FLORIDA - Early voting data released by the Florida Department of State's Division of Elections shows an interesting trend. Democrats beat Republicans by a very small margin receiving 2,558,000. The Republicans received 2,471,000 votes. This means Democrats took home only 39.85% of the vote while Republicans got 38.49%. This is a huge difference compared to 2012 when Obama got 43% while Romney only received 40%.
The Drudge Report is reporting that Donald Trump outperformed Mitt Romney by 130,000 votes in early voting:
"Data obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT shows presidential underdog Donald Trump outperforming Republican 2012 election results in Florida.
Mitt Romney went into Election Day down 161,000 in absentee ballots and early voting. He ended up losing the state by 74,000.
This time, in a dramatic surprise twist, Trump is only down 32,500! And Republicans tend to outvote Democrats on Election Day in Florida.
EDITOR'S NOTE: A late poll showed Trump nearing 50% in the sunshine state."
