Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are in a dead heat in three key battleground states, a new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found.

In both Florida and Pennsylvania, Clinton leads Trump by just one point, with 43 percent support to his 42 percent. Trump posted a four-point lead in Ohio, polling at 43 percent to Clinton’s 39 percent. The poll found wide divides in support drawn along lines of gender, race and age.

The poll also found Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has vowed to fight the Democratic nominating contest to the summer convention, performs better than Clinton against Trump in all three of those states.

Quinnipiac pollsters surveyed 1,051 Florida voters, 1,042 Ohio voters, and 1,077 Pennsylvania voters over cell phones and land lines from April 27-May 8. There was a margin of error of three percentage points in each state.
