Are all these polls showing Hillary dominating the potential GOP field getting boring? Too bad...because there was another one Tuesday by Quinnipiac, this time of three key swing states.
Here's a quick summation:
In Pennsylvania, she crushes all Republicans by an incredible 15-20 points...with the exception of Chris Christie, who manages to be down by only 11 points.
In Ohio, she's up by 11-15 points on all of them except their current governor John Kasich, whom she's besting by one point at 44%-43%...but he doesn't appear to be running right now anyway.
In Florida, she's beating them all by 10-18 points (Rubio included), except for their former governor Jeb Bush, who she is also beating by a point at 44%-43%.
A few takeaways:
-Is Pennsylvania even a swing state in 2016? These are the kind of margins we'd expect in New Jersey.
-These are awful numbers for "electable establishment candidate" Jeb Bush. It even looks like his home state will be a struggle, and Ohio looks just about lost before it even begins. Though if Kasich becomes his running mate, it would help a little.
-Even If Kasich runs and somehow wins the nomination, Ohio would also be a struggle for him as well...and I can only guess that Florida would be fairly out of reach. Though again, Bush as his running mate would help.
-Wait a second...Kasich/Bush 2016? Yeah right!
-At this very early stage, a Bush/Kasich ticket seems like their only hope...but judging from these numbers, winning both Ohio and Florida seems like a long shot (running mates usually don't make a huge difference...ask Paul Ryan).
-Ohio and Florida probably won't be required for Hillary anyway, because she'll hit 270 with the Kerry states plus New Mexico, Nevada and Virginia.
