As Hillary Clinton's lead in the polls continues to hold, a pro-Clinton super PAC is suspending advertisements in three major swing states, despite the fact that many voters still say they don't trust her.

Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that was started to support President Barack Obama in 2012 and now backs Clinton, announced it was suspending advertising in Virginia, Colorado and Pennsylvania from Sept. 2 to 20.

Recent NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls showed Clinton, the Democratic candidate, leading Republican rival Donald Trump by double digits among registered voters in all three states.
