Rhode Island and Arizona are the first states where Emerson polls suggest that Bernie Sanders primary voters may be coming around to the Clinton camp. In the September 7 Emerson survey, only 50% of Sanders voters said they planned to vote for Clinton. In the current poll that figure jumped to 67%, and almost 8 of every 10 Sanders Arizona voters (78%) now favor Clinton. In two of the states, Independents favor Trump while the other two lean toward Clinton. He is up by 11 points in Nevada (47% to 36%) and 6 in Rhode Island (42% to 36%). She has a 1-point edge in Florida (40% to 39%) and a 5-point margin in Arizona (42% to 37%). Three of the states polled have a sizable Hispanic population: Florida (19%), Nevada (22%) and Arizona (22%). Among Hispanic voters, Clinton has a solid lead over Trump in all three: 59% to 21% in Nevada, 54% to 40% in Arizona, and 59% to 36% in Florida. In Florida, the only state among the four polled that has an African American population greater than 10%, Clinton has an enormous lead, 77% to 18%.
