Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are deadlocked in Ohio and close in both Michigan and Pennsylvania, according to Emerson College's first general election poll.

The state-by-state results:

Ohio:

  • Donald Trump 42 percent
  • Hillary Clinton 42 percent
  • Gary Johnson 10 percent
  • Jill Stein 2 percent

Pennsylvania:

  • Clinton 46 percent
  • Trump 43 percent
  • Johnson 7 percent
  • Stein 2 percent

Michigan:

  • Clinton 45 percent
  • Trump 40 percent
  • Johnson 7 percent
  • Stein 3 percent

One demographic that varies wildly between the three states is with millennials:

  • Ohio: Clinton leads Trump by 18 points, 50 percent to 32 percent
  • Pennsylvania: Clinton leads Trump by just 3 points, 42 percent to 39 percent
  • Michigan: Trump leads Clinton by 12, 45 percent to 33 percent

Trump is leading among independent voters in all three Rust Belt states, ranging from a one-point lead in Michigan to a 17-point lead in Ohio; he leads 43 percent to 37 percent in Pennsylvania.

The favorability ratings for each candidate are rather consistent across the three key battleground states, too:

Ohio

  • Trump: 41 percent view favorably; 57 percent view unfavorably
  • Clinton: 42 percent view favorably; 56 percent view unfavorably

Michigan:

  • Trump: 40 percent view favorably; 55 percent view unfavorably
  • Clinton: 45 percent view favorably; 52 percent view unfavorably

Pennsylvania:

  • Trump: 40 percent view favorably; 58 percent view unfavorably
  • Clinton: 42 percent view favorably; 55 percent view unfavorably

The Emerson College Ohio poll was conducted from Aug. 25 to 27; the Michigan and Pennsylvania polls were conducted Aug. 25 to 28. The samples consisted of 800 likely general election voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percent.
