Early indications show that the 2016 election will be close.
TODAY’S ANALYSIS: Voter turnout is quickly approaching 3 million. GOP and Democrats continue close contest with Republicans holding a slight edge in Florida overall. “Other” Parties voting has slow down considerably while “No Party” voters (independents) continue to surge. The Democrats are pulling ahead in Hillsborough County; but the rest of Tampa Bay is leaning Republican.
10/27 ANALYSIS: Approximately 2.5 million Floridians have already voted. Republicans and Democrats are neck-and-neck in both Florida and the Tampa Bay area. Republicans lead the Vote-by-Mail (absentee), and Democrats lead in early voting. “Other parties” are small by comparison, but the wild card is “No Party” representing independents.
