Two post-debate polls in the battleground states of Florida and Nevada show Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump.

A Suffolk University poll taken Sept. 27 to Sept. 29 shows Clinton with a six-point lead over Trump in Nevada, 44 percent to 38 percent. In a Suffolk University poll from August, Clinton had a two-point lead.

Fifty-seven percent of those polled said they thought Clinton won Monday night’s debate.

The Nevada poll questioned 500 likely voters and has a plus or minus 4.4 percent margin of error.

In Florida, Clinton leads Trump by four points, 46 percent to 42 percent in a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research poll.

The survey found Trump beats Clinton with Independents, 41 percent to 33 percent.

The Florida poll has a plus or minus 3.5 percent margin of error.

According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, Trump and Clinton are virtually tied in both Florida and Nevada.
