WASHINGTON (CNN) – With just six days until this country chooses its next president. The all-important sunshine state is still very much in play.

A new CNN/ORC poll is showing Clinton with a two-point lead in Florida. Donald Trump was there Wednesday taking his battleground blitz to Miami.

Clinton has also been spending a lot of time in Florida, trying to win all votes, but with a focus on Spanish-speaking voters.

Hillary Clinton delivering her closing argument to Latino voters. She’s setting her sights on a pair of battleground states, Nevada and Arizona, where the Hispanic vote is critical.

As her campaign hits the airwaves with a new television ad featuring actor Jimmy Smits. The Clinton campaign also releasing a radio ad aimed at generating enthusiasm from another key piece of the Obama coalition, African Americans.

Narrator: Listen to how he talks about us.
Trump: I have a great relationship with the blacks. Look at my African American over here.
Narrator: But we shouldn’t be surprised. Trump has repeatedly disrespected President Obama.
Trump: President Obama has been the most ignorant president in history.

President Obama warning black voters Wednesday that his legacy could be in their hands:

Obama said, “Right now the Latino vote is up, overall vote is up but the African American vote right now, is not as solid as it needs to be. And so if you really care about my presidency and what we’ve accomplished, then you are going to go and vote.”

The President and other top surrogates looking to give Clinton a boost in the final stretch.

“I hate to put a little pressure on you but the fate of the republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering and you, North Carolina, are going to have to make sure that we push it in the right direction.” Said Obama.

The President campaigning in North Carolina Wednesday and Vice President Biden in Florida, Elizabeth warren in Nevada, and Bernie Sanders making stops in Michigan and Wisconsin.

That, as the Clinton campaign looks to protect its blue firewall by going on the air with ads in Colorado and Virginia, increasing its overall ad spending to more than 32-million-dollars before Election Day.

It comes as the campaign continues to deal with the fallout from the FBI’s investigation into e-mails from longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin found on a computer belonging to her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner.

Abedin not traveling with Clinton on her westward swing Wednesday. Instead seen getting into a car in New York.
