For the first time in this election cycle, Hillary Clinton is topped by several Republican candidates in key battleground states according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. The winners on the GOP side are Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Scott Walker. The other news from this poll is that, among all Republicans, Donald Trump currently performs the worst against Hillary.

Report from CNN:

Hillary Clinton trails three top Republican presidential candidates in head-to-head matchups in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, a new survey shows.

The latest Quinnipiac University swing state polling released Wednesday shows the Democratic frontrunner trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of those states.

The biggest loser, the polls found, is Donald Trump, who has surged to the front of a crowded Republican primary field nationally but is viewed unfavorably, by almost a 2-to-1 margin, by voters in those states.

The results offered more indications that Clinton has a problem: Voters say they don’t trust her.

In Colorado, only 34% of voters said they see Clinton as honest and trustworthy while 62% said they don’t. In Iowa, the numbers were 33% to 59% — a drop from 45% to 47% in April. And in Virginia, Clinton did best, at 39% saying they trust her to 55% saying they don’t.

“She has lost ground in the horse race and on key questions about her honesty and leadership,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, in a release accompanying Wednesday morning’s results. “On being a strong leader, a key metric in presidential campaigns, she has dropped four to 10 points depending on the state and she is barely above 50% in each of the three states.”

The polls were conducted July 9-20 in the three states, with more than 1,200 voters and a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points in each state.

As opposed to the national polls, the state polls are what really matters when it comes to which candidates are the strongest. In this case, Hillary has lost some ground as more and more voters tune into the race. She had been handily controlling the swing states up to this point. Obviously it’s still very early, even though we’ve been covering this for a year already.

Watching the polls over the next thirty days, which includes the first GOP debate on August 6, may shed some light on the direction of the race into the fall.


  1. The earlier there’s a serious Democratic challenger, the more chance Democrats have next November. Hillary has a core base of support, but I don’t see that increasing, since everyone knows her, and everyone has formed an opinion.

    • I don’t see any way for her support to increase right now. Her campaign has been, at best, very strange. She is surrounded by controversy. She won’t answer questions and controls the media like cattle with rope. She’s been caught in too many lies and misleading statements. This is not a person people can easily identify with.

      But then, at the same time, the only other Democrat with significant support is Bernie Sanders. Socialist policy seems to be popular with the younger folk (before they get life experience and a real income), but there’s enough older centrists in the Democrat party and enough Independent folks that I don’t see an admitted socialist – even an openly honest one like Bernie – having a chance in the general election.

      My instincts are telling me that the eventual nominee for the Democrats won’t be any of the people running right now. O’Malley can’t even stand by the statement that “all lives matter” which shows how little spine he has. Someone else is going to swoop in.

      On the other side of things, oh my god. How many candidates are there going to be before this is all over? I don’t even understand some of them. Do people like Huckabee and Lindsey Graham honestly think they have a chance? It boggles the mind.

        • Maybe so, but we’ll see. I don’t understand why the Democrat party would want to run someone who is unpopular in the polls, not just “non-popular”, as it were, like some of the other candidates.

          • The Democratic Party is sort of stuck with Hillary. They’re in the situation the Republican Party always used to have–number two last time gets the nomination. But they have the added problem that Bill Clinton is the most popular Democrat around. People see Hillary as sort of “the queen,” and being against her is being against him. That’s the real reason so few people are running on the Democratic side.

            By the way, the Democratic Party has been the “Democratic Party” since Thomas Jefferson. Calling them the “Democrat Party” is like calling you “Kestrel Black.” It’s incorrect and immature.

      • Kestrel Blackfeather — an astute observation.

        Reality is that the Dems have no-one that can win the Prez, while the Repubs think any of them can win it because of this.

  2. FBI investigating Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail setup!

    I’ve stated that Hillary has ZERO chance of becoming US President over a year ago — since her run will bring up all the Clintons’ dirty laundry. And if there is any justice left in America, she’ll land in jail where her despicable ugliness belongs!

    Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of this vile creature — now that the FBI is probing her illegal actions!

    Key points:

    “The inquiries are bringing to light new information about Clinton’s use
    of the system and the lengths she went to install a private channel of
    communication outside government control — a setup that has emerged as a
    major issue in her presidential campaign.”

    “Clinton’s private server arrangement put her discussions with some
    aides outside the reach of government investigators, congressional
    committees and courts seeking public records from the State Department.”

  3. Hillary’s popularity tanks!

    *Just 37 percent of all Americans have a positive view of Clinton, versus 48 percent who have a negative view (-11)*

    The sad part is that Democrats (American Idiots) still want her ugliness — “The good news for her in the poll: Clinton continues to lead the Democratic field by more than 30 points”!?!? How sick and disturbing is that…?

  4. No wonder Hillary is going down!
