WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) -

In Ohio and Florida, the races are tight and the trend line is toward Donald Trump. Trump has the narrowest of leads -- up one point in Ohio (46%-45%), and tied in Florida (45%-45%). Trump’s most likely electoral map all but requires him to win both these states, in addition to others.

Trump has won over voters who were previously unsure, though there weren’t many such voters to begin with. In Florida, Trump benefits from slightly increased partisan support: Republicans have gone from 82 percent Trump to 86 percent Trump now. Florida Democrats were 91 percent for Hillary Clinton and still are.

Fifty-three percent of Florida voters describe Clinton as “part of what’s wrong with politics today.” Only 36 percent describe Trump that way, and more – 43% - see him as entirely separate from politics today, neither part of what’s right nor wrong.

In Florida, Clinton is up in the preferences of those who report voting early, while Trump is up with those who plan to vote on Election Day. This might be an advantage to Clinton in the end – as these votes are in the bank - but Trump’s self-reported planned Election Day vote is a large lead, so strong turnout could ultimately propel him.

Clinton is up with college women overall but down from last month with white college women. Ohio’s self-described independents have seen a swing. They support Trump now while they narrowly supported Clinton in October. The trait that’s moved for Trump among them is the economy. Among independents, more now say he can fix the economy than said so in October, while for Clinton, among independents, these views have dropped from early October. Clinton’s honesty ratings are also down among this group, and the number who say she "would look out for people like me" is also down.
