A month ago, Hillary Clinton was shown in more than one poll to have lost critical ground in a number of swing states when pitted against the top GOP contenders.

That trend continues amid the ongoing server scandal which has taken a serious toll on Hillary’s public reputation among likely voters.

According to Quinnipiac’s latest numbers, Hillary now trails in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, three key states which are essential to winning the White House.

If the election were held today, the numbers argue that Clinton would lose Florida to Donald Trump, Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio by anywhere from two points to 12.

In Pennsylvania, Hillary would lose both to Bush and Rubio by at least three points while in Ohio she would lose to Rubio by two.

The trend reflects a slide in polls conducted in the early primary states as well in which she has dropped as low as 40% against fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire.
