Democrats crushing Republicans on sporadic Fla voters in early voting


 
Source: Tampa Bay Times

A trusted Democratic operative sent us some data on the early and absentee ballot vote in Florida so far to make the point that Barack Obama is crushing Mitt Romney when it comes to banking the votes of sporadic and infrequent voters before election day. So far more than 3 million Floridians have cast a ballot by absentee, mail-in ballot or in-person early vote ballot. Democrats lead by more than 60,000 votes, but it's the unlikely voter numbers that jump out:

Of the nearly 414,000 Floridians who did not vote in the last three general elections, Democrats have an advantage of more than 53,000 votes. Of the more than 482,000 Floridians who have only voted in one of the last three general elections, Democrats lead by more than 77,000 - a total of more than 132,000.

1. They open and tally absentee votes now?

And divulge 'early vote' totals daily?

Probably not.

2. They are only saying the affiliation of the voters. Not how they voted.

As far as I understand here.

4. Either way the turnout is good for Democrats.

It's a positive sign that 2012 is bigger in FL than 2008. It all depends on the ground game. If Obama wins FL he wins again.  

What turnout?  An estimation of affiliation?

5. Right, but FL is still playing games.

Liberal thinking is a two-legged stool and magical thinking is one of the legs, the other is a combination of self-loating and misanthropy.  To understand it, you would have to be able to sit on that stool while juggling two elephants, an anvil and a fragmentation grenade, sans pin.

Really now? How many threads have we seen where someone has declared victory for the magic negro.
Now, all of a sudden, when it turns against you, you discount the "results"?

Then-Chief Justice John Marshall observed, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

John Adams warned in a letter, “Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”
