Clinton's lead on Trump shrinks in new Marquette University Law School poll

Republican Donald Trump pulled ahead of Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton in Florida and Pennsylvania in a Quinnipiac Poll released on Wednesday that included responses after the Federal Bureau of Investigation released its findings on Clinton's email use.

In the two other states polled, OH and Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump are in as tight a race as other pollsters have documented.

Given the margin of error, those states are all essentially dead heats at the moment. In a head-to-head matchup, Trump leads Clinton by a margin of 42 percent to 39 percent in Florida, erasing the Democrat's eight-point lead in June, according to the poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.

For registered voters, Feingold owns a 48%-41% lead on Johnson - a margin three percentage points higher than June (45-41).

In Iowa, Clinton gets support of 37 percent of registered voters, Trump gets an equal 37 percent, Johnson gets 7 percent and Stein gets 4 percent. Comey recommended no criminal charges be filed but said Clinton was "extremely careless" and would have faced potential disciplinary measures if she had still been a State Department employee.

On the question of who voters find more trustworthy, Trump leads Clinton 50 percent to 37 percent, up from a virtual tie of 43 percent for Trump and 40 percent for Clinton a month ago. Last month, Clinton led 47 to 39 per cent.

And in Pennsylvania, it's Clinton 43 percent, Trump 35 percent, Johnson 8 percent and Stein 2 percent.

Trump gradually gaining ground, according to new poll.

11 percent of registered voters said they would not vote for either candidate.

Three states-Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania-show Trump either edging out or tied with Clinton.

He added, "There is no doubt in my mind, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate" to address the needs of the American people and the very serious crises confronting the country.

While a sector of Sanders supporters are distraught and alienated, "the other part - and I'm a part of them - are more realistic about how politics work", said Jessica Frisco, 23, a health policy analyst who lives on the Upper West Side. In the latest poll, it surveyed 1,015 registered Florida voters from June 30 to Monday.

The survey was conducted by telephone from July 9 to 12 with 404 Colorado residents and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9%.
