Donald Trump is in trouble in two key swing states.
New polling released Thursday shows Democrat Hillary Clinton up 11 percentage points in Pennsylvania and 15 in New Hampshire.
Both states are regarded as among a handful that are up for grabs.
As Trump, the Republican nominee, faces falling poll numbers nationwide, that tumble is apparent in the states he needs most.
The Franklin & Marshall College Poll of Pennsylvania shows Clinton up 49 to 38 percent.
“The Democratic convention appeared to benefit Secretary Clinton more than the Republican convention benefited Mr. Trump,” a poll analysis said.
Sixty-two percent of those who watched the Democratic convention, which ended a week ago, said they were more likely to vote for Clinton. Forty percent who watched the Republican convention a week earlier said they were more likely to vote for Trump.
In New Hampshire, Clinton leads Trump 47 to 32 percent, according to a new WBUR poll.
In a four-way race that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, Clinton’s lead is up to 17.
A big reason Clinton is ahead is that Democrats are rallying around her.
“After all the hand-wringing about whether Bernie Sanders supporters would end up supporting Hillary Clinton, she’s now getting 86 percent of the Democratic vote,” said Steve Koczela, the president of the MassINC Polling Group, which conducted the survey. “Donald Trump, on the other hand, has slipped a bit among Republicans.”
Both polls were conducted last Friday through Monday.
