Florida Proves It.
Statewide totals from 2020 indicate that Republicans in Florida cast half a million more early votes than Democrats.
When you add Election Day into the mix, Republicans cast over 915,000 more in-person ballots than Democrats. Even in Miami-Dade County, the bedrock of Florida’s Democratic electorate, Republicans beat out Democrats in early voting by over 56,000 votes.
That degree of emphasis on in-person voting tells me two things: Donald Trump’s influence over his base cannot be understated, and Republican leaders should capitalize on expanding in-person voting opportunities.
