Virginia poll: Clinton steady with millenials, Trump drops among GOP

The Democratic presidential nominee holds an 11-point lead over opponent Donald Trump in Colorado, according to a Monmouth University poll released Monday. In the new results, Clinton was at 45 percent, Trump 41 percent, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson 5 percent, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein was at 2 percent.

To be sure, Trump has even vowed to bring up at the next presidential debate claims about former President Bill Clinton having extra-marital affairs and wife Hillary's apparent attempts to silence the women accusers - despite fellow Republicans urging him to avoid such a strategy.

The last Quinnipiac poll in Florida, released September 8, showed Clinton and Trump tied at 43 percent with Johnson and Stein in the race.

The Connecticut-based pollsters found 57 percent picked Clinton as the debate victor, a tally that includes 27 percent of Republicans.

Without the third-party candidates, Clinton leads Trump, 48 percent to 43 percent. Support from millennial voters - a demographic Clinton has struggled with - also increased by 7 percentage points in the state. The vast majority of Democrats, 84 percent, and 54 percent of independents told Quinnipiac that Clinton won the debate; among Republicans, Trump had a 42-27 edge.

Young voters have been key to President Barack Obama's victories in Virginia in 2008 and in 2012.

A Fox poll released Friday showed Clinton with a five-point lead, 49 percent to 44 percent.

Support for Clinton from minority voters within the state is four times that for Trump - she holds a 54% lead, an overwhelming advantage almost unchanged since July.

Florida was the friendliest of the four swing states for Clinton in the four-candidate race.

The Mason-Dixon poll had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
