The Politico website reported Donald Trump has surged past Hillary Clinton in a Quinnipiac poll in key swing states for the November 8, 2016 U.S. presidential election. Trump is leading Clinton in the swing states of Florida and Pennsylvania, which often determine the winner of the election. Trump is also tied with Clinton in the key swing state Ohio. Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio are considered must win states for any U.S. presidential candidate.
Clinton's campaign has taken a serious hit after the FBI Director, James Comey, called her a very careless woman who broke U.S. law, but because she is rich and famous, the so-called law enforcement agency will not charge her with the crimes appropriate for her criminal misconduct. Clinton deliberately violated U.S. law in the mishandling of classified information, via maintaining a private email server, with no computer security. Clinton's server ended up hacked by communist nations. Clinton's conduct exposed a large amount of U.S. top secret information to America's rivals.
Swing-state stunner: Trump has edge in key states
07/13/16 06:00 AM EDT - Did Donald Trump really just surge past Hillary Clinton in two of the election's most important battlegrounds? New swing-state polls released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University show Trump leading Clinton in Florida and Pennsylvania — and tied in the critical battleground state of Ohio. In three of the states that matter most in November, the surveys point to a race much closer than the national polls, which have Clinton pegged to a significant, mid-single-digit advantage over Trump, suggest.
The race is so close that it's within the margin of error in each of the three states. Trump leads by three points in Florida — the closest state in the 2012 election — 42 percent to 39 percent. In Ohio, the race is tied, 41 percent to 41 percent. And in Pennsylvania — which hasn't voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988 — Trump leads, 43 percent to 41 percent.
