OddsChecker's Election Verdict 

OddsChecker's Head Of Marketing, Sam Eaton "Donald Trump's popularity in Florida has come as a surprise to the bookmakers, and he now looks destined to win the state. The Democratic's odds in Florida now imply they've got an 85.7% chance of winning the state". 

"Donald Trump's chances of winning the election at this stage are significantly better than they were at this point in 2016. Obviously, with the current climate, the voting is very different this time around, but at this time in 2016, his odds only implied a 14.3% chance of winning".
