New Polls: Trump Gaining in Pennsylvania, Ahead in Florida and Ohio

Why is Republican nominee Donald Trump leading in two battleground states and nearly tied in another with less than two weeks before the election?  Experts, analysts, and Washington, D.C. insiders lectured the American people on how this was not supposed to happen.   

According to a new poll, Trump maintains a healthy lead in Ohio over Hillary Clinton, 46 to 42 percentage points and in a Bloomberg Politics poll of Florida, Trump leads Clinton 45 to 43.  In Pennsylvania, Trump continues to dwindle Clinton's lead where he is now within three points of the Democratic nominee.

Florida and Ohio are must wins for the Trump campaign, and combined with a win in Pennsylvania, Trump would more than likely be the next President of the United States.  

In the most accurate poll of 2012, Trump is basically tied with Clinton nationally.

According to FiveThirtyEight, the Investor’s Business Daily/TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence poll predicted the correct outcome of that election, exposing Obama's dramatically underestimated performance and the falsehood of Romney's estimated clear victory.   

At a rally in Tallahassee on Tuesday night, Trump made clear his intentions in the Sunshine State.  “In 14 days we are going to win the state of Florida and we are going to win back the White House,” he declared.
