It's the swing states, stupid! Oh, and just to be perfectly clear FLORIDA is one of them.

Harrisburg - Sen. John McCain may have to worry about his chances in Pennsylvania, while Sen. Hillary Clinton can feel emboldened by her performance in key swing states.

A new Quinnipiac University poll Thursday shows Mr. McCain faring behind both Sen. Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama in Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Clinton can tout her general election advantages, indicating she may have a better chance in the fall than presumptive Democratic nominee Mr. Obama.

The poll shows her besting the Republican challenger in the three largest swing states in the November election. Since 1960, no president has won office without winning two of these three: Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.

The survey shows Clinton, D-N.Y., leading McCain, R-Ariz., in all three, while Obama, D-Ill., only beats McCain in the Keystone State.
