Donald Trump put on a brave face in Florida today, telling a roundtable with farmers he sees only sunshine.

"I think we're gonna win Florida big. I actually think we're winning," the Republican presidential candidate told them.

Mr Trump's schedule says otherwise - at least seven Florida stops in two days illustrate a desperate push for the state's 29 must-have electoral votes.

Mr Trump routinely scoffs at polls showing him trailing.

"I don't believe the polls anymore. I don't believe them. I don't believe them."

But Mr Trump today, for the first time, acknowledged what campaign advisers have known for days - the odds are against him.

"I guess I'm somewhat behind in the polls, but not by much."
