Florida, North Carolina too close to call: Quinnipiac poll

The critical battleground states of Florida and North Carolina are too close to call heading into Tuesday’s presidential election, according to polling released Monday by Quinnipiac University.

Hillary Clinton held a scant 1-point lead over Donald Trump in Florida and a 2-point lead over Mr. Trump in North Carolina, according to the Quinnipiac University poll. Both leads were inside the margins of error.

“While neither of these states is likely to be as close as the 548 votes in Florida that decided the 2000 election, both states could keep the country up counting ballots well into Wednesday morning and perhaps beyond,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

In Florida’s U.S. Senate race, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio had a 7-point, 50 percent to 43 percent, lead over Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy in the poll.

And in North Carolina, GOP Sen. Richard Burr and Democrat Deborah Ross were tied at 47 percent apiece.

The surveys were conducted from Nov. 3-6.
