A poll from Florida Atlantic University shows Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton and receiving a surprisingly large amount of black and Latino support.

From FAU:
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA (FAU) – Republican nominee Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton in Florida 43 to 41 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson taking 8 percent and 5 percent undecided, according to a new survey by the Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (FAU BEPI).

[...]Trump leads among males 46 percent to 36 percent, but trails Clinton among women 45 percent to 41 percent.

Independents are voting for Trump by a wide margin of 47 percent to 26 percent.

Trump leads among white voters 49 to 33 percent, but trails with African Americans 68 to 20 percent, as well as Hispanics 50 to 40 percent.

“The race between Clinton and Trump among Hispanics in Florida is closer than it is nationally,” said Monica Escaleras, Ph.D., director of the BEPI. “Some of that is probably the Cuban vote. Trump’s support among Latinos in Florida is helping him stay competitive.”
Tons of Cubans are of European heritage and they hate communists, so it's not a shock they'd support Trump.

The real shock is the 20% black support, earlier polls showed Trump at 1% among African-Americans in Florida.

Whether that's changed or this was a polling irregularity we'll have to wait and see.

If Trump can somehow manage to break the democrat stranglehold over black voters or if Clinton can't get them out to the polls at high enough levels the election will be over.
