Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is back in the lead in the swing state of Florida over presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in recent polls, as the two head into their party’s conventions this month.

One poll also shows the New Yorker leading Clinton among Hispanic voters in the sunshine state.

A group tied to Florida Gov. Rick Scott produced a poll, which was released Monday, that shows Trump with a two point lead over Clinton, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The poll, conducted by On Message Inc., found the two top issues on Floridian’s minds heading into the general election are the economy and immigration.

JMC Analytics also conducted a poll, finding Trump leads Clinton in Florida by five points. Trump received 47 percent support compared to Clinton’s 42 percent. He’s also leading with Hispanic voters by 13 points.

Another recent poll conducted by One America News Network and Gravis Marketing, found Trump leads Clinton when a third option is offered. Forty-nine percent support Trump and 45 percent support Clinton while six percent chose the “other” option. However, in a head-to-head match-up between just Clinton and Trump, Clinton beats the real estate mogul by four points.

Earlier polls in Florida showed Clinton leading Trump by an average of 3.7 points, according to Real Clear Politics.
