All was not calm in a Capitol Hill meeting Thursday between Senate Democrats and the party's presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, The Hill reports.
"Some people were freaked out, they were looking down at the polls on Real Clear Politics and asking why it was so close," a senator who was present at the meeting told The Hill. The senators were checking their phones or tablets to check the latest polls, some of which Trump is either tied or ahead of Clinton – or not very far behind.
Clinton responded there are "other issues" and that "People are unhappy and they don't trust institutions," the senator said
Another person who was present at the meeting told Politico there was "a mention of the Florida poll."
Trump leads three points in the swing state of Florida in a new Quinnipiac poll that has been important in presidential contests ever since the 2000 election went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Clinton led the same Quinnipiac poll by eight points in June.
"There was concern raised about the race because we know it's going to be a close race," another source told The Hill.
A top Democratic aide who didn't attend the meeting, told The Hill that senators have raised concerns about how close the polls are.
"We wouldn't be Democrats if there weren't a few bed-wetters," the person said.
