More surveys show the GOP nominee was building momentum prior to FBI bombshell
A second major poll, this time in the crucial swing state of Florida, shows Donald Trump may have been building momentum against Hillary Clinton before the FBI bombshell Friday that it has reopened its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.
The New York Times/Siena College poll released Sunday, which surveyed 815 likely voters and was conducted from Oct. 25-27, showed Trump with a 4-point lead over Clinton, at 46 to 42 percent, in a four-way race in Florida. Just last month, the same poll found Clinton ahead of Trump by 1 point.
Another survey released Wednesday by Bloomberg Politics also showed the GOP nominee ahead in the Sunshine State, by 2 points, at 45 to 43 percent, in a four-way race and by 1 point, at 46 to 45 percent, in a two-way race.
The NYT/Siena poll follows a national tracking survey from ABC News/The Washington Post that showed Trump had picked up 10 points on Clinton in just the four days prior to the October surprise from the FBI.
FBI Director James Comey shocked the political world with his announcement saying, “the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.”
The existence of these emails reportedly was discovered as the FBI investigated top Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s estranged husband, disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, as part of an investigation into the explicitly sexual text messages Weiner allegedly sent to a 15-year-old girl.
