Word format

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is overwhelming Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the rest of the Democratic primary field, and slowly increasing her lead over New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the Republican front-runner, in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to Quinnipiac University's Swing State Poll, three simultaneous surveys of voters in states that have been pivotal in presidential elections since 1964.

Sen. Clinton's support appears to be as deep as it is wide. In Ohio, 74 percent of her supporters say they are not too likely or not likely at all to change their mind. In Florida, 59 percent of her supporters are unlikely to change their mind; in Pennsylvania it's 56 percent.

Giuliani voters are less committed, as no more than 39 percent in any state say they are unlikely to change their mind.

Clinton and Giuliani dominate their party primaries in each state, even though voters say Obama and Arizona Sen. John McCain are more principled in their decision-making.

Matchups by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds:
  • Florida: Clinton tops Giuliani 46 - 43 percent, breaking a 44 - 44 percent tie September 12;
  • Ohio: Clinton tops Giuliani 46 - 40 percent, compared to 47 - 40 percent September 6;
  • Pennsylvania: Clinton beats Giuliani 48 - 42 percent, up from 46 - 44 percent August 23.
"The news just keeps getting better for Sen. Clinton. She has a Democratic primary lead over Sen. Obama ranging from 27 to 34 points in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania and is widening her margin over the Republican hopefuls in each of those three critical states," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"The candidates who trail Sen. Clinton and hope that they can pry voters away from her should wake up and smell the coffee. Not only is she far, far ahead, but a much greater share of her voters say they are unlikely to change their minds than those committed to other Democrats. This should not be any surprise. Sen. Clinton has been a favorite of Democratic activists for the past 15 years and benefits greatly from being Bill Clinton's wife - since he is probably the most popular Democrat in America," Brown added.

Many Democrats think Clinton has the nomination "locked up," 44 percent in Florida, 43 percent in Ohio and 31 percent in Pennsylvania.

Very few Republican voters think Giuliani has the nomination "locked up," 14 percent in Florida, 11 percent in Ohio and 15 percent in Pennsylvania.

"Mayor Giuliani's lead over his Republican counterparts remains stable, but the vast, vast majority of Republicans don't believe he has the nomination locked up, and even six in ten of his supporters say they are somewhat or very likely to change their mind," Brown said.

Florida Findings

Looking at other possible 2008 presidential matchups in Florida, the Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll finds:
  • Clinton tops McCain 46 - 42 percent, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson 48 - 39 percent and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney 48 - 37 percent;
  • Giuliani bests Obama 42 - 39 percent and edges Edwards 43 - 41 percent;
  • Obama beats Thompson 45 - 36 percent and Romney 43 - 36 percent, but trails McCain 41 - 39 percent;
  • Edwards edges McCain 42 - 40 percent and beats Thompson 44 - 36 percent and Romney 47 - 33 percent.
In a Democratic primary, Clinton gets 51 percent, followed by 17 percent for Obama and 10 percent for John Edwards.

Among Republicans, Giuliani gets 27 percent, with 19 percent for Thompson, 17 percent for Romney and 8 percent for McCain.

  • 43 - 30 percent for McCain;
  • 47 - 27 percent for Obama;
  • 46 - 32 percent for Edwards;

  • 45 - 26 percent for Obama;
  • 47 - 26 percent for Edwards;
  • 23 - 19 percent for Thompson;
  • 19 - 22 percent for Romney. Pennsylvania Results
In other possible 2008 presidential matchups in Pennsylvania:
  • Clinton tops McCain 48 - 41 percent, Thompson 50 - 39 percent and Romney 49 - 37 percent;
  • Giuliani edges Obama 45 - 43 percent and gets 44 percent to Edwards' 43 percent;
  • Obama beats McCain 45 - 41 percent, Thompson 45 - 37 percent and Romney 49 - 33 percent;
  • Edwards tops McCain 47 - 39 percent, Thompson 47 - 34 percent and Romney 49 - 32 percent.
In a Democratic primary, Clinton leads with 41 percent, with 14 percent for Obama and 11 percent for Edwards.

Giuliani leads Republicans with 32 percent, followed by 13 percent each for Thompson and McCain and 8 percent for Romney.

Clinton gets a 51 - 42 percent favorability rating from Pennsylvania voters. Favorability ratings for other contenders are:
  • 51 - 30 percent for Giuliani;
  • 43 - 26 percent for McCain;
  • 48 - 22 percent for Obama;
  • 49 - 27 percent for Edwards;
  • 26 - 21 percent for Thompson;
  • 24 - 23 percent for Romney.
"Fred Thompson is chasing Giuliani in all three states, but his momentum seems to have slowed. Mitt Romney may be a household name in Iowa where he leads the polls, but in the Big 3 of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania he remains far back. He has picked up some support among Republicans in Florida, where he is the only candidate advertising on television," Brown said. Principled Decision Makers

In each state, Obama tops Clinton on the question of "principle," asking whether a candidate makes decisions based on what he or she thinks is right or based on what is popular with voters. Florida voters say 43 - 32 percent that Obama decides on principle rather than popularity; 40 - 34 percent in Ohio and 45 - 29 percent in Pennsylvania.

This compares to Clinton's "principle" scale, negative in each state: 42 - 49 percent in Florida, 39 - 52 percent in Ohio and 40 - 48 percent in Pennsylvania.

Among Republicans, McCain has a higher "principle" rating than Giuliani in each state. McCain's scale is 51 - 29 percent in Florida, 43 - 33 percent in Ohio and 49 - 29 percent in Pennsylvania.

Giuliani's "principle" scale is 43 - 42 percent in Florida, 40 - 40 percent in Ohio and 42 - 41 percent in Pennsylvania.

"Voters say they want politicians with principles, but they don't seem to vote for the candidates who have them," said Brown. "Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain are considered by far the most principled in their decision-making, but they are both far back in their races for their respective party nominations.

"When it comes to the front-runners, voters see Mayor Giuliani as more principled than Sen. Clinton."
