HARRISBURG, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — A new Quinnipiac University poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden leads all Democrats – and President Donald Trump – in a survey of Pennsylvania voters. 

In the primary, the Quinnipiac University poll shows Biden is favored by 39 percent of Democrats. His closest competitor is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, with just 13 percent. In head-to-head match-ups, Biden leads Trump by 11 points, 53 percent to 42 percent. 


Quinnipiac polling analyst Mary Snow says there is a gender gap. 

“Sixty percent of women are backing Biden. Men are really divided," Snow said. 

Forty-nine percent of men support Trump, while 45 percent back Biden. In another head-to-head match-up, Sanders has a seven point advantage over Trump. 

This, despite the fact that more than half of Pennsylvania voters surveyed say they are better off financially than in 2016.
