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.

I could be mistaken, but I believe there's a thread for discussing polls.

Yes, there is. Voter registration numbers and early vote statistics are not a poll.

Early in-person voting in Florida starts Oct 24 in some counties and Oct 29 in all the rest of the counties.

In Florida, at least 50% of the votes are cast prior to election day either via mail-in ballots (aka absentee) or early in-person voting.

These numbers increase each year.

Nothing's in the bag. But when you're leading in the 3rd quarter, you want to make sure you're leading at the end of it. Not to mention it's Florida, where there is a history of funny business with electoral issues.

Plus, it's important to make sure some GOP Congresscritters go down too. Like Rubio and some House crazies.

Exactly. I am a Florida voter and am voting for every Democrat. My spouse is a registered Republican voter in Florida and also is voting for every Democrat on the ballot.

Rubio is ahead but not by that much. Voter turnout could make the different and send Rubio packing.

There is a debate Monday, Oct 17th in Orlando FL at 7PM between Rubio and Murphy - for the US Senate seat in FL. I don't know what channels this will be on.

It's more like the 4th qtr and the other team is arguing amongst themselves. I live in a majority Republican part of Florida, in 12 you were tripping over Romney signs now 1 trump sign plenty of Republican down ballot signs but no Trump, as much as I would love reading into that is probably more to do with trumps lack of ground game.
