Dueling Florida polls split on whether Trump or Clinton ahead

6

October

Another day, another batch of Florida polls. Today we have University of North Florida, with a 9/27-10/4 poll that finds Hillary Clinton up a whopping 7 percentage points over Donald Trump (just up 3 with Gary Johnson and Jill Stein in the mix), and and Emerson College has an Oct. 2-4 poll that finds Trump leading Clinton 45 percent to 44 percent, with 4 percent for Gary Johnson and 3 percent for Jill Stein. 

Emerson has Republican Sen. Marco Rubio comfortably leading Democrat Partick Murphy 47 percent to 39 percent.

Since mid-September, Emerson is the second Florida poll to show Trump slightly ahead while six show Clintoin leading. Bottom line: It's close.
