With Big Lead, Pro-Clinton Super PAC Suspends Ads in 3 Swing States

At the same time, poll shows most don't trust her or Trump

As Hillary Clinton's lead in the polls continues to hold, a pro-Clinton super PAC is suspending advertisements in three major swing states, despite the fact that many voters still say they don't trust her.

Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that was started to support President Barack Obama in 2012 and now backs Clinton, announced it was suspending advertising in Virginia, Colorado and Pennsylvania from Sept. 2 to 20.

Recent NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls showed Clinton, the Democratic candidate, leading Republican rival Donald Trump by double digits among registered voters in all three states.

But another NBC poll conducted with SurveyMonkey found that while Clinton would defeat Trump if the election were held today, only 11 percent say the Democrat is trustworthy. Conversely, 16 percent believe the same about Trump.
