Incumbent GOP President Donald Trump has taken the lead in Florida over Democrat challenger former Vice President Joe Biden, a new poll out of the Sunshine State shows.

The poll, from Orlando’s Fox35 and InsiderAdvantage, shows Trump up over Biden 46 percent to 43 percent, with one percent support for Libertarian Jo Jorgenson and ten percent undecided. . . .

Good to see if true. I don’t have much belief in the polls anymore but always nice to see one positive for President Trump in the state of Florida.

I live in Florida and typically vote by mail. This year my mail ballot has not arrived. Others I know have received their ballots to vote but I have not. I was planning on voting in person this time anyway as I’m now full time in Florida but hoping I don’t run into problems when I head to the both in a week or two to vote.

That looks to be an outlier compared to other polls.

It doesn’t matter.

From the article:

It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9%.

Trump’s three-point lead is inside the poll’s 4.9 percent margin of error.

“These results are still within the margin of error, so Florida remains up for grabs. But to paint it blue or red on any projected electoral map at this point would be pure folly,” pollster Matt Towery, Sr., said.

I have always thought Trump would win Florida in the end. But the fact that it is so close if not a good sign for him. Among other reasons - Florida is a must win for him so he will need to pour resources in there that he needs elsewhere. If Trump can’t pull off a come from behind victory in Penn, it won’t really matter who wins Florida. The electoral math is getting tough for him.

The state polls have a larger margin for error and not only because of the number involved. The poll has to get the right representation of age, college degree, race, etc and that’s not easy. As we found out in 2016.

National polls have a more random sample which generally comes within 1-2% if poll is over 2000 on the 2-3 days before.

Goodie, goodie, if it’s true!

Now, he needs to do what he can to broaden his lead in Florida, and pull out ahead in the other crucial states. I think he already is ahead. People either don’t talk to pollsters, or they lie to pollsters to avoid being targeted.

If your mail in ballot comes take it with you to the polls and show them you have not voted by mail! Make sure they void the mail in ballot!

I was just trying to think what I would do especially if I got a mail in ballot that I did not request!!!

Yours Truly,
Hillary Clinton

What do you recommend?

Conduct a poll on CFA, presuming they still do it here.

I would recommend to watch the actual words of the politicians, instead of the commentaries.

For example, in the town hall meeting tonight, Trump was asserting that he knows nothing of QANON, and then also said that those are advocates of pedophilia. So how can he know this if he knows NOTHING about them? :wink:

Joe Biden also claimed he was running for the Senate. Twice.

However, neither comment has anything to do with actual poll numbers…

I did hear the President. The Q Anon thing does not mean anything to me. I only hear about Q Anon from the news.
