With just one week left to go until the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are quite close in the polls, but a few pieces of data in particular are looking good for the Democratic candidate.

As of November 1st, Real Clear Politics’ polling average has Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton by 0.8 percentage points in Florida. That is a drop from this time last week, when Clinton was ahead of Trump in the state by an average of 2.4 percentage points.

But the latest poll that’s gaining a significant amount of attention is from William & Mary College, and it has Clinton ahead of Trump in Florida by eight points, 48 percent to 40 percent. Most surprisingly, though, that poll has Clinton winning 28 percent of Florida’s Republican early voters. On the other hand, Donald Trump is winning just six percent of Democratic voters. Clinton is also winning early voters overall, with 55 percent of early voters saying they voted for Hillary Clinton and 43 percent saying they voted for Donald Trump. Among those who have not yet voted, though, this poll showed the race to be much tighter: 43 percent of these voters back Donald Trump, and 42 percent of them back Hillary Clinton.

1. Without Florida's 29 Electoral College votes...

Trump has no path to victory at all. It makes it completely impossible for him to reach the 270 he needs.

2. With so many Republicans voting Hillary, we'll take GA, AZ, and OH. Latinos may deliver Texas too.

3. FL might be unique in that a lot of registered republicans are Hispanic (Cuban).

So don't count on that in other states.

6. Clinton doesn't need Florida to win

Trump absolutely has to have Florida or he is orange toast. The Hispanic community is coming out in droves for Clinton in Florida..

4. I wonder if this trend will keep up across the country?

I see Trump getting crushed in a landslide. I'm willing to bet that millions of
republican women across the country will either vote for Hillary or a 3rd party
person.

7. Unlikely.

In FL a lot of republicans are Hispanic. Not so for other states.

5. holy crap! fantastic

I have been wondering to myself how many registered republicans are voting D for President "just this once". I figured there were be a few percent, but never dreamed it would be this high. Significant if true.

that the Republicans are still voting Republican down ticket.
