New Florida Poll – Trump Ahead
A new FAU survey shows Donald Trump with a two-point lead over Crooked Hillary, 43 percent to 41 percent.
Yuuuge news for the Trump campaign after a couple of mediocre weeks in the polls. Many recent polls have been deliberately skewed in favor of Crooked Hillary, showing leads for her of 10 to 14 points which no one really thinks is anywhere close to being credible.
One poll even tried to show police-hating Crooked Hillary significantly ahead of Trump on law and order, which to borrow one of Mr. Trump’s favorite words was – unbelievable!
It’s up to us to use a bit of common sense and separate the genuine from the rigged polls.
Other results from this FAU poll show that Independents are voting for Trump by a wide margin of 47 percent to 26 percent.
Trump also leads among white voters 49 to 33 percent, but trails with African Americans 68 to 20 percent, as well as Hispanics 50 to 40 percent.
As far as the Hispanic vote is concerned, Monica Escaleras, Ph.D., director of the BEPI says that, “The race between Clinton and Trump among Hispanics in Florida is closer than it is nationally. Some of that is probably the Cuban vote. Trump’s support among Latinos in Florida is helping him stay competitive.”
The split among black voters, though, is very surprising and at 68 percent for Crooked Hillary versus 20 percent for Donald Trump, it is a very good result for Trump.
Maybe his outreach to black voters over the past 10 days is helping? We’ll need more data, but that’s a good start.
This poll also shows a considerable improvement for Trump in the 18 – 34 age group. Here Crooked Hillary leads by just three points, 38/35.
How accurate is this poll? Well, FAU has Marco Rubio up five points over Patrick Murphy, 44/39, in Florida’s Senate race, which is right in line with other polls of that election. If theie poll were skewed in favor of Republicans it would be expected that the Rubio numbers would be way above what they are.
Of course we will see for sure in November, but meantime – even with the media against Trump and the pollsters doing their best to skew the results against him – you will see a tightening of the numbers in the weeks ahead.
There’s still a ways to go in this race and a lot more damaging information about Crooked Hillary to come – so stay tuned.
