Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania

A Quinnipiac University poll out Tuesday showed Hillary Clinton surging in the swing states of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, where Clinton now leads Donald Trump by 10 points, 52 percent to 42 percent, she gained 12 points since Quinnipiac's poll last month. While her winning margins in Ohio and Florida are slimmer (and in Florida's case, within the poll's margin of error), Clinton still enjoyed healthy gains in both. Clinton got a 4-point boost in Ohio to lead 49 to 45 percent, and in Florida she's now ahead by 1 point, 46 percent to 45 percent, thanks to a 4-point bump since last month.

The poll's margin of error in Florida is plus or minus 3 percentage points. In Ohio and in Pennsylvania, it's plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
