A new Quinnipiac poll of Ohio voters released Wednesday finds Vice President Joe Biden significantly behind potential match-ups against Republicans Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul in the key battleground state.

Biden is topped by the Kentucky senator by a 49-40 margin. Things get even worse for the VP against New Jersey’s Christie, who is beating him 50-32.

The results come alongside strong Ohioan disapproval for the Obama administration, with Obama’s job approval in the state dropping to 40 percent — his lowest rating in the state that was a key focus in his re-election campaign.

Hillary Clinton fares far better, tying Christie 42-42, and topping Paul 47-44.
