Early voting has started in the ESSENTIAL swing states of Florida, North Carolina. and Georgia, and guess what!!??
Things are looking good for the Democrats!
Approximately 311,000 Floridians have cast their absentee ballots by Friday morning, and the numbers are increasingly moving in favor of Democrats and Hillary Clinton.
Compared to the day before and this point four years ago, Democrats are catching up to Republicans in the number of voted absentee ballots — a part of the election that the Florida GOP used to own. But now, Republicans are ahead of Democrats by just 1.9 percentage points (about 42-40 percent), compared with a 3 percent advantage held Thursday by the GOP and a 3.9-point Republican advantage at this point relative to Election Day in 2012, state elections data shows.
At the same time, the Florida Democratic Party is blowing away the Republican Party of Florida in submitting new voter-registration forms. Democrats have submitted 503,000 and Republicans fewer than 60,000 of the 2 million registration forms collected this year by about 700 third-party groups, according to the 2016 data posted online by the state Division of Elections.
A poll released Thursday showed Hillary leading Trump by six points in Florida. The poll, conducted by the Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative, showed Clinton leading Trump 49% to 43% among likely voters. Seven percent are still undecided.
In FAU’s August poll, Trump was leading Clinton 43% to 41%.
In North Carolina, 87,000 Democratic women have already moved to cast early ballots compared with just 60,000 Republican women. Men in the state, meanwhile, are closely divided: 50,000 Republicans and 52,000 Democrats have voted.
According to PPP:
PPP’s newest North Carolina poll finds that Democrats are running up large leads already during early voting. Among those who say they’ve already voted, 63% say they cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton to only 37% for Donald Trump. Interestingly, less than half of a percent say they voted for Gary Johnson, which could be a sign that he won’t end up getting that much more support than a normal third party candidate. The big Democratic advantage holds down ballot as well. Roy Cooper leads Pat McCrory 61-33 for Governor among those who have already voted, with Libertarian Lon Cecil at 1%. And Deborah Ross leads Richard Burr 52-34 for Senate, with Libertarian Sean Haugh at 7% among those who say they have already cast their ballots.
Does Hillary have your vote? Does your state have early voting?
