According to a recent poll, Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has fallen behind Republican candidates such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in the key swing states of Iowa, Colorado and Virginia.

The results of a Quinnipiac University Poll released on Wednesday, noted that Clinton received negative favorability ratings in each of the three swing states polled, with “35 – 56 percent in Colorado, 33 – 56 percent in Iowa, and 41 – 50 percent in Virginia.”

The poll surveyed 1,231 voters in Colorado, 1,236 voters in Iowa, and 1,209 voters in Virginia, from July 9-20 via interviews on landlines and cell phones.

The poll also found that in several matchups in Iowa and Colorado, fellow Democratic contender and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders “runs as well as, or better than Clinton against Rubio, Bush and Walker,” and that Vice President Joe Biden, who has not announced whether he is running for President in 2016, “does better than Clinton on honesty and on caring about voter needs.”

The National Journal reported that Clinton “lost all three against the president during the 2008 primary season,” and that since February “she’s lost steam in each state against three top potential Republican opponents.”

Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, noted that Clinton has “lost ground in the horserace and on key questions about her honesty and leadership.”

“On being a strong leader, a key metric in presidential campaigns, [Clinton] has dropped four to 10 points depending on the state and she is barely above 50 percent in each of the three states,” said Brown, who added that against Republican contenders such as Bush, Rubio and Walker, Clinton “trails in six matchups and is on the down side of too-close-to call in three.”

Brown added that the recent poll is being compared to a Quinnipiac University from April 9, when Clinton was “clearly ahead in five of the matchups and too-close-to-call in the other four.”

According to the poll, Rubio and Walker have a lead of eight percentage points over Clinton in Iowa, Walker has a lead of nine percentage points in Colorado, and Bush and Walker have a lead of three percentage points in Virginia.

The poll found that in Colorado, 62 percent of voters say Clinton is “not honest and trustworthy,” 52 percent say she has “strong leadership qualities” and 57 percent say that she “does not care about their needs and problems.” Similar results were found on all three categories in both Iowa and Virginia.
