Donald Trump holds a narrow two-point lead over Hillary Clinton in battleground Florida, as the two camps fight over a state that both are calling a big prize.
Trump leads Clinton by 45 to 43 in the latest Bloomberg News poll in a race where third party candidates are included.
In a hypothetical two-way match up between the two main contenders, Trump's lead falls to just one point, 46 to 45 per cent.
Among critical independent voters, Trump is holding a narrow lead of 43 to 41 per cent.
Polls are tightening in the presidential race with less than two weeks to go before Election Day.
Some new surveys show Democrat Hillary Clinton’s national polling edge narrowing and Republican Donald Trump performing more strongly in the swing state of Florida.
Trump still faces a steep uphill climb, and the Electoral College map is extremely challenging for him. But the movement in the poll numbers gives his campaign hope after perhaps the worst phase of his campaign.
A new Bloomberg poll in Florida gave Trump a 2-point edge on Wednesday. In the RealClearPolitics (RCP) polling average in the Sunshine State, Clinton’s edge has been eroded from 4 percentage points on Oct. 21 to 1.6 points now.
In the RCP national average, Clinton’s lead has softened from 7.1 points on Oct. 17 to 5.1 points now.
If the polls froze in their current position, Clinton would win the White House comfortably. But the fluidity is causing even some Democrats to warn against complacency.
“I think we have to wait and see where we are a week from now,” said one Democratic strategist who asked for anonymity to speak candidly. “But races aren’t over 13 days out. Races are over on Election Day.”
And I'm thankful for one more thing. I thank God for the fact that I can say these words- which at one point I thought I would never, ever be able to say in public: thank You, Lord, for PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump!!!
