National polls have suggested that the Republican candidate has gained substantial ground on his Democratic rival in the last week or so four days before the presidential election. That momentum also appears to have helped him in several key battleground states. Donald Trump is currently ahead in Ohio, according to a state polling average by Real Clear Politics (RCP), while Hillary Clinton leads by a small margin in Pennsylvania.

In Florida, RCP’s poll average puts the Democratic candidate ahead, but poll analysis website FiveThirtyEight says Trump has a 52.4% chance of winning the state’s 29 electoral votes. Both candidates are due to campaign in Florida today. The state is seen as a key contest that could tip the election. They both held rallies in Ohio and Pennsylvania on Friday, two states that may prove crucial on Tuesday.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
