Trump rises in polls in key swing states




WASHINGTON – The Hill is reporting this morning that Hillary Clinton has lost her lead in Florida and Donald Trump now has a slim lead in the swing state of Pennsylvania while tying her in Ohio, according to polling released Wednesday.

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 now leads her, 43 to 41 percent. Last month, Clinton held a slim lead, 42 to 41 percent.

The pair remains tied in Ohio, home of potential Clinton VP pick Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) and the host of the GOP convention next week. Trump and Clinton are at 41 percent apiece there, each drawing 1 point more than a poll last month.

"While there is no definite link between Clinton's drop in Florida and the U.S. Justice Department decision not to prosecute her for her handling of e-mails, she has lost ground to Trump on questions which measure moral standards and honesty," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
