Swing State Poll: Most Voters Don’t Think Hillary Clinton Is ‘Honest and Trustworthy’

• March 31, 2015 4:34 pm


Bad news for Hillary Clinton: Her favorability rating continues to fall, and a recent Quinnipiac poll of swing states (Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania) found that most voters would not describe her as "honest and trustworthy."

Clinton’s favorability ratings in these key states do not bode well, especially considering increased public exposure (e.g., a presidential campaign) tends to have a negative impact on her popularity.

Clinton continues to lead most of her prospective GOP challengers, but not by much. She fails to crack 50 percent against any challenger, and is even lagging behind some GOP candidates in certain states:

Jeb Bush


Rand Paul


Marco Rubio


In other words, she’s not exactly trending in the right direction ahead of her widely anticipated presidential campaign announcement.
