Seddique Mateen, Omar’s father, is a big supporter of Hillary Clinton, Fort Pierce is not as favorable toward her. Additionally, during her campaign stop in Fort Pierce today, Hillary Clinton’s ever-present two-year cough was pronounced: [Snip] Stairs continue to be an issue for the candidate:

    Even Debbie Wasserman-Schultz knows Hillary Clinton will need to be carried to the finish line. While trying to whip up a lethargic crowd in Coral Springs, Florida on Friday, the woman who paved the way at the DNC for Clinton’s nomination, said her supporters will have to carry Hillary on their shoulders to the White House. “Let’s get this place wound up!” Schultz yelled, trying to fire up the crowd. “I want to hear my people down here in south Florida,” she said. “I know you have a little more adrenaline than I’m feeling in this room right now, don’t...
  • Poll shows Trump getting 33% of African American vote in Florida

    Mason-Dixon poll today shows Trump getting 1% of African American vote, but now a new Fox/OpinionSavvy poll show Trump getting 33% of the African American vote.

    The Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County are crying foul over Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark's decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations. Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes. Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood.

    Hillary Clinton may have gotten a slight boost from the debate as a new Florida poll shows her with a 4 point lead over Donald Trump. The race in Florida continues to predictably split among the various demographic sub-groups. Clinton leads among Democrats (83%-10%), women (54%-36%), blacks (92%-1%), Hispanics (64%-29%) and in Southeast Florida (58%-29%). Trump is ahead with Republicans (77%-13%), unaffiliated voters (41%-33%), men (49%-37%) and non-Hispanic whites (53%-33%). Trump still has very strong support in North Florida (53%-37%) and Southwest Florida (51%-36%).

The move comes two weeks after the conference, following an NCAA decision, decided to move all of its championships outside of the state of North Carolina because of House Bill 2 (HB2), a state law that requires transgender people to use public bathrooms that match the gender on their birth certificates instead of the gender with which they identify.

    Florida health officials who have been testing thousands of residents for Zika virus said Wednesday they found another infection: dengue virus. The health department said it confirmed a case of locally acquired dengue virus, the second this year in the state and the first in Miami. Dengue is a close relative of Zika and it is spread by the same mosquitoes. Health experts say anywhere you find dengue, you are likely to find Zika. It's so closely related that tests often mix up the two viruses, as well as a third relative: chikungunya. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...

Jones responded by opening fire on the armed robber, killing him. “The boy came up to him,” an anonymous co-worker told WSVN. “He showed him, he said, ‘You know what this is, right?

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Florida health officials have confirmed the first case of locally acquired Dengue fever in Miami-Dade County. The infection is primarily spread through bites of infected mosquitoes. The person infected with the virus has already received medical treatment and is expected to make a full recovery. Health officials are investigating close contacts around the person to make sure more people are not infected. Miami-Dade Mosquito Control says they are conducting aggressive mosquito control efforts in the area of concern.

Conversations between Omar Mateen and an Orlando police negotiator on June 12 were kept secret by FBI and local police until Friday. The secrecy contributed to misleading media accounts of the terrorist’s motives in the days after the killings. The transcripts were released by Orlando police Friday after a Florida court hearing held in response to a lawsuit filed by several news organizations....

    This is a modified headline from the original story, because the ultra-liberal, gay-infused WFTV would never miss a chance to portray gays as victims and make excuses for jihadist killers. Read the transcripts of the telephone calls between the killer and the Orlando Police Department at the link. Sorry, but I can't get them to cut/paste here. You can clearly see that even though murderer Mateen was killing patrons at a bar frequented by gays, his religious rage was directed at America, not gays. It’s very simple. We have to kill them before they CONTINUE to kill us. The Donald...

Check out the numbers below, and remember, Trump also dominates the share of Independent votes as well, meaning he likely already has a 200,00+ vote lead over Hillary in Florida.

    Pinellas always mails out ballots earlier to military/overseas voters. Good for them. Pinellas mailed out 3001 mail ballots on 9/21/2012 to military/overseas voters on the first day mail ballots were sent out. Pinellas mailed out 3478 mail ballots on 9/23/2016 to military/overseas voters on the first day mail ballots were sent out. 15% increase from 2012. If this increase is driven primarily by an increase in military voters requesting ballots, then this could be a very encouraging sign. Pinellas voted Obama over Romney by 5.5% in 2012 while Obama carried state by 0.9%.

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Transcripts of 911 calls between Pulse gunman, Omar Mateen and dispatchers were released Friday by the Orlando Police Department. Three calls were made between Mateen and dispatchers. Mateen called first at 2:35 a.m. June 12. Mateen was in the nightclub’s bathroom with several hostages, police said. Mateen told dispatchers his name and then pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. When dispatchers tried to get more information from him, he said he was in Orlando and hung up, according to the transcripts. A man identified only as Andy, a crisis negotiator for Orlando police, called Mateen at 2:48...

    A Gainesville, Florida, resident is crying foul at the local library’s refusal to add “Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel” to its collection. The book is an adaptation by Chuck Dixon and Brett R. Smith of Peter Schweizer’s nonfiction book of the same name, which is highly critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton. When Ann Lhota asked the Alachua County library to buy a copy of the graphic novel, officials said no. “When the book was requested, we already had 11 copies in four formats,” said spokesman Nickie Kortus, referring to the prose version. Lhota, who asked the library to purchase...

    1.8 million Floridians have already requested absentee ballots. I'm assuming turnout will be around 9 to 9.5 million voters. This is already about 20% of final turnout. With this in mind, Republicans thus far lead with requests. We don't how they will vote but we can make some assumptions. These are hardened voters. Make your own judgments based on that. Still waiting for a few more counties to report.
  • Suffolk University Poll Shows a Statistical Tie in Florida (Trump up 45%-44%)

    Republican Donald Trump has a razor-thin 1-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Florida—a statistical tie and a reversal from last month—according to a new Suffolk University poll of likely general-election voters in a state some consider the tipping point for the 2016 presidential election. Trump (45 percent) led Clinton (44 percent) with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 3 percent, the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 1 percent, and 7 percent undecided. Six candidates for president are listed on the Florida ballot, including Darrell Castle of the Constitution Party and Roque De La Fuente of the Reform Party, neither of whom received...

    Who will win Florida's 29 EVs? Current Projection: Trump +0.1, Weak GOP Gain Updated September 21, 2016 Race Overview Updated September 12, 2016 - The Sunshine State is painted pink today after a pair of polls pushed the aggregate average just barely into Trump territory. Five polls have been released in September, and they all show a very competitive race here. Trump's advantage is thanks to a JMC Analytics poll giving him a 4-point edge. The other four polls all show the margin at 1 or 2 points or tied. As always, the drama will be thick in Florida on...

    ORLANDO, FL — Hillary Clinton will take the stage at Orlando’s Frontline Youth and Family Center Wednesday afternoon as she looks to put some distance between herself and Republican challenger Donald Trump in the polls. Clinton was up only 1.1 percentage points in national polling data Wednesday, according to Real Clear Politics. In the Sunshine State, the race between her and Trump for the White House is neck-and-neck. A New York Times Upshot/Siena College Florida Poll released Monday only gave Clinton a 1-point lead against Trump in the state.
