Florida is a key swing state in 2020, as it has been in nearly every election in recent memory.
Trump won the state in 2016 and is polling well there for 2020 as well. In fact, a recent piece of news gives the Trump campaign an even bigger boost than they had four years ago.
Joe Biden is trailing Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign with Hispanic voters in Florida. That’s huge.
Biden lags among Florida Hispanic voters
Joe Biden is underperforming among Florida Hispanic voters while Donald Trump has marginally increased his numbers from 2016, according to a new poll in the must-win battleground state for the president.
Biden leads Trump among Hispanics by 53-37 percent in the poll conducted for Equis Research, a Democratic Latino research firm. While his advantage seems large, Biden’s 16-percentage point margin spells potential trouble for him because it’s 11 points lower than what Hillary Clinton received in 2016 exit polls, when she lost the state to Trump.
At the same time, Trump is running slightly ahead of his statewide Hispanic performance in 2016 by about 2 points thanks to increased backing from conservative Cuban-American voters and additional support from a broader coalition of Latino voters, specifically men, whom the president’s campaign has courted.
The poll results jibe with months of criticisms leveled at Biden for doing too little to juice up Hispanic support in Florida, as well as in other battleground states.
Some of this is about all of the socialists Biden has surrounded himself with.
A surprise to some, but to Hispanic voters in Florida who fled communism and seen Biden embrace extreme leftist policies and radical socialists in his party, it’s no surprise at all.

Bad news for Old Joe is great news for Trump.
More terrible news for Basement Joe Biden. Even Politico is freaked. "Joe Biden Losing Hispanic Voters to Trump in Florida" https://t.co/IR2RQLDtMq

If Trump holds Florida in 2020, he is very likely to win reelection.
