Democrats Voting By Mail In Big Numbers





The Democrats grass roots campaign to get Hillary Clinton supporters to vote by mail appears to be paying off.

Florida Republicans have traditionally been very successful in having their supporters vote by mail. Democrats, not so much.

Democrats customarily do better with early voting, which starts next week around the state.

This year, it is a different vote by mail story.

Hillary Clinton: Vote by mail tactic pays off


As of Oct. 21, the two parties are returning their mail ballots in roughly the same numbers.

In more Democratic Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties, thousands more Democrats are voting by mail than Republicans.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that Clinton will have the Florida race won before Election Day.

There are some storm clouds in the statistics for Donald Trump on the horizon.

Sumter County is the home of Republican stronghold The Villages. It had only 5,574 Republican mailed votes received as of today’s figures. There are roughly 48,593 registered Republicans in Sumter so those voting by mail represents roughly 11 percent of the Rs.

Democrats had the same voting percentages, roughly 11 percent –2,670 voted ballots out of 24,413 registered Ds .

It appears that Trump’s lack of a ground operation is hurting him. How bad it hurts we will only know on November 8.

    It appears South Florida Democrats are performing well but I would assume the Statewide Demicratic deficit is Pinellus Hilksborough n Orange Counties.

    Broward voter turnout so far:

    100,763 mail ballots
    91,579 early votes (in 3 days)

    11 more days of early voting left!

    111,811 Democratic votes (58.1%)
    45,405 Republican votes (23.6%)
    35,156 “Other” votes (18.3%)

    At this rate, about half of Broward’s 1.18 million voters will have already cast their votes before the polls even open on Election Day!

    The Trump fans: “The rigged election has already started!”
