Swing-state voters consider Hillary Clinton dishonest and untrustworthy, according to new polls by Quinnipiac University. The surveys show Clinton’s favorability numbers are tanking in pivotal states.

In Florida, Clinton registers a 51 percent unfavorable rate against 44 percent favorable. Some 59 percent of Floridians feel that Clinton is not honest or trustworthy.

In Ohio, she’s down to 56 percent unfavorable and only 38 percent favorable, with 61 percent calling her dishonest or untrustworthy.

In Pennsylvania, she’s at 54 percent unfavorable against 41 percent favorable, with 34 percent calling her dishonest or untrustworthy.

By contrast, potential Democratic candidate Joe Biden and Republican candidate Ben Carson are surging in the very same poll. Donald Trump, however, continues to lead the Republican race in all three states, according to Quinnipiac. 

Breitbart News has extensively reported on Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal, debunking many of the Clinton campaign’s explanations for her use of a private email server that was targeted by international hackers. The FBI and Department of Justice are currently leading an intra-agency investigation into the scandal.
