With 89 percent of the vote in, Trump was up 50.4 percent to 48.6 percent, The New York Times reported.
Those signs were predictive, clearly.
Trump took Florida in 2016 as well, helping propel him to a shocking upset over Hillary Clinton.
Florida was ultimately close in 2016, with Trump winning by approximately 100,000 votes for a 48.6 percent to 47.4 percent win.
In 2016, Trump picked up 4,617,886 votes in Florida.
Clinton notched 4,504,975 votes in the Sunshine State.
It’s worth noting, the 207,043 people who voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson and the 81,731 independent voters who voted for others could’ve played a critical role in 2016.
