In Pennsylvania, Clinton polls at 43 percent, with Trump at 42 percent.

While Clinton holds a 13-point advantage among Florida women — 48 percent to 35 percent — Trump’s lead among men is equally large, at 49 percent to 36 percent.

Trump holds a larger lead among men in Ohio, 51 percent to 36 percent, while women prefer Clinton in the state 43 percent to 36 percent.

Regardless of how they plan to vote, registered voters in all three states gave Trump the approval on matters related to the economy.

Trump also proved to be more trustworthy than Clinton in all three states.  Sixty-six percent of those polled in Florida say that Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, 69 percent in Ohio, and 67 percent in Pennsylvania. Trump’s ratings are 57 percent, 58 percent, and 55 percent respectively.

All polls had a sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points.
