MIAMI — Poll-touting Donald Trump is back.


With recent polls showing him moving up in Florida and other states, Trump today abandoned recent talk of “rigged” polls and told supporters at a midday rally he’s ahead in the crucial Sunshine State.


“The polls are all saying we’re going to win Florida — don’t believe it, don’t believe it. Get out there and vote. Pretend we’re slightly behind. We gotta get out. We don’t want to blow this. This is the one chance we have. It’ll never happen again,” Trump told a gathering of perhaps 3,000 at Bayfront Park Amphitheater before heading to rallies in Orlando and Pensacola.


A little later, he said: “The polls have just come up. We’re way up in Florida – I shouldn’t say that because I want you to go vote.”


Trump has moved ahead of Hillary Clinton by one point in the average of Florida polls after trailing for more than a month.


With the FBI announcing it’s looking into emails that may be “pertinent” to its previously closed investigation of Clinton’s use of a homebrew server as secretary of state, Trump said that if Clinton is elected president,  “She’ll be in court for her entire tenure. And she’ll be convicted.”


Trump urged his supporters to take advantage of early voting, which runs through Sunday.


“We have to close the deal. We have to close. Get out and vote,” Trump said. “Nov. 8 is fine – better if you vote now. Maybe you don’t feel good on Nov. 8, you don’t want to get out of bed. You gotta get up. Uou gotta go vote.”
