Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is starting her likely presidential campaign ahead of many of her Republican rivals in a trio of key swing states, according to a new poll.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday showed Clinton beating most Republican contenders in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Republicans with home-state advantages fare better against the presumptive Democratic front-runner. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is tied with Clinton in his state, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich is tied with Clinton in his state.
But Clinton trounces three other potential candidates—New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee—in all three states by double-digits. No candidate has won the presidency without securing at least two of these three swing states since 1960.
The survey, conducted Jan. 22-Feb. 1, has a margin of error of 3.2 percentage points in Florida and Ohio, and 3.3 percentage points in Pennsylvania.
