Clinton and Trump are in Dead Heat in the Swing States

Pennsylvania's contest only changed within the margin of error, going from a 42/41 Hillary edge to 43/41 Trump.

The polling shows the presidential race is a seesaw contest in Florida, with constantly shifting ups and downs. And it bolsters what analysts and supporters of both candidates have been arguing, that either Clinton or Trump could win Florida's 29 electoral votes in November.

Previous Quinnipiac polls had shown Clinton with a 47 percent to 39 percent lead in Florida and a slim 42 percent to 41 percent advantage in Pennsylvania.

The poll was conducted by phone July 7 through Sunday, sampling 801 registered Wisconsin voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.

-And in Ohio, Trump and Clinton are tied at 40 percent.

Partisan leanings play a big role for people in the two major parties.

They were tied at 40 percent support each in a June Quinnipiac poll.

Donald Trump has overtaken pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in new polls in four key swing states after the Federal Bureau of Investigation failed to charge Clinton in relation to her controversial and possibly illegal use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.

"Thank you Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania!"

The recent numbers are a dramatic shift from the most recent Quinnipiac poll released June 21.

In the race for president, Democrat Hillary Clinton maintained a lead over Republican Donald Trump among registered Wisconsin voters according to the Marquette University Law School Poll released Wednesday. Johnson and Stein only siphoned single-digit percentages of the vote in the three swing states. But he said Clinton lost ground to Trump on questions that measure moral standards and honesty.

"Right now, what my job is to do to make sure that Hillary Clinton is elected president, that we defeat Trump and come up with a set of principles and an agenda that speaks to the needs of working families", he said. In June, Clinton led Trump by one point.

The billionaire real estate mogul is perceived to be "more honest and trustworthy" than Clinton in each of those swing states. He has a 13-point advantage in the latest poll, up from a 3-point advantage in June. His campaign made some strong inroads and at times even threatened Clinton's road to the nomination but ultimately faltered after Clinton gained the support of most of the so called super delegates.

Voters don't particularly care for either candidate.

The April version of that poll had a wider margin for Clinton, 54 percent to 39 percent.

In Ohio, the poll found Trump at 37 percent compared to Clinton's 36 percent, with seven percent for Johnson and six percent for Stein. Non-white voters favor Clinton 56 to 21 percent. White voters go Republican 46 - 35 percent, while non-white voters go Democratic 69 - 15 percent. Clinton's unfavorable rating is only slightly better at 58 percent - unchanged from last month.
