CNN/ORC poll: Trump edges Clinton in super-tight Florida


Another poll, another virtual tie in Florida's presidential race -- except this time, it's Donald Trump who's edging Hillary Clinton.

A new CNN/ORC poll shows Trump drawing 47 percent of Florida's likely vote, compared to Clinton's 44 percent. That's within the polls 3.5 percentage-point error margin. Libertarian Gary Johnson drew 6 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein drew 1 percent.

Recent Florida polls have shown the race tied or in a similar statistical tie, but with Clinton holding a slight advantage over Trump. Surveys in other battleground states also suggest Trump is on the upswing.

In the Florida U.S. Senate race, the CNN poll shows Republican Marco Rubio comfortably ahead of Democrat Patrick Murphy, 54-43 percent. Other polls have suggested the race is closer.
