The Democratic Coalition remains as strong as ever, perhaps even stronger than it's ever been.
This cycle, Democrats have added suburban educated women to their coalition in large numbers. They've improved on their edge with Asian voters, and also with Hispanic voters.
Indeed, sifting thru the data here shows a huge surge of democratic voters in the important battleground state of Florida.
As of Saturday, 565,000 Hispanics have voted in person in Florida, a 100 percent increase over the close of early voting in 2012, according to Daniel Smith, a University of Florida professor who tracks voter turnout.
In another sign of voter enthusiasm, of the 911,000 Hispanics who have already voted this year — whether in person or by mail — 36 percent did not vote in the last presidential election.
A total of 777,000 blacks have already voted in Florida, he said.
And more are coming to vote in person — 25,000 more as of Saturday, compared to all eight days of early voting in 2012.
This was before the last Sunday, which is a huge voting day for the black community across America.
According to another article of the same this morning.
"Over the past few days, we've seen black turnout explode, with more African-Americans voting early in-person than in 2012," Smith told AFP on Sunday.
As of Monday, a total of 835,000 African Americans had already voted in Florida. That is higher than in 2012, when 764,000 blacks voted early.
So, just to highlight, Democrats have outperformed their numbers in Florida by several hundred thousand voters prior to election day.
Another story on Miami-Dade highlights a huge participation jump for Hispanics fueled by new voters:
Through Saturday, according to Smith, 707,844 county residents had already voted: 44 percent were Democrats, 30 percent Republican, and 25 percent had “no party affiliation," a group that tends to skew younger and Hispanic, and thus toward Clinton. The demographic mix of early voters also looks highly favorable to Clinton: 58 percent Hispanic, 17 percent African-American and 20 percent white.
But the late registrants, Smith says, give the clearest indication that sentiment in Miami-Dade is running strongly against Trump. Of the 29,657 voters who registered last month, 41 percent are Democrats, 44 percent are unaffiliated, and ***only 12.5 percent are Republicans***. “That’s nuts,” said Smith. “These are the barometers that indicate the hostility toward the GOP candidate.”
The Democratic get out the vote machine has done it again. Obama leaped into action last week, 1 million+ volunteers were pushing everyday over the last week, and the results are showing.
Democrats Presidential Election structure is simply far superior to Republicans. That is particularly true this cycle as Trump has done little to invest in actual in-state infrastructure to turn out voters.
The "hidden vote" this election has turned out to be new democrats. In Miami-Dade Alone....
“Of the 707,844 voters in Miami-Dade, 201,000 did not vote in 2012—and 127,000 of them are Hispanic,” he says. “Hispanic voters are over-performing their share of the electorate.”
