In a state known for close top-of-the-ticket races, Johnson’s relatively small support could have big consequences.
“Clinton is gaining her edge in two key areas – some defections from Trump to Johnson among white Republican and independent voters and extremely strong support for her among Hispanics (68%),” Mason-Dixon pollster Brad Coker wrote in a memo for the poll of 625 likely voters. Its error margin is 4 points.
Trump’s standing among Hispanics has been abysmal in nearly every recent poll taken in Florida, where 15 percent of the registered voters are Latino. Clinton does even better among black voters, who are about 14 percent of the voter rolls and back her over Trump by 90-4 percent.
