The race for president is tightening in Pennsylvania

Just hours before the first presidential debate, a new Morning Call/Muhlenberg College Poll shows a narrow gap between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump amid rising support for Trump within his own party.

Clinton still leads Trump in a head-to-head match up, but only by three points.

A similar poll a week ago had Clinton up by nine points.

In a four-way matchup, with the other two 3rd party candidates, Clinton's lead is only two points.

Pennsylvania's competitive U.S. Senate race also shifted in the GOP's favor, with Republican Sen. Pat Toomey on top by one point over Democratic challenger Katie McGinty.
