Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush Lead in Early Swing State Poll

Scott Olsen / Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush appear to be 2016 frontrunners in Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio, according to a new Swing State poll out Wednesday from Quinnipiac University.

It’s still early, but the data shows Clinton has more of a lead, though she also doesn’t have as many potential rivals to contend with as Jeb Bush.

The former Secretary of State is the choice of more than 50 percent of Democrats in each state, the poll finds. ‚ÄčIf she does not run, Vice President Joe Biden leads the Democratic pack in the three states with tallies ranging from 28 percent to 39 percent.  

Former Florida Gov. Bush gets 32 percent of the state’s Republicans.  In Ohio, it’s current Gov. John Kasich who leads with 14 percent of state Republicans. Scott Walker is next with 11 percent, while Bush and Rand Paul are tied at 10 percent.

In Pennsylvania, Bush gets 12 percent and New Jersey Gov. Christie gets 11 percent of state Republican support, while Clinton leads Democrats with 54 percent.
