We are now just weeks away from the presidential election and the race is getting even tighter between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton has been turning her focus to those toss-up states. Monday she campaigned in Cleveland, Ohio. Tuesday in Tampa.

A new poll suggests she might be losing her lead, meaning winning here in the battle ground state of Florida is now more critical than ever.

“Vote like your future depends on it. Because it does,” said Clinton to a students-filled crowd at the University of South Florida Tuesday afternoon.

The former Secretary of State is feeling the heat, too.

A new CNN poll shows Hillary Clinton might after have lost her lead to Donald Trump.

Much of her speech seemed to be tailored to the young audience at campaign event.

"How many of you have student debt,” Clinton asked the crowd. “We’re going to help you pay it back and pay it off quickly."

Besides education, she spoke about the environment and climate change, and other familiar topics like taxes, the economy and gun control.

Clinton also turned her attention to a topic critical to Floridians. Zika. 

“I call on all Republicans to put people before politics and finally vote in favor of a clean funding bill to fight Zika here in Florida.”

However, Hillary Clinton put much of her focus on national security, fighting ISIS and keeping our country safe by working with our allies.

In the process, she made sure to call out her republican opponent Donald Trump.

"Rather than work with our allies, he chooses to insult them,” said Clinton. “He got into a twitter war with the President of Mexico. He is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be President of the United States."

There is also no denying the fact she and her campaign are still feeling the heat over the controversy with her emails and the Clinton Foundation.
