Trump leads Hillary in Florida and Pennsylvania in latest Quinnipiac polls.
Did Donald Trump really just surge past Hillary Clinton in two of the election’s most important battlegrounds?
New swing-state polls released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University show Trump leading Clinton in Florida and Pennsylvania and tied in the critical battleground state of Ohio. In three of the states that matter most in November, the surveys point to a race much closer than the national polls, which have Clinton pegged to a significant, mid-single-digit advantage over Trump, suggest.
The race is so close that it’s within the margin of error in each of the three states. Trump leads by three points in Florida, the closest state in the 2012 election, 42 percent to 39 percent. In Ohio, the race is tied, 41 percent to 41 percent. And in Pennsylvania which hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988, Trump leads, 43 percent to 41 percent.
Clinton’s campaign responded to the surveys by cautioning that while the swing states were always expected to be close, the urgent stakes of a possible Trump election remain high.
