The RCP averages show a near 0 race in FL. If a poll showed T+8 here, there would be a freak show of comments about junk poll. Of course it shows C+8 and you see "omg, its happening".
-Logic
You have to learn to take RCP with a grain of salt, because they are MUCH more favorable to R leaning polls.

They added the NC poll to RCP, but not this one. -eyeroll-

Because Suffolk is a well known pollster, and is also not affiliated with the Democrats like this group is.

Yes!  Great news!  Longtime Cuban Pubbies are abandoning the Trumpster like a makeshift raft taking on water!

I believe the term here is cognitive dissonance. You'll attack the poll that has Trump ahead in Ohio because it is from Trafalgar (Despite a new Quinnipac poll supporting it), but then celebrate an obvious Florida outlier by a Democratic pollster. This is the definition of a double standard.

shove off. junk polls that favour clinton (e.g. the louisiana one with trump at only +3) are be´ng criticised just as much, and you know it

This data visualization is kind of interesting:

Well this poll was proven to be absolute garbage, despite Lawrence O'Donnell singing its praises to high heaven.
