A new Quinnipiac poll out Thursday shows Hillary Clinton’s trustworthy and honest numbers continue to be low.

In the swing states of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, the number of people who said the Democratic frontrunner is not honest and trustworthy doubled those who thought she is.

Sixty-four percent of voters in Florida, 60 percent of voters in Ohio, and 63 percent of voters in Pennsylvania found Clinton to not be honest in the survey. Only 32, 34, and 32 percent of voters in each of those states rated her as honest.

Republican Donald Trump polled most poorly among GOP candidates in those areas as well, but he still had higher honesty ratings than Clinton in each of those states.

The high untrustworthy numbers are amid a Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s private email and whether classified information was mishandled.

In the poll, Clinton lost hypothetical matchups to Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) 51-39 in Florida, 42-40 in Ohio and 47-40 in Pennsylvania. She lost to Jeb Bush in Florida (49-38) and Pennsylvania (43-40), while beating him in Ohio (41-39).
