<p>During a discussion on her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd were puzzled by a new poll showing bad numbers for Hillary Clinton. Mitchell immediately tried to downplay the results:<strong> &ldquo;I mean, it&#39;s one poll, it&#39;s a Quinnipiac poll</strong>....But it does show her behind in the swing states, with Virginia, I guess, as within the margin of error....<strong>It&#39;s pretty early.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Todd replied: <strong>&ldquo;Well, no, it&#39;s like her standing in national polls looks fairly strong. These swing states, Virginia, usually goes where the national polls are. So something is amiss here.</strong> Either the state polls are an outlier or the state polls have found something first, before the national polls, which is also possible.&rdquo;</p>
