The poll shows voters are lukewarm about both candidates.

"If there's a difference, the difference is this is a bad year to be a Democrat," said Peter Brown, assistant director of Quinnipiac's polling institute. "She's got an additional hurdle. The hurdle appears to be her association with President Obama."
