Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 7 points in Pennsylvania, according to a new poll released Thursday — the second survey this week showing Clinton with a high single-digit lead over Trump in the Keystone State.

The Franklin and Marshall College poll finds Clinton ahead of Trump 47% to 40% among likely voters, which represents a slight decline from a similar poll taken just after the Democratic National Convention (when she led 49% to 38%).
The new numbers are consistent with another Pennsylvania poll from this week — a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday found Clinton leading Trump 48% to 40%.
But in a four-way matchup including third-party candidates, Clinton's lead narrows to 41% over Trump's 38%, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7% and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 2%.
The poll also has a much higher share of undecideds than other polls do at this stage, with 13% say they don't know who they would support.
Clinton's favorability has suffered a steep decline from her post-convention bounce. The new poll finds Clinton with a 38% favorable/54% unfavorable rating among registered voters, down from 47% favorable/49% unfavorable in July.
The Franklin and Marshall College poll of Pennsylvania was conducted between August 25 and 29, and surveyed 736 Pennsylvania registered voters and 496 likely voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 points for registered voters, and plus or minus 5.6 points for likely voters.
