Trump Is Gaining Ground on Clinton in Florida and Nevada, Homestretch Polls Show

Posted on

Hillary Clinton saw a double-digit lead amid Donald Trump‘s latest controversies, but as Election Day 2016 draws near, new polls suggest that the GOP candidate is catching up.

Multiple polls suggest that the presidential hopefuls are in a fierce fight for battleground states Florida and Nevada, with Trump and Clinton both at 43 percent among likely voters in Nevada, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

“Major story that the Dems are making up phony polls in order to suppress the the Trump. We are going to WIN!” Trump, 70, tweeted on Monday.

The GOP nominee boasts a two-point lead in Florida, with Clinton at 43 percent among likely voters and Trump at 45 percent, according to a recent Bloomberg poll.

Just last week, the two states appeared to lean in favor of Clinton, 68, CNN reports of its electoral college map. A CBS News poll had Clinton boasting a three-point lead in Florida and another had Clinton leading Trump by seven percent in Nevada.

The new polls come after Trump has faced numerous accusations of sexual assault.

The allegations began pouring in after The Washington Post published a video of the presidential candidate making lewd comments about groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation with Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush that were caught on a hot microphone. Trump has strongly and repeatedly denied all charges against him.

Clinton, meanwhile, is facing her own controversies.

Her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State has long plagued her campaign, and a recent hack by WikiLeaks rolled out more than 12,000 internal emails illegally obtained from the private account.
