Trust fall: Donald Trump erases Hillary Clinton’s lead in new Florida Q poll

Since being called "extremely careless" in her handling of emails, Hillary Clinton has gone from an 8-point lead to a 3-point deficit in Florida, according to Quinnipiac University.

Since being called “extremely careless” in her handling of emails, Hillary Clinton has gone from an 8-point lead to a 3-point deficit in Florida, according to Quinnipiac University.

Donald Trump holds a 42-to-39 percent lead over Hillary Clinton in Florida in a new Quinnipiac University poll — a dramatic reversal from Clinton’s 8-point lead in the state in Quinnipiac’s poll last month.

 

Trump’s 3-point lead means the Florida race is essentially a tie because of the poll’s 3.1 percent margin of error.

Since the last Quinnipiac poll, Clinton avoided criminal charges but was blasted as “extremely careless” for her handling of sensitive emails on a homebrew server while she was secretary of state.

 

Florida voters say Trump is more “honest and trustworthy” than Clinton by a 50-to-37 percent margin — up from a 43-to-40 percent edge for Trump last month.

 

Quinnipiac also released polls from two other swing states today. In Ohio, Clinton and Trump are tied at 41 percent after being tied at 40 percent last month. In Pennsylvania, Trump leads 43-to-41 percent in a poll that has a 3.2 percent margin of error.
