinnipiac poll is one of several released in recent days that show Biden has maintained his lead both nationally and in key swing states in the wake of last month's nominating conventions. Trump has denounced polls that show him trailing as "fake," recalling the 2016 election, when he similarly trailed in public polling but was victorious on election night.

In Pennsylvania and Florida, those polled overwhelmingly said they had made up their minds with little chance of changing who they support on Election Day. In Florida, 93 percent of respondents said they were sure of their choice, while 94 percent said so in Pennsylvania.

Among Biden supporters in both states, the majority said their choice was motivated by a distaste for Trump. In Florida, 64 percent of respondents backing Biden said it was because they disliked Trump, and 65 percent said the same among supporters in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, 53 percent of Trump supporters in both states said their choice was motivated by an affinity for the president.

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted from Aug. 28-Sept. 1, reaching 1,235 likely Florida voters and 1,107 likely Pennsylvania voters via both cellphone and landline. The margin of error for the Pennsylvania survey was plus or inus 2.8 percentage points and the margin of error for the Florida results was plus or minus 3 points.

This is great news. From 538 yesterday, Monmouth's poll yesterday had Biden's PA lead at only 3%.
