17. And the other polls show it tied in Florida or Trump with a slight lead

 

A CNN poll taken last week had Trump up by 4. Are you suggesting there was a 9 point swing in 1 week?

Then you got a New York Times poll showing the race tied, and a CBS poll showing Clinton with a 2 point lead.

So what you have here are polls with some disagreement. But taking it all in together it appears Florida looks like a dead heat. It's a toss up. Which is not unusual for this state. It's purple. It's a battleground.

The Monmouth poll has always been an outlier in Florida compared to the other polls. Now if another Florida poll comes out tomorrow showing Hillary with that solid 5 point lead, then it starts to give it validity. But right now, Monmouth is an outlier.
