A new poll shows that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has improved his standings in Florida, now leading his opponent Hillary Clinton by four points.

Trump is polling with 46 percent of the vote, while Clinton is trailing with 42 percent, according to the latest New York Times Upshot/Siena poll of the state.

Trump has improved his standings among Cuban-Americans by 19 points in just one month. A September poll showed Trump only earning 33 percent of Florida Cubans, with Clinton leading with 41 percent.

Today’s poll shows a dramatic shift. Trump now leads Clinton among Cubans by ten points — 52 percent vs. 42 percent for Clinton.

The poll shows that Trump has jumped nine points among Hispanics overall, from 21 percent in September to 30 percent.
