Poll: Clinton up 5 points over Trump in Florida

The Hill reports:
Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump in Florida has shrunk to 5 points from last month's edge of 9, a Monmouth University survey released Tuesday reported.

n a four-way race, the Democratic presidential nominee has 46 percent support to Trump's 41 percent. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson receives 6 percent support, while only 1 percent plans to vote for the Green Party's Jill Stein.

A month ago, Monmouth reported Clinton with 48 percent to Trump's 39.

Clinton's core support among likely Florida voters comes from Hispanic, black and Asian communities, while the Republican nominee holds a healthy 18-point lead among whites.
