Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton in the key swing state of Ohio, a new poll shows. 

{mosads}The Bloomberg Politics poll released Wednesday morning shows Trump leading the Democratic presidential nominee, 48 to 43 percent, among likely voters in the Buckeye State. 

The poll follows a tough week for Clinton, during which she faced backlash for saying half of Trump’s supporters would fit into what she calls a “basket of deplorables.” 

Concerns over Clinton’s health are also growing after a widespread video showed her being helped into a van as she left a 9/11 memorial early on Sunday. 

The Bloomberg Politics poll was conducted between Sept. 9 and 12 and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. It included interviews with 802 likely Ohio voters.

A RealClearPolitics polling average shows a tight race in Ohio, with Clinton leading Trump, 44.3 to 44 percent.
