A poll released Friday, conducted by Mason Dixon Polling and Research, is showing that Hillary Clinton is now leading Donald Trump by two points in Florida.
The poll shows that Clinton has 44 percent of the vote to Trump’s 42 percent. This is a bit of a shift, seeing that Trump was leading Clinton in the state in polls earlier this week. Unlike these results, there hasn’t been any significant change in poll results for the other two candidates. The poll shows Libertarian presidential candidate, Gary Johnson, holding 6 percent, Green party candidate, Jill Stein, with only 2 percent, and another 6 percent are undecided.
