Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump in the key battleground states of Florida and Pennsylvania, including by double digits in the Keystone State due to her strength in Philadelphia and its suburbs, according to two brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal polls.
In Florida, the Democratic nominee is ahead of Trump by three points among likely voters, 45 percent to 42 percent, within the poll’s margin of error. Libertarian Gary Johnson gets 5 percent, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein gets 3 percent.
In Pennsylvania, Clinton’s lead over the Republican candidate is 12 points among likely voters, 49 percent to 37 percent, with Johnson at 6 percent and Stein at 4 percent.
It would be virtually impossible for Trump to win the White House if he loses both states, especially Florida.
Both polls were conducted before Friday’s bombshell 2005 audio of Trump talking about groping and kissing women.
