Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has overtaken his opponent Hillary Clinton in the battleground state of Florida, with the race too close to call in two other swing states, a new poll showed Wednesday.
“Trump enters the Republican Convention on a small roll in the three most important swing states in the country,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll. Trump was leading 42-39 per cent in Florida, compared to a 47-39 Clinton advantage in a June 21 poll.
In Ohio, Clinton and Trump were tied at 41 per cent, while in Pennsylvania, Trump had 43 percent support over Clinton’s 41 per cent. Those are slight changes from June 21, when they were tied 40-40 in Ohio and Clinton had a 42-41 lead in Pennsylvania. -AFP
