So for someone who voted against Hillary like I did, I am glad to hear Hispanics came out in greater numbers.
Florida is a swing state all the way. Rick Scott won both times by a very small margin (~60K votes)

It's more than 3 counties that are blue. I would say it's like 8 plus 6 than lean democrat. Most of them are very populated. The counties in Tampa Bay and Orlando are not conservative, the ones that are not blue are swing counties like Pinellas, Pasco, Seminole, Hillsborough and Volusia. The conservative counties are the rural parts and Jacksonville and the Panhandle. Even the county where Pensacola is, Escambria votes 40% democrat

Cubans don't make the bulk of the hispanic population, they are a little less than 1/3 of the hispanic population and in 2014 47% leaned republican and 44% democrat. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank...ocratic-party/
FL is very unpredictable.

For Trump to win a State like Florida, He needs to beat her decisively. She's going to receive thousands of illegal votes while thousands of Trump votes will never even be counted.

I just Don't think Trump can beat her. Here ground game despite being disgustingly unethical, is very effective. They were bussing in poor people all weekend in NV, and they'll be bussing them in for round two tomorrow. Trump is toast.

Don't kid yourself. Some are voting for Hillary and some are voting to keep Trump out.

Go Trump!
There are several reasons why Trump may win FL but having investments here is not one of them. The people voting for him don't live in the areas where he invests.

We can all register as whatever we like, but calling yourself an independent does not make it so.
I am? lol whatever.

I think your mind is playing games with you. I am not a Hillary Fawn. I have spoken against her many times.

What I am 100% is a Trump hater. I would vote for a cockroach or a turd before I vote for Trump.

FL is very unpredictable.



Obama won Florida in 2012 by less than 1% and he is a better politician and doesn't have the baggage Hillary has. Obama won Florida in 2012 by 74,309 votes with 70% of the Latino vote and over 90% of the black vote. 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.



Florida is a Republican state on the state level:

Governor Republican for 5 straight elections.
Florida Senate is 26 GOP to 14 Democrats for over 5 straight elections.
Florida Legislature: 81 GOP to 37 Democrats for over 5 straight elections.

on the Federal side: US Senator 1 GOP 1 Democrat
US HOuse delegation: 17 GOP to 10 Democrats.

For the record:

I don't believe ANYTHING posted on YouTube.

YouTube is good for watching music videos, instructional videos (like how to unclog a drain), or some documentaries (like the History of the Celts) ... but those ideological and conspiratorial garbage is bovine excrement.

Democrats need to stop practicing division politics.

They make an incorrect assumption that All Blacks or Hispanics are going to vote for them.

I have Black and Hispanic relatives in Florida who have voted for TRUMP!
