Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 4 points in a new Quinnipiac University poll of likely Florida voters.

Hillary Clinton holds a 48-to-44 percent lead over Donald Trump in crucial Florida, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

 

Quinnipiac also released polls this afternoon showing Clinton leading Trump in Colorado and Pennsylvania and tied with the part-time Palm Beach resident in Ohio.

 

Clinton’s Florida lead is just outside the poll’s 3.8 percent margin of error and compares to a 5-point Clinton lead in a Quinnipiac poll released two weeks ago. The latest poll of 660 likely Florida voters was conducted from last Monday through Sunday — after the release of a bombshell 2005 tape in which Trump bragged about using his celebrity status to kiss and grope women and during a week in which several women went public with claims that Trump kissed or touched them inappropriately.

 

Trump has denied the accusations, saying in a speech in West Palm Beach last week that the claims were orchestrated by the Clinton campaign and the media

 

Clinton holds a 46-to-38 percent lead among independent voters in the new poll, compared to a 42-to-39 percent advantage Trump held with independents in the Oct. 3 poll.

 

The new poll actually shows Trump narrowing the gender gap that has plagued his candidacy. Florida women favor Clinton by a 54-to-39 percent margin in the new survey, compared to a 53-to-33 percent advantage two weeks ago. Among men, Trump has a 49-to-40 percent edge in the new poll, comparable to a 49-to-38 percent edge two weeks ago.
