Former President Donald Trump led President Joe Biden by nine points in the president’s home state of Pennsylvania, a new poll shows.
An Emerson College poll released Wednesday found that 45 percent of Pennsylvania registered voters plan to back Trump, the front-runner for the Republican nomination, while 36 percent said they would back Biden.
While Biden represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate for 36 years, he was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and brings up his ties to the commonwealth when campaigning in the Keystone State.
Another 11 percent of Pennsylvania’s registered voters said they would like to vote for someone else, while 8 percent said they were undecided.
The survey found that Pennsylvania’s youngest voters were reluctant to support the 80-year-old Biden — a surprise since Democrats have had a lock on the youth vote for a number of presidential election cycles.

Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, explained that while Biden leads Trump 44 percent to 39 percent among voters under 40, when voters between the ages of 18 and 29 were broken out, they broke for Trump 45 percent to 39 percent .
About half of Trump and Biden’s voters in Pennsylvania said nothing would move them to vote for someone else.
For Trump it is 50 percent and for Biden a slightly larger sum of 53 percent.
The margin of error for the poll was plus or minus 4.7 percent.
Twenty-two percent of Trump voters said they could think of something he could say or do to lose their vote, while 17 percent of Biden’s Pennsylvania voters said they could be moved.
In 2016, Pennsylvania was one of a trio of classic blue states that Trump won to beat Democrat Hillary Clinton and win the White House.
But in 2020, Biden was able to put the commonwealth back in the Democratic column, beating Trump by about 80,000 votes.
When asked about the 2016 and 2020 elections, 61 percent of Pennsylvanians said they thought Trump won fairly in 2016, while a smaller percentage, 52 percent, believed Biden’s victory in 2020 was legitimate.
Republicans were more likely to believe that election fraud existed in 2020 versus Democrats who believed there were problems with the 2016 count.
Sixty percent of Pennsylvania Republicans believe Biden stole the election, while 24 percent think he won fairly.
On the other hand, 53 percent of Pennsylvania Democrats believe Trump won the 2016 election handily, while 32 percent think he stole the election against Clinton.
