The following article, President Trump Pulls 3 Points Ahead Of Biden In New Florida Poll, was first published on Flag And Cross.
A brand new poll from the state of Florida has President Trump taking a small lead — 3 points — over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, but that’s not the only development worthy of note.
It also seems that the president is picking up more of the African-American vote in the state too, something which no doubt has Biden and his buddies a little bit nervous.
Forty-six percent of respondents said they would vote for Trump, while 43% said they would cast a ballot for Biden. Ten percent of respondents were undecided, and 1% said they would vote for libertarian Jo Jorgensen.
Pollster and founder of InsiderAdvantage, Matt Towery Sr., predicted Trump would win Florida in 2016, just days ahead of the election, pointing to polls not accurately depicting support for the president. He also predicted Barack Obama’s 2008 win.
“Once again, based on poor data and or weighting, many of the polls we are seeing simply are not picking up the actual level of support for President Trump,” said Towery. “What stands out in this poll is that Trump is actually picking up 12% of the African American vote in the Sunshine State.”
“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,” Towery stated.
The poll was conducted between the days of October 6-7 with a survey of 400 voters through live calls and interactive voice response calls. There’s a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.
Florida is a critical state in this election, so the fact that polls have Trump pulling a head is a statement to the fact that many individuals who live there are on board with the president’s agenda.
And, of course, we all know that you must take polls with a grain of salt, especially after what happened in 2016. Just a few more weeks and we’ll hopefully know whether or not Trump is getting another term.
