Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton beats out seven possible presidential candidates in the GOP by significant margins in the important swing state of Ohio, according to the latest poll from the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

In a matchup against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Clinton sweeps every candidate by double digits except Ryan, whom she surpasses by 9 points — 49 percent to 40 percent.

The poll was taken Feb. 12-17 of 1,370 registered voters with a margin of error of 2.7 percent points.

In previous Quinnipiac polls in the Buckeye State, Clinton and Christie were in a dead heat. In the newest poll in Ohio, Clinton leads the New Jersey governor by 13 points, 49 percent to 36 percent.

In a nationwide Quinnipaic poll on the 2016 presidential race taken in January, Clinton beat Christie by an eight point margin — 46 percent to 38 percent. By comparison, in a poll taken in December, the New Jersey Republican beat the former first lady by 1 percentage point.

The Bridge-gate scandal in New Jersey continues to take a significant toll on Christie's presidential chances.

"The George Washington Bridge is not in Ohio, but voters there seem very aware of its traffic problems — and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's traffic problems," Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

Missing from the Ohio poll is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who some have said could take Christie's spot as a top Republican contender for president.
