A New poll conducted in the 2016 presidential election is a political earthquake.
A poll from Florida Atlantic University that was just released confirms Donald Trump has officially taken the lead over Hillary Clinton, 43 percent to 41 percent!
The poll, conducted as more questions are being raised about the Clinton Foundation, shows that among 1,200 likely voters in the swing-state of Florida, Trump is leading. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson earned 8% of the vote, while 5% are undecided. The margin of error was 2.7%.
Why is Trump surging ahead? Because Trump’s support among Latino and Hispanic voters is greater than the liberal media suspected. This is incredible:
This is the first poll showing Trump leading Clinton in the Sunshine State since early July, according to RealClearPolitics polling.
Both major-party nominees have negative favorability ratings in the state. Forty-one percent view Trump favorably, while 56 percent view him unfavorably. Clinton is viewed favorably by 40 percent, while 58 percent view her unfavorably.
Trump is winning over independents by a double-digit margin, 47 percent to 26 percent, and he has a similar edge with male and white voters. Clinton leads among female voters and African-Americans by nearly 50 points and Hispanics by 10 points.
“The race between Clinton and Trump among Hispanics in Florida is closer than it is nationally,” said Monica Escaleras, the director of Florida Atlantic University’s Business and Economics Polling Initiative. “Some of that is probably the Cuban vote. Trump’s support among Latinos in Florida is helping him stay competitive.”

This is also bad news for Democrats in the US Senate, as they were hoping that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was a possible target for defeat in November and help cause Republicans to lose their majority.
