Donald Trump - Up Arrow (200x200)New poll shows Trump leading Clinton in key swing states

July 13, 2016

Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton in Florida and has a lead in the swing state of Pennsylvania, according to a new poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University.

Trump leads Clinton, 42 to 39 percent, in Florida in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. That’s an 11-point swing from last month, when Clinton led 47 to 39 percent.

Trump has also retaken the lead from Clinton in Pennsylvania, where he is now up 43 to 41 percent. Last month, Clinton held a slim lead, 42 to 41 percent.

The pair remains tied in Ohio, where Republicans will gather to formally nominate Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week. Trump and Clinton each get 41 percent apiece there. In the poll last month, each won 40 percent.


Trump sees a bigger lead over Clinton in each of the states when third-party candidates are factored in: He leads Clinton by 5 points in Florida, 41 to 36 percent, with 7 percent going for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and 4 percent for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

With the third-party candidates in the mix, Trump takes a 1-point lead over Clinton in Ohio, 37 to 36 percent, with Johnson at 7 percent and Stein at 6 percent. In Pennsylvania, Trump leads Clinton by 6 points, 40 to 34 percent, with Johnson at 9 percent and Stein at 3 percent. (Read More)
