Trump has moved to the lead in the all important state of Florida, completely overshadowing early voting efforts on the behalf of Democrats.
This is the first time Trump has pulled to the lead in Florida and it’s coming at just the right time.
FOX News reports:
Trump gains in Florida polls despite Democrats lead in early voting
President Trump is leading for the first time in Florida polling, according to Real Clear Politics on Tuesday, even as Democrats lead in early voting.
According to the website’s average of polls, the president holds a slim 0.4 percent lead over Democratic nominee Joe Biden heading into next week’s election.
Nearly 2.7 million Democrats have already voted in the Sunshine State, just narrowly beating the nearly 2.4 million early voting Republicans.
Almost 1.3 million Floridians have submitted their vote without an affiliated party.
Florida has historically been a highly contested swing state with 29 Electoral College votes up for grabs. Only twice has a Democratic candidate won the presidency without winning Florida since 1860: John Kennedy in 1960 and Bill Clinton in 1992…
Although Hillary Clinton lost Florida to Trump in the end, she maintained a lead in the polls by 2.3 percent one week out from the election in 2016.
One of the best pieces of news for the Trump campaign comes in the details for one of the polls.
From American Greatness:
47% of respondents hold an unfavorable view of Biden, compared to 43% in the last survey, while 50% approve of Donald Trump’s job performance compared to 45% a month ago.
Key findings from the survey include the following: Trump is winning registered Independents/NPA’s 50:28, a huge reversal from a 37:40 Biden margin in September. The survey projects that Independents will make up 2 in 10 voters. Trump has also closed the gender gap with females, going from a 57:33 deficit to a 54:40 Biden lead in the current poll, marking a 7-point improvement for Trump.
Again, the timing of this could not be better for Trump.
The election is a week away and everything seems to be tightening in his favor.
