Hillary Clinton lost ground against Donald Trump in a number of new polls released Wednesday. A new Monmouth University poll shows Clinton's lead in New Hampshire narrowing to 4 points in the four-way race among likely voters, though RealClearPolitics shows Clinton ahead by an average of about 7 points in the Granite State. Clinton had also pursued a long-shot push into Texas in recent weeks, even airing a TV ad there, but a new poll by Crosswind/American-Statesman Texas Pulse shows Trump with a comfortable 7-point lead. Perhaps most encouraging for Trump supporters, a new Bloomberg Politics poll shows Trump beating Clinton by 2 points in must-win Florida, though the RealClearPolitics average has Clinton up 3.1 points in the state. Nationally, the RealClearPolitics average shows Clinton up by 4.7 points in the four-way race.
