The Clinton campaign team better get out the paper bags because they might be needing some breathing assistance after hearing the latest poll results.
The Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll shows Trump in a neck-in-neck race with Hillary in Florida and Pennsylvania. But, it only gets worse for Hillary, who’s trailing Trump by 4 points in the crucial state of Ohio.
good morning, Q poll. FL: Clinton 43 – Trump 42.
OH: Clinton 39 – Trump 43.
PA: Clinton 43 – Trump 42

Taken from Quinnipiac:
“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.”
“This election may be good for divorce lawyers. The gender gap is massive and currently benefits Trump,” Brown added. “In Pennsylvania, Clinton’s 19-point lead among women matches Trump’s 21-point margin among men. In Ohio, she is up 7 points among women but down 15 points with men. In Florida she is up 13 points among women but down 13 points among men.”
“Trump would do a better job handling the economy, voters say. He also would do a better job handling terrorism, voters in Florida and Ohio say. Pennsylvania voters are divided.
“By wide margins, voters in all three states say Clinton is more intelligent than Trump and by smaller margins, voters in all three states say she has higher moral standards.”
Of course, it’s still early in the game, and Trump isn’t faring as well against Bernie Sanders, but Trump supporters know the Democrat establishment will never let Sanders become the nominee.

Others questioned the validity of the poll due to demographics and contradictory crosstabs:
Q poll swing state samples show smaller Hispanic and black electorates in 2016–this is highly unlikely.

In the “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” category goes Quinnipiac’s assumption of 2016 electorate whiter/older than 2012

Bizarre QPoll crosstabs:
1) Hillary has highest moral character but is least trustworthy.
2) Trump is worst in a crisis but best leader.
