Hillary Clinton not trusted in swing states: Poll

A new poll by the Quinnipiac University has indicated that a majority of swing state voters think Hillary Clinton, the leading Democratic candidate for the 2016 US presidential election, is untrustworthy for the job.

The poll suggests that the former secretary of state has lost a lot of her votes and is no longer in lead compared to Republican candidates.

In the state of Ohio, Clinton is trailing behind Ohio’s Republican Governor John Kasich.

Fifty-four percent of Ohio voters have told the pollsters that Clinton is not honest or trustworthy to lead the country.

“But perhaps more troubling for her than the continuing slide is how she is perceived by voters who continue to say she is not honest and trustworthy,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the poll, said on Wednesday.

A similar 54 percent of the voters in Pennsylvania, another swing state, also prefer other candidates.

In Florida, the situation is more or less the same and 51 percent of voters have doubted Clinton’s truthfulness.
