Good News in Swing States

USA Today reports the results of a Quinnipiac Poll. These will be pleasing to Republicans.
A new poll has good news for Donald Trump in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Trump is either slightly ahead or tied with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in those three key battlegrounds, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released Wednesday.

"He has wiped out Hillary Clinton's lead in Florida; is on the upside of too-close to call races in Florida and Pennsylvania and is locked in a dead heat in Ohio," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Polls go up and polls go down, much can happen between now and November. Elections are hard to predict under ideal circumstances, and the circumstances this year are far from ideal. Both major party candidates are, in different ways, damaged goods.
