Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are running neck-and-neck in the Sunshine State. Americans call Trump a more extreme candidate than Clinton. And women are optimistic about progress for their gender, but see room for improvement.  This is HuffPollster for Monday, September 19, 2016.

FLORIDA POLL SHOWS A CLOSE RACE – Nate Cohn: “Donald J. Trump has almost no plausible path to the White House unless he wins Florida, a rapidly changing state where Hispanic voters could deal a decisive blow to his chances. But a new poll, by The New York Times Upshot/Siena College, suggests that Mr. Trump is keeping his hopes alive in Florida, the largest and most diverse of the crucial battleground states. The reason: White voters favor him by a large margin. Mrs. Clinton leads by a single point, 41 to 40 percent, among likely voters in a four-way race that includes Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. The race is tied in the head-to-head race, 43-43. The poll, the first of its kind by The Upshot, was based on voter records that allow unusually detailed analysis of the electorate. It indicates that Mr. Trump leads Mrs. Clinton by 51 percent to 30 percent among white voters – and that includes all white voters, not just those without a college education who have been so vital to his campaign. She’s winning white voters registered as Democrats by only 63 percent to 17 percent.” [NYTimes]
