Well, this is awkward.

On Tuesday, TargetSmart/William & Mary released their latest poll of Florida’s early voters.

To say things aren’t great for Trump would be an understatement.

Yes. That’s right. More than a quarter of Florida’s early voting Republicans are refusing to toe the party line and are giving their vote to Hillary.

The poll also showed Clinton ahead of Trump 48 to 40 percent overall, with a larger lead — 55 to 37 percent — among those who said they already voted.

In the Florida Senate race, the poll showed incumbent GOP Sen. Marco Rubio ahead of Rep. Patrick Murphy by 6 points, 49 to 43 percent.

The poll was small, consisting of 718 surveyed and collecting information by phone or over the internet.

Regardless, if it is any indicator, Trump is in for a rude awakening in Florida.
