According to the poll of 538 registered likely voters in the Sunshine State, Clinton has a 4-point lead in the poll, although poll has a margin of error of 4.2 percent.


The poll also found Trump was winning the early/absentee vote by 4 points (51-47), Clinton winning independent voters by almost 30 points (57-28), Trump winning the purple I-4 corridor by 8 points (51-43) and Clinton winning southeastern Florida by 32 points (64-32).

Both candidates are winning among their respective sexes with Clinton winning women by 11 (53-42) and Trump winning men by 5 points (49-44).

The poll is roughly in line with other polls showing a similar margin between the two candidates. And according to Bloomberg News, the polling firm was rated the third most accurate pollster in the nation earlier in the year.

Both candidates are making multiple appearances in Florida in the coming days, with Trump hosting events in Naples and Tampa and Clinton and her surrogates holding events in Jacksonville, Palm Beach and Miami.
