    MIAMI ó To kill Donald Trump's chances of capturing the White House, Hillary Clinton needs to win Florida. And to do that, she needs a big minority turnout. But Democrats are beginning to worry that too many African-American voters are uninspired by Clintonís candidacy, leading her campaign to hit the panic button this week and launch an all-out blitz to juice-up voter enthusiasm. Bill Clinton, once nicknamed the ďfirst black president,Ē embarks on a North Florida bus tour Friday in an attempt to draw African-American crowds. At the same time, Clinton herself will host events in Broward and St. Lucie...

    1.8 million Floridians have already requested absentee ballots. I'm assuming turnout will be around 9 to 9.5 million voters. This is already about 20% of final turnout. With this in mind, Republicans thus far lead with requests. We don't how they will vote but we can make some assumptions. These are hardened voters. Make your own judgments based on that. Still waiting for a few more counties to report.

    HOLIDAY, Fla. ó Donald Trumpís prospects for winning the White House will probably rise or fall among the strip malls and 1,000-square-foot ranch homes of southwest Pasco County. In this working-class suburb of Tampa Bay, finding people enthusiastically supporting Hillary Clinton is tough. Finding people enthusiastically supporting Trump is less difficult. Finding people fed up with the status quo is a piece of cake. ďItís not that I like Trump that much, itís that I dislike Hillary so much. I donít think [Barack] Obama did anything for us, and I see it continuing with Hillary. At least with Trump, thereís...

    Donald Trump is coming to a different Florida on Friday ó a Florida where heís on the upswing. Last time he visited the southeastern end of the state, for a Sunrise rally a little more than a month ago, Hillary Clinton continued to edge him in Florida polling averages. Heíd suffered a spate of bad press over his campaignís criticism of the Gold Star Khan family. He falsely accused President Barack Obama of ďfoundingĒ ISIS. When he returns Friday, to hold a rally at downtown Miamiís James L. Knight Center, Trump will be fresh off a batch of new polls...
  • Surge: Trump leads by 5 in Ohio, 3 in Florida . . . in CNN poll

    Make the polls great again Weíve said all along that a Trump surge in national polling is absolutely meaningful, not because the race is decided on a national basis - it obviously is not - but because a real national surge will inevitably be reflected in state-by-state polling. And perhaps the most delicious news of this or any day is that the best news for Trump in quite some time comes from Hillaryís committed sycophants at CNN, of all places: Among likely voters in Ohio, Trump stands at 46% to Clintonís 41%, with 8% behind Libertarian Gary Johnson and 2%...

    A new CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday shows Donald Trump opening leads over Hillary Clinton in the key battleground states of Florida and Ohio. Clinton enjoyed a significant post-convention bump earlier in the summer, leading Trump in Florida by 7 points in one July poll, but this latest survey shows Trump ahead among likely voters in the Sunshine State, 47 percent to 44 percent. In Ohio, Clinton led Trump by 4 points in a poll last month, but now she lags behind with just 41 percent to his 46 percent support. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, meanwhile, pulls 6 percent in Florida...
