Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are running neck-and-neck in Pennsylvania, according to a poll released this week that showed Mrs. Clinton could still have some work to do in winning over supporters of Sen. Bernard Sanders in the state.


In a four-way contest, Mrs. Clinton was at 41 percent, Mr. Trump was at 40 percent, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson was at 6 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein was at 3 percent, according to the poll released Wednesday by the Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling.


In a head-to-head match-up, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump were tied at 44 percent apiece.


In the one-on-one contest, Mr. Trump had a 79 percent to 8 percent lead among Republicans, while Mrs. Clinton had a 75 percent to 15 percent lead among Democrats. Independents broke for Mr. Trump, 43 percent to 36 percent.


Mr. Sanders, meanwhile, held a 12-point lead over Mr. Trump head-to-head, 51 percent to 39 percent, including a 79 percent to 10 percent lead among Democrats.


Among those who said they support Mr. Sanders in the one-on-one contest against Mr. Trump, 72 percent said they support Mrs. Clinton in the general election, with 10 percent opting for Mr. Trump, 6 percent choosing Ms. Stein, 4 percent going with Mr. Johnson, and 9 percent undecided.
