Clinton has 46 percent support, with Trump at 43 percent, according to the final pre-election poll from the Florida Atlantic University Business and Polling Initiative.


Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has an advantage with early voters, while Trump, the Republican nominee, is ahead among those who plan to vote on Election Day, the survey found.

Clinton leads 54 percent to 41 percent among those who says they've already voted, and leads 49 percent to 40 percent among those who say they plan to vote early. Meanwhile, Trump leads 50 percent to 36 percent among those who say they will vote on Nov. 8.

Both nominees have popularity issues in the state, according to the poll. Clinton has 44 percent favorability and 54 percent unfavorability in the poll, while Trump has 40 percent favorability and 57 percent unfavorability.

And 30 percent of respondents said they believe the election is rigged — including 41 percent of Trump backers.

Trump has repeatedly said the presidential election is "rigged" against him, citing fears of voter fraud.

Only 7 percent of Clinton supporters think the election is rigged.
