A Florida post-debate poll shows Democrat Hillary Clinton with a narrow lead over Republican Donald Trump in the nation’s biggest jump-ball state.
Mason-Dixon Polling & Research said Clinton holds a 46 percent to 42 percent edge on Trump, in a survey with a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percent.
Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson is drawing 7 percent of the Florida vote, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, 1 percent. Another 4 percent remain undecided, the poll showed.
“Despite small shifts that have given Clinton a post-debate bump, the race is still very competitive and the outcome will hinge on where and among whom voter turnout is higher,” Mason-Dixon concluded.
The Interstate-4 corridor, where many Florida elections are won or lost, remains a tale of two cities. Clinton leads in the Tampa Bay-area, 47-40 percent, the poll showed, while Trump is ahead in the Orlando area, 46-43 percent.
Mason-Dixon polled 820 likely Florida voters by phone, Tuesday through Thursday.
