August 17, 2016 2:22 p.m.

Three swing state polls released by Quinnipiac show Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Republican Donald Trump in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.

Clinton holds the largest lead among Virginia voters, where she polls 12 points ahead of Trump, 50-38.

In Colorado, Clinton maintains a 10-point lead, 49-39.

And in Iowa, where the polls have mostly been tight, Clinton now holds a three-point lead, 47-44, according to the new Quinnipiac poll.

Quinnipiac has not polled previously any of the these three swing states about general election preferences.

A Washington Post/Abt-SRBI Virginia poll released Tuesday showed Clinton ahead of Trump by eight points, 51-43, in a two-way presidential poll among the state’s likely voters.

The most recent poll of Colorado’s registered voters, conducted by NBC/WSJ/Marist, shows Clinton ahead by 14 points.

The newest Iowa poll, from Suffolk University, showed Trump ahead by one point among likely voters.

This swing state poll was conducted over the phone by Quinnipiac from Aug. 9-16. The survey included 830 likely Colorado voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent, 846 likely Iowa voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent and 808 likely Virginia voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent.
