Democrats and progressives in traditionally solid-blue Miami-Dade County are in panic as early voting results point to a peak for Republicans at the polls.
Early in-person voting in a Democratic mainstay South Florida sees Republicans in the lead.
While Democrats are generally on the rise in Miami-Dade County, when early in-person voting is isolated and analyzed, it reveals Republicans are ahead. This increase in first Republican voters in a county that has historically produced extremely blue numbers has many Democratic analysts concerned.
Trump supporters are expected to grow in numbers on election day across the country, including in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in Florida.
Kevin Cate, a self-proclaimed former spokesman for Barack Obama, has expressed his concern about the matter on Twitter and has openly said it is not a good sign for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“I am concerned about Democratic participation in Miami-Dade. It’s a lingering concern, but still, ”he tweeted.
Ned Ryun, founder and CEO of American Majority, tweeted, “As of this morning, Republicans have won the early vote in Miami-Dade County, Fla., By about 3,000 votes. For the prospect, Hillary Clinton won this county by 30 pts in 2016 and lost the state again… ”
Rasmussen Reports, one of the polling institutions that got the right numbers in 2016, puts President Trump ahead of Joe Biden in Florida by 49% to 46%. Florida is a critical swing state that holds 29 important Electoral College votes as an award.
President Trump has urged his supporters to vote in person, projecting distrust of postal voting and the vulnerabilities it presents for voter fraud. If Miami-Dade is any indication, the president’s supporters are taking his lead.
President Trump warns the nation not to be afraid of Covid-19 and says the United States must reopen now!
