As the record-breaking early voting cycle ends in Florida, the presidential campaign between Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is still being held in the state, and both campaigns hope to get support from candidates Squeeze as many votes as possible from the winners. In the last days.
The Democratic Party leads the Republicans with a total of 116,051 votes. This is the result of the state’s Democratic Party encouraging voters to vote by mail before election day. But the Republican Party has been closing the gap, voting in person for 528,000 Democrats early in the voting.
In many counties (only a few), there are only two days of early voting. The Republicans are trying to take advantage of this momentum, so it is best to win on Tuesday, and the state has traditionally won by a narrow margin.
“[Democrats] The Trump campaign adviser in Florida told ABC News, “It’s a good job of getting voters to register absent voters, and then getting those voters to return those votes. It’s a good job. We have worked hard to register more Republicans. Efforts. Registered before.”
According to data released by Florida election officials this month, Republicans reduced the voter registration deficit from 327,483 in 2016 to 134,242.
To select those voters, Republicans rely on a campaign method that Florida Democrats have largely avoided during the Florida coronavirus pandemic: face-to-face voter contact and assembly (mostly unobstructed) statewide.
The campaign adviser said: “I know people like to keep their eyes open at rallies, but they do excite voters.” He said that officials provided masks and encouraged social distancing, although attendees rarely followed guidelines. “People like to say that they motivate the foundation, but they don’t. They motivate the voters, and sometimes the voters are the foundation, but not always.”
The Democrats said that between now and election day, it is important to supplement their advantage of voting by mail with a strong personal turnout rate.
Karen said: “Obviously, we are driving out voters for early voting, but we will make sure that once we feel something is missing on Sunday night, we will make sure that we can continue to cheer on Monday, too.” Andre ( Andre, senior adviser for the Biden campaign in Florida. “We will make sure that we get as many votes as possible, but there is a ready-made plan to push the election all the way to the end.”
Organizers of the Biden movement and the Democratic Party have launched countless ballots across the state, from the golf cart parade in The Villages, the nation’s largest senior retirement community, to the musical “parrandas to polls,” and the holiday traditions of the Puerto Rican community .
Biden’s Florida campaign also recruited a group of spokespersons-such as the rapper Common and Latin American actress America Ferrera-and Republican supporters such as former Republican Senator Paula Dockery, in the whole country. States criss-cross and ensure that voters have a plan to vote as early as possible.
According to the Pew Research Center’s analysis of the United States, this week, former President Barack Obama was in trouble for his former vice president on the Interstate 4 corridor. The state is Florida. One of the most competitive areas among the state’s swing voters, Puerto Ricans are the largest community of Hispanics. Census Bureau data.
Obama said: “We have one week, Orlando, and another week-a week in itself-until the most important election in our life.” “And you don’t have to wait until next Tuesday to vote.”
According to the Florida Electoral Department, independent or unconnected voters have voted up to 1.7 million votes. Although it is impossible to know who they voted for before the results are announced, both sides have seen the opportunity to propose to unrelated voters, and their political preferences may not be so boring.
Florida Democratic strategist Steven Schale has been analyzing early voting data and believes that although registered Republicans may continue to narrow the turnout gap in the coming days, Democrats have a chance to win non-party voters (Sometimes called NPA).
David Odenwald, 61, is an independent voter in Atlantic Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Duval County, who voted for Biden after voting for Trump in 2016.
“I am ready to make changes [in 2016]”Odenwald, who drove to Uber, told ABC News. I just can’t vote for Hillary Clinton. A total lie, a deceit. The family is all for themselves.”
But Trump’s treatment of Odenwald, who once worked in the health care field, has had too much impact on the coronavirus pandemic. He said: “This pandemic is real, the numbers are rising, and he is working hard to play and it is almost over. This is far from over.”
As for Trump’s rally? Odenwald said: “They are like a super spreader, he doesn’t care.” “For me, he is responsible for many deaths.”
Shahr said that because of demographic characteristics, Biden may have an advantage among voters in the Independent League.
Shahr said: “More and more young people of color are registered as NPA, so the party position of non-partisan voters may be more democratic than 10 years ago.
According to Schale, 21% of non-affiliated voters are Hispanic, while blacks are 7%. More than a quarter of them are new or sporadic voters. He said that many of them are Puerto Ricans.
At a drive rally in North Miami, Obama shot the president’s handling of Hurricane Maria, which destroyed Puerto Rico in 2017.
He said: “When the hurricane destroys Puerto Rico, the president should help it rebuild, not throw paper towels, and withhold billions of dollars in aid until the election. One of our presidents actually suggested selling Puerto Rico.”
However, so far, the voter turnout in Miami-Dade County where Obama spoke is causing anxiety among Democrats. Democrats worry that Biden will not be able to carry this heavy democratic county by a large enough margin.
Democratic data analyst Matthew Isbell told ABC News: “The biggest cause of concern among Democrats is the gap between Hispanic voters in Miami-Dade.”
According to Isbell, the voter turnout of Hispanic Democrats in the county lags behind the 2016 figure.
“This is very important.” Isbel said. “I think it is finally starting to sound alarm bells in a number of different Democratic organizations nearby.”
Josh Mendelsohn, chief executive of the Democratic data and technology company Hawkfish, said that Florida is a “vote war”. He said it all depends on what candidates can rallied for among voters who have not yet voted.
He said: “Candidates should reposition themselves to take advantage of the fact that they can now narrow down the last convincing argument they are trying to make, the well-known closing argument.”
