BIDEN TOPS TRUMP IN FLORIDA, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA,


QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY SWING STATE POLL FINDS
---

FLORIDA: Biden 45 Trump 42


OHIO: Biden 48 Trump 38
PENNSYLVANIA: Biden 48 Trump 40
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are clear winners in the Democratic
and Republican primaries in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but Vice President Joseph Biden
runs as well as or better than Clinton against top Republicans in general election matchups in
these key swing states, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.
While they lead in the race for the nomination, Clinton and Trump have the worst overall
favorability ratings among all voters of any of the leading candidates, and the lowest scores for
being honest and trustworthy, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll
finds. The Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no
candidate has won the presidential race without taking at least two of these three states.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida both run better than
Trump against Clinton, Biden or U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
If Trump makes a third-party run, results are:
Florida Clinton at 37 percent, with 36 percent for Bush and 19 percent for Trump;
Ohio Clinton over Bush 37 27 percent, with 23 percent for Trump;
Pennsylvania Clinton tops Bush 37 29 percent, with Trump at 24 percent.
Vice President Joseph Biden, who is spending his time in seclusion, contemplating whether to
take on Secretary Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries for president, has some new
information to consider, said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University
Poll.
In head-to-head matchups against the three leading contenders for the Republican nomination,
he runs as well or slightly better than she does.

Hillary Clintons poll numbers are like a leaky faucet: dripdrip... drip. She is now getting less
than half the vote in all three states Democratic primaries, Brown added.
Perhaps most telling is how poorly she scores when all voters in these three key states are asked
about her empathy, honesty and temperament. In Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania she averages a
negative 37 55 percent favorability. Donald Trump is in the same leaky boat, averaging a
negative 34 53 percent favorability. The good news for Clinton is that she remains far ahead of
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Biden in the three Democratic primary contests.
The first Republican debate mattered, said Brown. Gov. Jeb Bush got middling debate grades
and slips in the GOP horse race. Yet he does very well when voters rate the leading Republican
candidates on personal characteristics. He scores best on honesty, empathy and temperament to
handle an international crisis, while finishing a close second to Trump on leadership.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker gets very low debate grades and all but disappears from the
Republican primary list.
Florida
Clinton has 48 percent of Florida Democrats, followed by 15 percent for Sanders and 11
percent for Biden, with 17 percent undecided.
Among Republicans, Trump gets 21 percent, with 17 percent for Bush and 11 percent
each for Rubio and Ben Carson. No other candidate tops 7 percent, with 8 percent undecided.
In general election matchups in Florida:
Bush tops Clinton 49 38 percent and Rubio leads 51 39 percent while Trump gets 43 percent
to Clintons 41 percent.
Bush leads Biden 51 38 percent, with Rubio up 48 42 percent. Biden gets 45 percent to
Trumps 42 percent.
Sanders trails Bush 54 35 percent and loses 52 36 percent to Rubio and 45 41
percent to Trump.
Clinton gets a negative 37 55 percent favorability rating and voters say 64 32 percent
she is not honest and trustworthy. Biden gets a split 44 43 percent favorability rating and
voters say 52 40 percent he is honest and trustworthy.
Trump gets a negative 36 50 percent favorability rating and voters say 53 39 percent
he is not honest and trustworthy. Bush gets a 53 39 percent favorability and voters say 64 28
percent he is honest and trustworthy. Rubio gets a 52 35 percent favorability and voters say 58
30 percent he is honest and trustworthy. In the battle of Floridians, former Gov. Jeb Bush is
holding off U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, and the former mentor to Rubio scores higher when voters
rate the two mens personal qualities, Brown said.

Ohio
Ohio Democrats go 47 percent for Clinton, 17 percent for Sanders and 14 percent for
Biden, with 12 percent undecided.
Gov. John Kasich gets 27 percent of Republicans, with 21 percent for Trump and 7
percent each for Rubio and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. No other candidate tops 6 percent, with
11 percent undecided.
In general election matchups:
Clinton gets 41 percent to 39 percent for Bush. Rubio has 42 percent to Clintons 40 percent
while Clinton tops Trump 43 38 percent.
Biden gets 42 percent to Bushs 39 percent and gets 42 percent to Rubios 41 percent. Biden
beats Trump 48 38 percent.
Sanders trails Bush 42 36 percent and loses 42 34 percent to Rubio. Sanders gets 42
percent to Trumps 40 percent.
Ohio voters give Clinton a negative 36 54 percent favorability rating and say 60 34
percent she is not honest and trustworthy. Biden gets a split 45 42 percent favorability rating
and voters say 59 33 percent he is honest and trustworthy.
Trump gets a negative 32 54 percent favorability rating and voters say 53 37 percent
he is not honest and trustworthy. Bush gets a negative 39 43 percent favorability and voters
say 54 35 percent he is honest and trustworthy. Rubio gets a 40 21 percent favorability and
voters say 45 24 percent he is honest and trustworthy.
Ohio is important, but if Gov. John Kasich is going to be a serious candidate for the
Republican nomination he must broaden his appeal, said Brown. In Pennsylvania and Florida
more than half the voters dont know enough about Kasich to have an opinion about him.
Pennsylvania
Clinton leads among Pennsylvania Democrats with 45 percent, followed by 19 percent
for Sanders and 17 percent for Biden, with 12 percent undecided.
Trump leads among Republicans with 24 percent, followed by 13 percent for Carson and
10 percent for Rubio. No other candidate tops 7 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
In general election matchups:
Bush gets 43 percent to 40 percent for Clinton. Rubio tops Clinton 47 40 percent while
Clinton beats Trump 45 40 percent.
Bush is at 43 percent to Bidens 42 percent. Rubio has 44 percent to Bidens 41 percent.

Biden beats Trump 48 40 percent.
Sanders trails Bush 44 36 percent and loses 45 33 percent to Rubio. Sanders gets 44
percent to Trumps 41 percent.
Pennsylvania voters give Clinton a negative 38 55 percent favorability rating and say
63 32 percent she is not honest and trustworthy. Biden gets a split 46 43 percent favorability
rating and voters say 61 31 percent he is honest and trustworthy.
Trump gets a negative 34 55 percent favorability rating and voters say 53 40 percent
he is not honest and trustworthy. Bush gets a divided 41 43 percent favorability and voters say
54 36 percent he is honest and trustworthy. Rubio gets a 46 22 percent favorability and
voters say 49 23 percent he is honest and trustworthy.
Donald Trump may have the raw horserace numbers, but below the surface there is a looming
problem: Pennsylvania voters give him stunningly bad numbers on trust, honesty and
favorability, said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
And although she is the Democratic front runner, Hillary Clintons overall numbers are
not much better than Trumps.
Who gets the love? The one guy who hasnt declared. Vice President Joseph Biden, a
Scranton boy made good, is perhaps becoming a more important player in the 2016 presidential
race, with a solid grip on the from the gut support of Pennsylvanians.
