Skip to comments.Florida GOP: Romney already beating McCain’s ’08 tally

As they study the absentee ballots and early-voting data in Florida, Republicans are feeling better about Mitt Romneys chances of putting that crucial battleground state back into the GOP column.
Thats because the Democrats huge 2008 advantage on that front has shrunk to a more manageable level. Four years ago, 354,374 more Florida Democrats than Republicans voted early or absentee before Election Day while in 2012 that margin is down to just 161,884, according to an analysis of state data compiled Tuesday by David Johnson, one of the states premier party strategists.
Addressing his memo to GOP leaders, Johnson writes:
More total votes have been cast at this point in 2012 compared to 2008 by a margin of 153,951 ballots, yet the Democrat over Republican margin is down 192,490 votes. No unusual activity has been reported as of 1:30 p.m. EST, the usual glitches and some lines in precincts, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Mediscare looks to be failing and Romney's bet on Ryan paying off...at least in FL!
I hope so. I don’t think Romney wins without Florida.
. . . and God, while you are at it, please visit defeat upon the slaver Bill Nelson. Amen.
I feel really good about Florida today. Yes, there were still stupid things going on in Palm Beach as usual. (they printed up a batch(35,000) bad ballots that won’t go thru the machines for counting so are counting them by hand I suppose) But as a whole Florida Republicans worked their collective tails off to get out the vote.
