Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are engaged in a tight race in four crucial battleground states, according to a new CNN/ORC poll released on Wednesday.

In Pennsylvania:

In Arizona:

  • Trump: 49 percent.
  • Clinton: 44 percent.
  • Libertarian Gary Johnson: 5 percent.

In Florida:

  • Clinton: 49 percent.
  • Trump: 47 percent.

In Nevada:

  • Trump: 49 percent.
  • Clinton: 43 percent.
  • Johnson: 5 percent.

Across all four states, certain trends are holding: Women favor Clinton, men back Trump; whites heavily support the Republican candidate, while non-whites are predominantly for the Democratic nominee.

On the issues, there are also clear trends, as Trump has the advantage on the economy in all four of these battleground states, while Clinton tops Trump on foreign policy. Clinton has the edge on healthcare across all four states, while she also is seen more than Trump as having the temperament to serve as president and handle the responsibilities of commander in chief.

Clinton also tops Trump in all but Arizona on having a clear vision for the country's future.

Despite those advantages, Clinton continues to be dogged by questions about her honesty, and is well behind Trump on that and trustworthiness in each of these four states.

  • Trump voters appear to be more enthusiastic for their candidate than Clinton supporters are for theirs. In Florida, 58 percent of Trump backers are enthusiastic about voting, while only 48 percent of Clinton backers feel the same.
  • The excitement factor is also apparent in Nevada, where 61 percent of Trump voters say they are enthusiastic, compared with 48 percent of Clinton supporters.

All four of these states also have Senate races this year, and only in one does the outcome appear certain. Democrats need to pick up four seats overall, assuming Clinton wins the presidency, in order to regain control of the upper chamber.

In Arizona:

  • John McCain: 52 percent.
  • Ann Kirkpatrick: 39 percent.

In Florida:

  • Marco Rubio: 49 percent.
  • Patrick Murphy: 48 percent.

In Nevada:

  • Joe Heck: 49 percent.
  • Catherine Cortez Masto: 47 percent.

In Pennsylvania:

  • Pat Toomey trails challenger Katie McGinty by 5 percentage points

     

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin saw the numbers, and suggested on Twitter that the

The CNN/ORC polls were conducted between Oct. 27-Nov. 1. Results among likely voters have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 percentage points in each state.
