Latest Q Poll: “Ominous For Hillary Clinton”

A new batch of polls from potential battleground states is spelling more bad news for Hillary Clinton. Just last week, a set of polls from Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania were bearing bad news. The takeaway from last week’s polls was “in no state do voters say she’s honest and trustworthy.”

Today’s poll is no better. Clinton’s favorability is down in nearly every state from February polls, and again, voters do not find her honest and trustworthy:

Voters in each state say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy. Her overall favorability has dropped significantly in Colorado and Iowa…

Peter A. Brown, the assistant director of  the Quinnipiac University Poll added his dismal outlook for Clinton:

“Ominous for Hillary Clinton is the broad scope of the movement today compared to her showing in Quinnipiac University’s mid-February survey. It isn’t just one or two Republicans who are stepping up; it’s virtually the entire GOP field that is running better against her.

“That’s why it is difficult to see Secretary Clinton’s slippage as anything other than a further toll on her image from the furor over her e-mail.”

“In all three of these states, more, and in Colorado many more, registered voters say she is not honest and trustworthy,” Brown added. “Voters do think she is a strong leader – a key metric – but unless she can change the honesty perception, running as a competent but dishonest candidate has serious potential problems.”
