Fresh Florida poll shows Clinton leading Trump

15

July

Hold up, TrumpTrain.

A new Florida poll shows Hillary Clinton with a seven percentage point lead over Donald Trump, contradicting a Qunnipiac poll earlier this week.

Clinton gets 44 percent of the vote to Trump's 37 percent, according to the NBC/WSJ/Marist poll released Friday.

The Q poll showed Trump erasing Clinton's lead in Florida and holding a 3 point lead.

Polling this early is volatile and Florida is reliably close.

In the Senate race, Marco Rubio leads Patrick Murphy 47 percent to 44 percent -- again contradicting a Qunnipiac poll this week that showed Rubio with a more substantial lead.

The poll was conducted July 5-11 of 871 registered voters in Florida (plus-minus 3.3 percentage points.
