From the London Daily Mail:
Hillary Clinton's perception problems are catching up with her in three key battleground states, a new poll shows, opening the door to Republicans whom voters see as more believable and honest.
The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute surveyed voters in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, and found three of the top-tier GOP presidential candidates would beat her there if the 2016 election were held today.
In a hypothetical 2016 matchup against former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Hillary trails against each of them in all three states.
Quinnipiac didn't ask voters who they would pick if they had to choose between Clinton and billionaire Donald Trump, who leads his party's field according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Monday.
But the pollsters found that Trump, the showman-like politician whom Democrats mock and newspaper editors crave, has an even steeper hill to climb than Hillary herself.
In Iowa, just 33 per cent of voters say they have a favorable impresssion of Clinton, compared to 56 per cent unfavorable. In Colorado that split is 35-56, and in Virginia it's a silghtly more respectable 41-50 – but still 'under water' by 9 points.
Iowa's numbers are especially telling: That 33-56 gap was 45-47 in April, before Clinton's campaign began in earnest and she became a lightning rod for GOP complaints about her ethics.I am not saying she lies, just that if I ever go into the fact-checking business, I am handing out Hillarys, not Pinocchios.
