As her email scandal drags on, Hillary Clinton has increasingly been seen by voters as a less trustworthy candidate.
That is now confirmed by a recent Quinnipiac poll that found that voters in three key states — Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida — do indeed view her as the least honest and trustworthy of the current leading presidential contenders.
Donald Trump is considered the second-least trustworthy major presidential candidate, according to voters in those three states.
Clinton does continue to hold the lead among Democratic voters in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida.
In Florida, voters say that Clinton is not honest and trustworthy by 59-35 percent. In Ohio, voters split 61-33; and in Pennsylvania, they split 61-34.

Jeff Bechdel, spokesman for the conservative America Rising PAC, said in a statement: “After all the campaign resets and the millions poured into TV ads, Hillary Clinton still finds herself disliked and not trusted by the American people.”
Clinton is set to appear before the House’s select committee on Benghazi on October 22nd.
Trey Gowdy, head of that committee, said: “She’s going to be asked fact-centric questions, and my conclusion is that she will be convinced that this committee proves, for once, that a Washington investigation can be done the right way.”
“She was the secretary of state at all relevant times, so we’d be crazy not to talk to her,” Gowdy added.
