Trump lags in the Pennsylvania polls before the first debate

Donald Trump continues to track Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in nationwide and state polls as the couple prepares for a showdown in tonight’s first televised debate of the campaign.

The president was nine points behind his opponent in two Pennsylvania state polls published last night, one from right Now/ Siena College and the other from Washington Post/ ABC.

The former saw Biden rise 49 percent to 40 percent, while the latter got him a 54 percent to 44 percent lead over Trump.
