BOSTON, MA – Four new polls released today by Emerson College show a tightening of the presidential race, and for the first time, Hillary Clinton has taken the lead in Arizona, by a margin of 44% to 42%.
Donald Trump leads 45% to 44% in the battleground state of Florida, and the two are even in Nevada, at 43% each. In Rhode Island Clinton has opened up a 20-point advantage over Trump (52% to 32%). She has extended her margin 17 points in the Ocean State since a September Emerson poll where she held just a 3-point edge, 44% to 41%. Her recent gains are mostly due to Bernie Sanders primary voters coming over to Clinton.
