Clinton, Trump Deadlocked in Three Swing States
Hillary Clinton continues to poll poorly against Donald Trump in three swing states.
The Hill reports:
Clinton and Trump are deadlocked in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, according to the Quinnipiac University survey released early Tuesday.
“Six months from Election Day, the presidential races between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the three most crucial states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, are too close to call,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.
“At this juncture, Trump is doing better in Pennsylvania than the GOP nominees in 2008 and 2012. And the two candidates are about where their party predecessors were at this point in Ohio and Florida.”
Clinton leads Trump by 1 point in Florida, 43 to 42 percent, for the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee.
She also edges Trump in Pennsylvania, with 43 percent to the billionaire’s 42 percent.
Trump has a slightly larger lead over Clinton in Ohio, however, notching 43 percent to the Democratic presidential front-runner’s 39 percent.
Quinnipiac University questioned 1,051 Florida voters from April 27 to May 8. Its poll has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
Its latest survey of 1,042 Ohio voters took place during the same time period and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points. The polling firm’s sampling of 1,077 Pennsylvania voters also has a margin of error of 3 points.
Trump, meanwhile, became the presumptive GOP presidential nominee after a strong showing in Indiana’s Republican primary last week, knocking rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich out of the race.
